Science of Learning

The Science of Learning Research Group brings together researchers, policy makers, educators and others to study how people of all ages learn in a variety of settings.

Some of the projects the group is currently working on include:

  • Examining how preschoolers learn to use and apply technological skills
  • Interviewing elementary school children to discover the connections between context, well-being and learning
  • Studying how adults learn to change health-related behaviors using social media in a weight-loss challenge

This interdisciplinary approach was created to better evaluate topics from a variety of perspectives.
