The Nature of Learning: Using research to inspire practice (Centre for educational research and innovation for education). This paper asks, "How can the learning sciences inform the design of 21st Century Learning environments."
Here's something to put the cat amongst the pigeons.
The learning sciences are importantly enriching our understanding of how people learn best (brain development) and showing that many existing school learning environments are in direct contrast to this.
Is this true? Or do schools regularly make decisions about teaching and learning informed by research, theory and experience?
