 Book:  In order to learn: How the sequence of topics influence learning
    Ritter, Nerb, Lehtinen, & O'Shea (eds.)
    http://acs.ist.psu.edu/papers/ritterNLOS07.html

The order that material, for both facts and skills, is presented
or explored by a learner can strongly influence what is learned,
how fast performance increases, and sometimes, even that the
material is learned at all. In this book we argue that these
effects are more pervasive and important than they have
previously treated, and we are able to provide a preliminary
summary of what research tells us about how to order
instructional material. We explore some of the foundation topics
in this area of intersection of psychology, of machine learning,
artificial intelligence, and cognitive modeling, and of
instructional design. We include several case studies, and note
numerous questions that will lead to further research projects
and provide food for thought for professionals working in these
areas such as education.
