1y ago
To celebrate Valentine’s Day and the month of love, we at Scientific Learning (now part of Carnegie Learning) want to share some reasons why we love learning and helping students learn. For the Love of Learning Andrea Culver, Senior Customer Success Manager, says: I love learning because it keeps me on my toes! I love trying new ideas out, and I can't do that unless I'm constantly expanding my knowledge. And, as Schoolhouse Rock taught us, "it's great to learn because knowledge is power!" That's the same reason I love teaching. Empowering students (and teachers!) to think about the same thing ..read more

Scientific Learning » Social-Emotional Learning
by Amy Takabori

Such is the argument by Bruce Wexler, professor of psychiatry in the Yale School of Medicine, and Goldie Hawn, founder of the Goldie Hawn Foundation and MindUP, a public charity that provides children with social-emoti ..read more

This is the second part in our series on upending the COVID slide. See Part 1 here.
