The article discusses pedagogical theories and their basis in psychological research. The author reviews the influence of Internet on disseminating pedagogically relevant research and globalising pedagogical terms and issues, such as metacognition, multiple forms of intelligence, thinking and learning styles, brain functioning, emotional intelligence and neurolinguistic programming.
