From Dr. Clinton, re: EDIT 6400

Posted in Business tagged at 6:30 am by maf

This is a straight copy/paste from Dr. Clinton, in response to a query from Brittany about EDIT 6400 texts:

I have good news for you. We will use a couple of texts, but both of them
are free online.

(I may also distribute additional short readings here and there during the
course.)

The first text is Dr. Michael Orey’s e-Book that has been developed over
time for, and with, this course. It was recently converted into a Wiki
format. The e-Book is online at:

http://projects.coe.uga.edu/epltt/

The second book is edited by Bransford, Brown, and Cocking (1999) and is
called How People Learn: Brain, Mind, Experience, and School published by
National Academy Press in Washington.

Free online reading of this book, and printable chapters, are available from
the publisher at their web address:

(Note that there are 1999 and 2000 versions of this book. Only the 1999
edition is available in full html chapters. So the 1999 edition is a more
printer-friendly online version, and that is what we will use.)

I hope this helps – and I look forward to meeting you in August!

Greg
