VL - How Learning Works banner


How do students learn and how can we leverage this knowledge into great learning, through the design of our classrooms, learning experiences, and tasks?

The content, skills, and understandings students need to learn today are as diverse, complex, and multidimensional as the students in our classrooms. How can educators best create the learning experiences students need to truly learn?

Join us to look at an easily accessible process for translating research about how learning works into classroom practices that enhance and accelerate your students' learning.

Furthermore, dig deeper into the promising principles and practices that provide a starting point for building the capacity in learners to see themselves as their own teachers.

Leave this session with:

  • A deeper understanding of how the learning brain works and how this translates into potential for enhancing and accelerating learning in our schools and classrooms,
  • Insights into aligning these findings with what learning means in our own school or classroom,
  • Ideas for helping students understand how the brain works and the role of explicitly teaching them strategies to allow them to take ownership of their own learning, and
  • Practical strategies for integrating these findings into specific learning experiences that enhance and accelerate student learning.


Target Audience: Teachers and leaders who want to know more about translating the science of how learning works into their schools and classrooms.
