Synopsis: Psychology for Educators provides undergraduate students in education with understanding of, and critical reflection on, the issues in educational psychology that will impact on their teaching practice. Written in a student-friendly manner, this Australian text explores the relationships among theory, research and practice to help trainee teachers appreciate the relevance of theory to their practice. Divided into two distinct parts, Psychology for Educators draws on practical examples to illustrate key ideas while links are made to other disciplines in teacher-preparation programs. Rather than embrace every aspect of the schooling context, the focus is on aspects of student thinking and learning that are particularly relevant for teacher-preparation courses. Part 1: Views on learning Emphasises the work of behaviourist theorists including Piaget, Vygotsky and his followers, and information-processing theorists. Chapter 1: Behaviourism; Chapter 2: Piaget; Chapter 3: Vygotsky; Chapter 4: Information processing; Part 2: Understanding individuals: Includes topics ranging from intelligence and creativity to emotional and spiritual intelligence. Chapter 5: Intelligence and testing; Chapter 6: Creativity; Chapter 7: Learning styles; Chapter 8: Motivation; Chapter 9: Emotional intelligence; Chapter 10: Spiritual intelligence.
