A group of scientists who research learning came together from around the country for a National Science Foundation conference to share their “latest findings, lessons learned [and] new directions.” All participate in “Science of Learning Centers,” funded for the past decade by the NSF for the express purpose of deepening the understanding of learning. Among the takeaways from the gathering: Technology now plays a major role in understanding the learning process.

Most of the six centers bring together research people from multiple institutions in proximate regions of the country. For example, Spatial Intelligence and Learning Center (SILC) draws researchers from Temple University, the University of Chicago, U Pennsylvania and Northwestern U. The Pittsburgh Science of Learning Center (LearnLab) has scientists from Carnegie Mellon U and U Pittsburgh.
