Cognitive Sciences and Learning

Some of the most well known work produced by the Board on Behavioral, Cognitive, and Sensory Sciences has been in the areas of cognitive science and learning. The interdisciplinary nature of the Board has facilitated a potent blending of cognitive science and learning science to produce landmark reports such as How People Learn and How Students Learn: History, Mathematics, and Science in the Classroom. BBCSS has also produced important reports on such topics as reading, minority students in special and gifted education, autism, education standards, education research, education technology, and education financing.
