The Temporal Dynamics of Learning Center - NSF Science of Learning Center
There are no birthdays today
The Educator Network is one of the networks of the Temporal Dynamics of Learning Center. This network is designed to join educators and TDLC scientists in conversations about teaching and learning especially as it relates to timing. What mechanisms determine the time course of learning itself and what general principles explain the dynamics of learning across multiple scales and domains. You are invited to submit questions, start discussions, or react to articles. Please feel free to include videos, pictures and links to other research articles. If you have a good idea, we'd love to hear it. The scientists at The Temporal Dynamics of Learning Center want to hear from educators. Likewise, we hope educators will benefit from learning about current research and the translation of that research to the classroom. If you want to start a discussion please use the Forum button. You can reply to the topic by clicking on the topic title. There is also a BLOG section if you would just like to ask a question or comment on an issue of interest.
