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.
In January I posted an article about a new research effort in Great Britain to apply more neuroscience research to education. ("Neuroscience in the Classroom). Hal Pashler just sent me article…Continue

Gary Cottrell suggested a posting of a blog written for an organization that works with the public and scientists to help make sense of science. This article notes the persistence of teachers…Continue
From the IMBES Journal: In the mid-1990s there was a flurry of excitement over the Mozart effect--listening to a Mozart sonata briefly boosts spatial intelligence. This finding transmogrified into…Continue
This short discussion on neuroscience in the classroom is a result of an effort in Great Britain to test theories of learning based on neuroscience. I thought you would enjoy listening to it. It…Continue
I loved the talks yesterday at the TDLC meeting. After hearing about emotient again, I had several thoughts:
Here is a link you can send out promoting the presentation/webinar on March 12 in support of Brain Awareness Week.
I am also including the html code so that you can embed it into your school websites, blogs, etc.

Check this out, I think it is worth supporting and they could use your help:
No one commented on my recent more highbrow post, so here is a lowbrow one. When I read about the valedictorians etc. of a local high school, I am usually impressed by the poor training they have received. This is a typical example. Mira Mesa high school is considered one of the better ones in San Diego. Here is its student newspaper article about where graduates are going to college: …Continue
