For the Internet generation, educational technology designed with the brain in mind offers a natural pathway to the pleasures and rewards of deep learning. Drawing on neuroscience and cognitive psychology, Michelle Miller shows how attention, memory, critical thinking, and analytical reasoning can be enhanced through technology-aided approaches.
Minds Online is important and relevant for teachers, instructional designers, and the general public. The book is written in a friendly, conversational style, and Miller brings together a broad knowledge of the field, grounded in her experiences as an instructor and cognitive scientist. (Richard E. Mayer, University of California, Santa Barbara)
As an expert in the cognitive science of learning and an award-winning educator, Miller is well-poised to bridge the gap between science and practice. Minds Online translates principles and findings from cognitive science into concrete, actionable tips and recommendations for educators trying to incorporate technology into their teaching. This is a terrific book. (Sean Kang, Dartmouth College)
If you teach with technology in any form, at any level, I recommend you put this book at the top of your tottering pile of required reading on higher education. It’s an outstanding book that provides a road map for truly effective online teaching. What distinguishes [Miller’s] book from much of the research available on teaching with technology, and pushes it beyond arguments about improving access, is her emphasis on the ways in which online teaching tools can actually improve learning for all students–not just those who have no access to traditional face-to-face classrooms.
