Progress in Education, Volume 18 $350.00
Editors: Robert V. Nata
Book Description:
This series presents substantial results from around the globe in selected areas of educational research such as: visual representations as a tool for research and learning, integrating medical education with medical practice, injury prevention lessons taught in Kindergarten, webcasting for patient health education, education equity and economic growth and others. The field of education is consistently on the top of priority lists of every country in the world, yet few educators are aware of the progress elsewhere. Many techniques, programs and methods are directly applicable across borders. This new and important book in the series attempts to shed light on successes wherever they may occur in the hope that many wheels need not be reinvented again and again.
