As both a parent and an experienced teacher, I have found media literacy to be an invaluable tool that I use to teach values and critical thinking skills. I have two preteen daughters whose media consumption is constantly increasing. As their mother, I am deeply concerned about their interpretations of the value messages they receive. I have taught upper elementary and intermediate school for 15 years, with the majority of those years in fifth grade.

The purpose of this chapter is to review changes in the conception of learning in education as discussed in the pages of the NSSE Yearbooks and related NSSE volumes throughout the twentieth century. In particular this chapter explores historical themes concerning changes in the conception of (a) the importance of learning theory in the study of education, (b) the definition of learning, (c) the process of learning, (d) the relation between psychological theory and educational practice, (e) the generality of learning theories, (f) the nature of individual differences in learning, (g) the nature of assessment of learning, (h) the motivational context of learning, (i) the biological context of learning, and (j) the social context of learning. For purposes of analyzing changes in each of these dimensions, I divided the twentieth century into three rough segments—early (consisting of the first few decades), middle (consisting of the middle few decades), and late (consisting of the final few decades).
