I often write about research studies from various fields and how they can be applied to the classroom. I write individual posts about ones that I think are especially significant, and will continue to do so. However, so many studies are published that it’s hard to keep up. So I’ve started writing a “round-up” of some of them each week or every other week as a regular feature.

By the way, you might also be interested in My Best Posts On New Research Studies In 2013 and My Best Posts On New Research Studies In 2014 – So Far.

Here are some new useful studies (and related resources):

Benefits of ‘Deeper Learning’ Schools Highlighted in Studies is from Education Week.

Teaching Teenagers That People Change May Help Prevent Depression is also from Ed Week.

Lack of sleep increases risk of failure in school is from Science Daily. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Helping Teens Learn About The Importance Of Sleep.

A Sense of Purpose Increases Comfort With Ethnic Diversity is from The Pacific Standard.

This is What Heavy Multitasking Could Be Doing To Your Brain is from Psy Blog. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On The Dangers Of Multitasking.
