Learning Sciences and Edtech: Uncovering the Facts


Have you ever heard a new research study that contradicts the study you learned about _just last month_? Have you ever read conclusions of a study and after all of the cautions, you have no idea if _anything_ was learned at all? Do you wonder if we can ever truly _know_ anything about learning? Actually, researchers know much about learning, but haven't made the evidence-base actionable for others. In this panel, 4 learning scientists share the evidence and how edtech can help make it a reality.

Additional Supporting Materials


  1. Learn what we know about how students learn
  2. Understand how evidence applies to using technology in learning environments
  3. Apply this new knowledge to our own classrooms (whatever they look like)
