New research highlights how to optimize student learning.
Edutopia recently shared an article on "Bringing the Science of Learning into Classrooms," which highlights new research on the developing brain and looks at various ways that schools can re-envision learning to account for the new findings.
Here are some of the takeaways:
"Strong, long-lasting relationships between grown-ups and children in schools can override persistent negative experiences, priming a developing brain to learn and acquire more complex skills."
We know that the one thing that has the most significant impact on a student's learning is his/her teacher.
That's why we make it a top priority to invest in teachers through our Professional Learning, our events, and our LONG + LIVE + MATH community resources. We want to support you in the work that you're doing to give every child the education they deserve and equip them for a successful future.
"Our brains do not mature on precisely calibrated schedules, and students throughout the school-age years arrive in classrooms representing a wide spectrum of cognitive, social, and emotional development. Personalization is understanding where each student is developmentally, and scaffolding a learning experience that begins at their current level."
We couldn't agree more, which is why we developed MATHia to coach students 1-on-1 the way a human tutor would. Students enter our classrooms with a wide range of skills and abilities, and we need to meet them exactly where they are and provide personalized learning experiences designed specifically for them so they can truly master mathematical concepts and develop into critical thinkers and problem-solvers.
