Educators, students, and anyone interested in the psychology of how we learn may want to check out the Learning Scientists. This resource is created by a team of cognitive psychology researchers and aims to “make scientific research on learning more accessible to students, teachers, and other educators.” Visitors may want to begin by reading the website’s FAQ page to find quick information on the different strategies for effective studying and teaching, with links to the project’s related blog posts for more in-depth explanations. Those who prefer visual guides will find posters and PowerPoint slides illustrating six distinct learning strategies under Downloadable Materials. The site also offers 7 videos and a podcast series with more than 40 episodes, as of this write-up. The Learning Scientists was co-founded in 2016 by Megan Sumeracki, an assistant professor of psychology at Rhode Island College, and Yana Weinstein-Jones, who at the time was an assistant professor of psychology at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell. This project has received funding from organizations such as the Wellcome Trust and the higher education nonprofit IDEA, as well as support from individual donors.
