Webinar Details

Decades of research have clarified the key components of reading instruction. But how can we ensure that our instruction supports every student in developing and applying reading skills across the school day? Learning sciences research can help us respond to learner variability with strategies that support all students in becoming independent readers and learners.

During this webinar, you will learn:

  • Recent advances in the science of reading and factors critical to reading outcomes

  • What the science of learning says about the processes that are foundational to how all humans learn

  • Practical instructional strategies to support the cognitive skills and processes that underlie reading and literacy learning

Science of Learning: The Webinar Series

Accelerate Learning with Cognitive Science

When educators augment the great work they do with practices driven by the science of learning, that's when the magic really takes off. At Carnegie Learning, our cognitive scientists, engineers, and instructional designers work every day to understand how our brains learn best so that we can optimize and accelerate learning for all students. In our new webinar series, you'll learn how to apply today’s rapidly-emerging neuroscience advancements to your classroom. These webinars will help educators in all disciplines as well as administrators better understand how the science of learning is reshaping education.
