On January 15, Edutopia (the George Lucas Educational Foundation) released How Learning Happens, a series of more than 20 videos showcasing teaching practices, grounded in the science of learning and development, that educators can use in their classrooms right away. The series was produced in collaboration with the National Commission on Social, Emotional, and Academic Development and with support from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative. Turnaround for Children, The Science of Learning and Development Initiative, Learning Policy Institute, American Institutes for Research and EducationCounsel collaborated closely with Edutopia to develop the content.
Pairing brain and social science research with real-life examples from schools, the videos feature expertise in science and practice from Turnaround Founder and Senior Science Advisor, Pamela Cantor, M.D. and Learning Policy Institute President and CEO Linda Darling-Hammond, Ed.D.
