Save the Date for How Kids Learn: A One-Day Conference in the Bay Area on January 27, 2012
WHY FOCUS ON THE “HOWs” OF LEARNING
Much is discussed and written on what children need to learn. Less attention is paid to how they learn. What have we learned in recent brain research that contributes to this question? How can we apply this knowledge to improve our work with young people to increase their motivation and interest in learning? What are effective learning approaches that are currently being used successfully by practitioners, especially those working in out-of-school programs and in informal learning settings, and what makes them successful?
