Making schools work: How the science of learning can help students thrive

The Center for Universal Education at Brookings hosts a virtual event on Nov 9th, 2022 from 10AM – 11AM EST asking the question: How can a change in educational mindset—not curricula—help students both thrive in standardized tests and develop a breadth of 21st century skills? The panel discussion offers insights through a scientific lens about how to make schools work and cultivate joyful teaching and deeper student learning.

This event connects to the driver practice as identified in A New Education Story: strengthen the link between learning science and teaching practice. The science of learning builds on cognitive psychology, neuroscience, brain research and social psychology and offers new opportunities for transforming learning and education systems.
