Mary Helen Immordino-Yang, Ed.D., a psychology and neuroscience professor at the University of Southern California's Rossier School of Education, studies the psychological and neurobiological bases of social emotion, self-awareness and culture, and their implications for learning and schools. In this episode, she takes a deep dive into how we can build upon our knowledge about how the brain learns to best support students post-pandemic and beyond. Along the way, she discusses her recent research into how the experiences of immigrant students impact their brain and psychosocial development; how the brain develops when students are allowed to drive their own learning; and how what we learned during the COVID-19 pandemic should influence the way school is structured.
