To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Egan's book challenges us to rethink our educational process in relation to his idea of multiple kinds of understandings.Education in the future must be seen as a sequence of these understandings in order for students to devlop specific intellectual tools. Through his studies you will explore cultual and linguistic history to learn more about our human brain. He provides theory, insight and concrete advice for educators today.
The eBook is unreadable because of deliberate decisions by the publisher. The font is hard-coded to an incredibly unreadable font that is also much bigger than normal text. Formatting is fixed. The book is painful to read. Really disappointed with the state of this file.
A revolutionary assessment of educational theory. The book is provocative and well organized, well written. Egan provides an intriguing way to think of the somatic, the mythical, the romantic and the philosophical. The book culminates with the consciousness of irony, probably the most common attitude of those with a 'higher education.' Whatever you may think, I find his use of binary opposition very helpful in designing lessons for teenagers.
