Video Series: How Learning Happens

Last year Eduoptia, the education foundation created by George Lucas, issued a video series that we encourage members to visit and share if you have not already done so. In this series, Edutopia says it “explores how educators can guide all students, regardless of their developmental starting points, to become productive and engaged learners.”

“Featuring Linda Darling-Hammond, president and CEO of Learning Policy Institute, and Pamela Cantor, MD, founder and senior science advisor of Turnaround for Children…practices explicitly designed to integrate social, emotional, and cognitive skills in the classroom, the research suggests, can reverse the damages wrought by childhood trauma and stress—while serving the needs of all students and moving them onto a positive developmental and academic path.”
