2.13 The Science of Learning
At the heart of the Science of Reading, we look deeply at how we learn, not just how we read. Studying how we learn has been a dynamic field of research in education for years. In this episode, we are looking to further our scientific study and knowledge and remembering that education is not a static field. We are all always learning.
Tune in as we talk about how we can advocate the shift from focusing solely on the Science of Reading and begin focusing more on the Science of Learning. We’ll explain the reasons why we feel this is a beneficial shift and who will benefit from the shift, we’ll look at the key points at the heart of the Science of Learning, and we’ll share some resources you may want to consider for building your own knowledge.
