Projects are still a good way to motivate students during challenging circumstances, but we need to take care so that learning actually takes place. How can we use what we know about the science of learning to design projects that truly work?
Motivating students with carrots and sticks—through endless, demoralizing cycles of high-stakes testing and assessment—is not getting us the deep learning and love of learning we desire. Fortunately there is a science of motivation, and we need to design it into the very fiber of our virtual courses.
When parents provide answers or too many hints via leading questions, it does not help your child achieve the primary goal: learning how to think and learn.
We begin each year by trying to get to know each child and helping them believe that our classroom is a place where they belong and can thrive. But once you have got that going, then what? Here is our Back to School Top Ten.
Watch this Folio Town Hall with Glenn to learn how teachers can use educational neuroscience research on mindsets and metacognition to support remote leadership and learning.
It turns out that the most important factor for being a successful student is using the right strategy at the right time. How can we help our children do this while navigating the challenges of distance learning?

Learning involves making all that content and all those skills covered during the school year stick in the brain. Now is a great time to help your child make it stick, and they already have what they need to begin doing that in their backpack.
Teaching has suddenly shifted, with parents playing a larger role in managing and supporting their child's school day. How can insights from research on the science of learning help us?
