Designing for Learning—Applying Learning Science

How does learning happen, and how can we design environments to support it? Research has given us important insights and models to help school designers answer these questions, but this research base is extensive, complex, and encumbered by the design of traditional schools. Transcend’s Designing for Learning resources summarize in digestible and actionable ways what is known about how learning happens. This panel will discuss how designers are applying these resources to learning environments.
