In Order to Learn

How the Sequence of Topics Influences Learning

Edited by Frank E. Ritter, Josef Nerb, Erno Lehtinen, and Timothy M. O'Shea

Oxford Series on Cognitive Models and Architectures

In Order to Learn shows how order effects are crucial in human learning, instructional design, machine learning, and both symbolic and connectionist cognitive models. Each chapter explains a different aspect of how the order in which material is presented can strongly influence what is learned by humans and theoretical models of learning in a variety of domains. In addition to data, models are provided that predict and describe order effects and analyze how and when they will occur.
