How Children Learn by Stella Vosniadou

This article identifies twelve conditions that promote learning. Here are a few to whet your appetite:
1. "Learning requires the active, constructing involvement of the learner."
2. "Learning is primarily a social activity and participation in the social life  of the school is central for learning to occur."
3. "People learn best when they participate in activities that are perceived to be useful in real life and are culturally relevant."

The article is organized in such a way that you can read in front to back or 
just look at each of the twelve points.
