Understanding how children learn best is an important step toward improving mathematics and science teaching. This series features seven leading educators - Eleanor Duckworth, Joseph Novak, Hubert Dyasi, Constance Kamii, Howard Gardner, Mitchel Resnick, and William Schmidt - who share their ideas on how children really learn. Explore how technology affects learning, learn to elicit and build on students' ideas, and develop strategies for inquiry-based teaching.
This video workshop on how children learn for K-12 teachers and administrators consists of eight one-hour video programs, an online workshop guide. Review the course work requirements and the workshop website for more information.
