The Wellcome Trust funded Science of Learning Zone is a website for researchers and teachers to discuss the science of learning. The event is running from January until June, and each fortnight features a new set of scientists with expertise in a given topic area.
This fortnight, the topic is Early Development. The Zone features some introductory text for each topic. In Early Development, the text covers the development of reading, writing and basic mathematics skills. The Ask function allows teachers to pose questions to the scientists, and weekly hour-long live chats enable more in depth discussions in a forum style chat.
An easy way to get involved is to simply browse the questions that have already been asked, and read the responses and comments given.
This exciting event is part of the Wellcome Trust Education and Neuroscience initiative.
