Foundations for a New Science of Learning

Interesting article that brings together a number of different areas that relate to learning.  It particularly looks at very early stages of learning (ie in babies) and the importance of the social aspects of this.  eg Babies do not learn phonemes from machines or television as they do from other people.

Unfortunately, the place I was most interested in - formal learning the paper gets very weak.
