Many things people commonly believe to be true about education are not supported by scientific evidence.  Urban Myths about Learning and Education examines commonly held incorrect beliefs and then provides the truth of what research has shown.  Each chapter examines a different myth, with sections on learning, the brain, technology, and educational policy.  A final section discusses why these myths are so persistent.  Written in an engaging style, the book separates fact from fiction regarding learning and education.
