We learn from the moment we are born. How can we learn more effectively? This is the question that educator hosts Zac Chase (@MrChase) and Shana White (@ShanaVWhite) brainstorm with leading experts in the learning sciences to try answer in the 'Course of Mind', the new podcast from the International Society of Technology in Education (ISTE). In each episode, the hosts explore how the science of learning can shape the art of teaching for the whole child – with and without technology. Learn with us as we learn about what the learning sciences are and imagine the ways to make teaching and learning more efficient and effective, for all learners.Tell us what you learned!
