Learning and development science explains that social, emotional and cognitive domains are deeply intertwined in the learning process. Supporting the full integration of these dimensions within a positive school climate can dramatically improve K-12 student learning outcomes.

To explore the learning sciences’ potential in K-12 education systems, iNACOL will host a webinar in conjunction with the Learning Policy Institute (LPI). Later this month, LPI will release a publication on learning and development science research and its implications for transforming K-12 educational practice. Join this webinar on May 16, 2018 for key takeaways from the report.

Participants will learn how K-12 education systems can create personalized learning environments that better support student learning and development — transforming our one-size-fits-all system into one that’s grounded in research and designed for all students to succeed. This archived webinar will help school leaders understand how trustful relationships, positive school climate and restorative approaches to discipline can enhance learning. In addition, the webinar will show how K-12 education systems can offer students opportunities to engage in real-world applications of learning and competency-based performance assessments.
