As we approach the end of 2017, Summit Public Schools CEO Diane Tavenner reflects on our progress this year and the year ahead.
The Science of Summit
“The Science of Summit” is a review of the research base behind Summit Learning, our personalized approach to teaching and learning.
Over the past 15 years, we’ve worked in partnership with nationally acclaimed learning scientists, researchers, and academics to develop an approach that supports that vision. We call it Summit Learning — it combines our core values, what science tells us on how students learn best, and cutting-edge research into a school experience that is tailored to every community’s needs.
Every single element of Summit Learning’s approach — from our student outcomes, to the design choices we made in order to achieve those outcomes — is grounded in evidence-based learning science.
This week on the Summit Sparks podcast, the dean of Stanford’s Graduate School of Education talks about why social interaction is everything in learning content, why feedback matters, and how today’s technologies are shaping the role of the teacher.
A recap of what we learned about Cognitive Skills on the Summit Sparks podcast this month, and four ways educators can build these skills in students.
