What does “success” look like when educating the whole learner? What are the barriers to students starting, persisting, and putting in mental effort to their learning? How do we practically put what we know about these things, and learning itself, to work to help educators and students? Chan Zuckerberg’s vice president of learning science Bror Saxberg talks about how learning science principles can inform solutions and tools that help teachers meet student needs in his keynote address at Education Week’s Leaders To Learn From event in Washington. Saxberg leads the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative’s (CZI) work to support the development of tools and sharing of approaches grounded in the science of learning.
