Leveraging Technology & Learning Science to Drive Secondary Literacy

October 5 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Words matter. Learning new words is foundational to academic success. Since vocabulary is fashioned, processed, and manipulated by the human mind, teachers cannot hope to effectively support literacy growth without understanding how students think, remember, and learn.

The Science of Learning has progressed significantly in the last several decades, giving us strategies like elaboration, retrieval practice, spaced repetition, and more to make learners more efficient.

Now it’s on us, educators, to use this knowledge to create a better generation of learners. Membean can help. Its engaging word-learning system that applies a cohesive set of best practices based on the Science of Learning helps students develop a curiosity and love for words. The marriage of technology and cognitive science promises to have a significant impact on literacy.

This panel discussion explores the importance of robust vocabulary instruction, the key principles of the science of learning, how technology can aid implementation at scale, and real outcomes from a school in Jeddah.
