The Science of Learning and Development Webinar

August 4, 2020  • Education and Society Program

Schools are grappling with what should stay the same and what needs to be completely overhauled. This webinar will explore how brain science can help us do more that replicate an old system. From instilling a sense of belonging to the differences between adolescent learners and young children, we will lift up best practices and research. We are also seeking additional recommendations, particularly in ways trauma-informed care will aid school recovery and renewal. Watch the recording below.
