The identity and role of the teacher have moved through the times with remarkable stability.

Memory is the essential brain function that allows us to develop a sense of self, to store memories, to reason, to understand, and of course to learn.

Here are 6 types of interactions inherent to learning and teaching, and their specifics in the context of online education.
Basing themselves on the principles of cognitive psychology, researchers at the University of Melbourne have recently developed a new...

Not so long ago, it was thought that learning was a strictly rational process in which emotions did not have a big role. This belief was formed together with a certain definition of intelligence derived from the "famous" IQ tests - yet designed to detect learning difficulties in children.
In this research, we present the results of a systematic review of the literature describing how deep and surface approaches to learning are associated with different assessment practices.
Both teachers and learners could benefit from knowing the types of emotions that are most often present in learning. Firstly to be able to tame them and manage them; and then, to develop adapted approaches, but also to recognize them in learners and intervene with tact.
