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 EDUCATION RESEARCH STUDIES IN 2020 – PART TWO.
You can see all my “Best” lists related to education research here.
Here are some new useful studies (and related resources):
New Research Makes a Powerful Case for PBL is from Edutopia.
Four new studies bolster the case for project-based learning is from The Hechinger Report.
Helping behavior may mitigate academic risk for children from low-income neighborhoods is from Eureka Alert. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Teaching & Learning About The “Helper’s High”
What Research Says About Breaking the Negative Thought Cycle is from Ed Week.
I’m adding this tweet to The Best Sites For Learning That Money Does Matter For Schools:
