Learning and the Brain

Research in neuroscience is shedding new light on how students learn and develop. How can educators make the most of this information—and how can they sort genuine scientific findings from myths and hearsay? This issue will offer a solution-oriented look at brain science and education, highlighting both groundbreaking findings and practical takeaways. Key questions to be examined include: How might recent findings in neuroscience inform instructional practices and lesson planning? What aspects of learning have schools conventionally overlooked or discounted? How can schools create the best conditions to support student learning, including in the case of students suffering from trauma or adverse experiences? And what does the latest research on the brain and learning really say—or not say?
