Academic Research on Importance of Science of Learning PD for Educators
"In the past few decades, knowledge of human learning and development has proliferated rapidly.”
"The current approach to teaching is often disconnected from how students learn and causes too many students to drop-out, struggle, and/or work too hard to do well. This in turn, inhibits interest and careers in STEM, which are often perceived to be “too hard” by students or “for smart kids”
"Research has demonstrated that variation in student achievement is correlated with differences between teachers."
"COGx offers a truly revolutionary learning process, grounded in science, that all humans should have access to. COGx offers both direct instruction to students, and professional development for educators, that have the potential to meaningfully expand students' capacity for learning and educators' understanding of the learning process and capacity to teach all kinds of students effectively. I encourage anyone invested in learning and teaching to become familiar with COGx and the many gifts this organization has to offer."
"COGx is the finest example I’ve encountered of cutting edge research applied to educational methodology. All educators should be required to learn effective strategies to develop the foundational cognitive skills students need to engage in the critical thinking and creative problem solving that 21st century education demands."
"As an educator, I am responsible for teaching students. Yet, in my own education and training to become a teacher I wasn’t prepared to succeed as a teacher because my own learning didn’t include any training on the science of human learning. COGx closes this gap for educators and does so effectively."
