The Science of Learning Lab investigates how children and adults learn and reason using both qualitative and quantitative methods, in the lab and in real classrooms. Some of the research questions our assistants help us answer include:
How do parents shape children's complex reasoning skills?
We bring young children and their parents into the lab to observe how they talk to each other during cooperative reasoning tasks, and relate these interactions to children's independent reasoning.
How can we promote children's complex reasoning skills?
We bring young children into the lab and vary aspects of the task and environment to explore their effects on children's reasoning behavior.
Why are some students better able to learn from classroom instruction than others? How can we improve classroom instruction to benefit all learners?
We administer high quality video lessons to children in classrooms to see who learns best, to understand how to support all students in gaining the most from every lesson, and to understand what aspects of the lessons are most helpful to students.
What do teachers think are the best methods of instruction? How can we best communicate effective strategies to teachers?
We interview teachers to explore their intuitions about various instructional techniques, in particular those that prior research has shown to be effective in producing high-quality learning.
