This second edition of Instrumental Enrichment: Creating and Enhancing Cognitive Modifiability presents and enhances the theoretical background and practical application of the theories of Mediated Learning Experience (MLE) and Structural Cognitive Modifiability (SCM) for a much broader learning population since its original publication in 1980. This book is targeted to teachers, psychologists, social policy makers, parents and students alike and who believe that change in learning can take place.
