Unlocking the Will to Learn



April 1996 | 160 pages | Corwin
In this book Christine A Johnston discusses the Interactive Learning Model which uses the metaphor of a combination lock to describe the mechanisms involved in the will to learn. By aligning the three lock mechanisms (cognition/processing, conation/performing and affectation/developing), the will to learn and the power to learn is unlocked for the student.
