The Science of Learning

The Science of Learning

Educational neuroscience (also ‘Neuroeducation’ and ‘Mind, Brain and Education’) are growing disciplines. They bring together neuroscience, psychology and education with the aim to produce powerful school learning experiences.

As professionals facilitating learning on a daily basis, it is clear why teachers want to understand more about the brain and learning. However the reality is that not all ‘brain-based’ resources and programmes available are based on research.

Education is becoming more evidence informed. There is great interest to discover if this knowledge can improve education, and help us understand why things that work are successful.

This zone provides an opportunity for teachers to have conversations with scientists about how young people learn.

We have neuroscientists and psychologists who carry out research on a broad range of topics, from maths and anxiety to memory and language. Each fortnight we will focus on a particular topic.

Whatever your question they are here to speak with you about the latest discoveries in the science of learning. ‘ASK‘ a question and you will receive an email when the scientists reply, or ‘CHAT‘ live with scientists in real time discussions.

Launch – January 2018
