We are currently partnered with Johns Hopkins Science of Learning Institute. We will share the results of our work as it comes to fruition.
ABOUT THE SCIENCE OF LEARNING INSTITUTE
Our goal is to understand learning at all levels of analysis— from the molecular level of understanding how brain cells work, through the cognitive level of understanding how children and adults learn to speak and read, and through the level of the classroom where people experience formal learning opportunities. The research questions that propel our institute include: What is the biological basis of memory? Why is it easy for a 2-year-old to learn multiple languages, but difficult for adults to learn a second language? Why and how do individuals differ in their ability to learn math? How can humans partner with machines to improve learning in both kinds of systems? Answering these and other questions forms the foundation for understanding learning across the lifespan in typical and atypical, gifted and challenged learners. Importantly, it supports the goal of optimizing learning for all.
As MBE Practitioners, we follow a collaborative inquiry-based model. The PK-12 educational professionals at Breck will work with you to design and implement meaningful research. Quantitative and qualitative design proposals are welcomed.
