Bridging Education and Cognitive Sciences

May 31, 2011

Mitchell Nathan recently participated in the first Latin American School for Education, Cognitive and Neural Sciences in San Pedro de Atacama, Chile. About two dozen faculty from around the world and about 45 graduate students explored new solutions to fill the gap between education and the cognitive and neural sciences. Nathan says this event was unusual in the format and goals, and in the efforts to get educational researchers and neuroscientists talking in an extended way. The results are illustrated in a series of projects proposals dedicated to study several issues concerning learning in the classroom. A link to the event.
