Upending the COVID Slide with Neuroscience

Research on summer learning loss has revealed the potentially devastating impact of COVID-19-induced school closures on student academic achievement. But there is some positive news. In a new book entitled How the Brain Learns, neuroscientist Stanislas Dehaene reviews four pillars of learning that teachers can incorporate to accelerate student learning, both through remote instruction and in the classroom. These pillars of learning also provide a guideline for selecting educational technology that can help override the COVID slide.

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.
