Teachers are not being provided with the knowledge and evidence to make their teaching truly effective.
In the field of education, learning engineering is new — and potentially revolutionary.
Part science of learning, part computer science, the field aims to use the data from large educational systems and platforms to map out better ways for students to learn and succeed.
This is part 3 in a series on what we know about how we learn and how this knowledge should inform how we teach. The series is intended for teachers, students, and developers of education technology who want to be more informed about their practice. Part I and Part 2.

We live in teams. We work in teams. We learn in teams. But what makes for a good team? How do we create the types of teams that actually support each other and lead to learning gains? Well, at least of the answer starts with football.
In this interview with Dr. David Handel, a retired physician, tells us about his new tool for students. The app, iDoRecall (iDR) strives to help students with time management and long-term retention and learning.
How to create change? This question comes up a lot in any sort of learning enterprise, whether it’s schools or companies, largely because we’re often learning in order to change. In other words, we gain a skill or insight in order to think differently.
The options for technology in the classroom have exploded in the 21st century. We can use clickers in our classrooms, smartphone and tablet quizzing apps, online course management systems, smartboards, and probably about 100 other things that I haven’t even heard of. But one question that continues to pop up is whether students should use technology to take notes.
