Hello, Futurenauts!

As a member and researcher of the Pittsburgh Science of Learning center, I’m currently attending the National Science Foundation’s inter-Science of Learning Center conference in Philadelphia. It tends to showcase research that isn’t quite “classroom-ready” on the spectrum of educational research; for example, the most recent talk was about the common neural substrates of mathematical and reading skills. Interesting stuff, but unless you have a degree in neuroscience and a transcranial magnetic stimulation device in your classroom, there’s probably not much practical application from a teacher’s standpoint! Still, if I see something which looks relevant to our mission here at Future Imperfect, I’ll be sure to post about it.
