When it comes to our students, we know that one size does not fit all. While most teachers have access to abundant academic and well-being data, they don’t have objective data on students’ cognition, or how students learn, which accounts for the majority of learner variability. This course speaks to the importance of using the science of learning to understand students’ cognitive strengths and skills to support, which is the most common source of behavioral and learning challenges. Teachers will be able to see their students through a new lens and feel empowered to use new insights to support them through easy-to-implement, personalized strategies that address everyday challenges in teaching, learning, and behavior.

Goals and Objectives of this Course:

  • Use prompts about the science of learning, cognitive skills, and data to describe assumptions and insights of practitioners, researchers, and self, including how the information relates to professional education practice and growth.
  • Connect, in writing, the impact cognitive skills have on academic outcomes and use case studies to identify effective teacher and student strategies to support inconsistencies or difficulties in school.
  • Connect, in writing, cognitive skills to the root cause of student behavior and identify effective strategies to support students in and out of school.
  • Document observations of actions, words, and supports an educator provides during a lesson and connect the observations to a variety of cognitive skills.
  • Triangulate a variety of data sources to understand the learner as a whole and identify effective strategies to incorporate into future lesson design.
