Models of the learning process

Let us now turn our attention to some of the models of learning that educational psychologists and educationalists have developed over the years. We will start by examining the three that have probably proved most influential - Gagné's 1956 hierarchy of learning, Piaget's 1969 model of cognitive development and Kolb's 1984 experiential cycle - before turning to one of the most recent - Race's 1993 'ripples' model of learning.
