            'Absorbing, mind-enlarging, studded with insights ... This could have significant real-world results' Sunday Times Humanity's greatest feat is our incredible ability to learn. Even in their first year, infants acquire language, visual and social knowledge at a rate that surpasses... the best supercomputers. But how, exactly, do our brains learn? In How We Learn, leading neuroscientist Stanislas Dehaene delves into the psychological, neuronal, synaptic and molecular mechanisms of learning. Drawing on case studies of children who learned despite huge difficulty and trauma, he explains why youth is such a sensitive period, during which brain plasticity is maximal, but also assures us that our abilities continue into adulthood. We can all enhance our learning and memory at any age and 'learn to learn' by taking maximal advantage of the four pillars of the brain's learning algorithm: attention, active engagement, error feedback and consolidation. The human brain is an extraordinary machine. Its ability to process information and adapt to circumstances by reprogramming itself is unparalleled, and it remains the best source of inspiration for recent developments in artificial intelligence. How We Learn finds the boundary of computer science, neurobiology, cognitive psychology and education to explain how learning really works and how to make the best use of the brain's learning algorithms - and even improve them - in our schools and universities as well as in everyday life.

            Learning to code has never been easier than with this innovative visual guide to computer programming for beginners. Coding skills are in high demand and the need for programmers is still growing. However, taking the first steps in learning more about this complex subject may see...m daunting and many of us feel left behind by the coding revolution. By using a graphic method to break code into small chunks, this book brings essential skills within reach. Terms such as algorithm, variable, string, function, and loop are all explained. The book also looks at the main coding languages that are out there, outlining the main applications of each language, so you can choose the right language for you. Individual chapters explore different languages, with practical programming projects to show you how programming works. You'll learn to think like a programmer by breaking a problem down into parts, before turning those parts into lines of code. Short, easy-to-follow steps then show you, piece by piece, how to build a complete program. There are challenges for you to tackle to build your confidence before moving on. Written by a team of expert coders and coding teachers, the Beginner's Step-by-Step Coding Course is the ideal way to get to grips with coding.
