About the special issue

This special issue was motivated by the recent, wide-ranging interest in the development of children's selective social learning.

Human beings have a far-reaching dependence on others for information, and the focus of this issue is on the processes by which children selectively and intelligently learn from others. It showcases some of the finest current work in this area and also aims to encourage new lines of investigation and new ways of thinking about how children learn from others.

This issue also serves to highlight this new direction in basic research for the broader community of researchers, educators, and practitioners.
