Whether it is feedback between students and teachers, collaboration among teachers, or support from leadership, the impact of social influences on learning will be more important than ever before and more difficult to sustain. How can technology support social influences for better impacts on student learning? How do we manage the challenge and turn it into opportunity? Join us for the conversation.
Opportunity in the Midst of Uncertainty: Using Technology and the Learning Sciences to Improve Impact with Christine Drew and Richard Erdmann, authors of MEGAThinking: Think BIG, try small
July 16, 2020 1 PM MDT
How do we leverage the science of learning into learning environments that include and even rely on technology? How can we create a more robust opportunity for all levels of learning as we expand technology’s role? What are good strategic plans to operationalize effective practices in our districts and schools? Come and hear ways to turn the adversity of COVID into an opportunity to learn.
A New Book from FASL
“…we share a lot of heroes in this work. It is fascinating why this whole corpus seems unknown when the narrative of learning is so powerful. Best wishes with the book. It needs to be well read by so many.”
– John Hattie

Small Steps for Transformative Results
What We Do
FASL’s team-based, peer-to-peer, school improvement model uses the sciences of cognition, motivation, and social-emotional learning to move the needle of student growth school-wide.
FASL designs one- to three-day events to challenge participants and to act with new knowledge.
FASL consultants work with school, district, and state leadership to consolidate initiatives and align materials to the learning sciences. Increase your returns on investments with measurable growth.
Keynotes are paired with breakout sessions to move inspiration to innovation. Participants are asked to act on what they learned at the keynote address.
Teacher & Leadership Development
FASL works with teachers who want to become leaders in the learning sciences. Using webinar-based book studies and blended learning models, we explore the sciences of leadership and learning.
News From FASL
When we work with teachers, we ask them to report student improvement results at each professional development session. The teachers with the most impressive results have at least one practice in common. They explain to their students what learning practices they are changing and why.
When we work with teachers and school leadership, we use Learning Principles as foundations for Design Strategies. Principles in something as essential as learning should have application for all students, in all subjects, and all grade levels. In addition, they should extend well beyond the classroom.
