How Learning Happens

blog image

This October, Edutopia debuted a new collection of videos from its popular How Learning Happens series profiling best practices for out-of-school learning at work. Two of the ten new videos feature Thompson Island Outward Bound and were created after an Edutopia film crew spent time on Thompson Island observing and interviewing Thompson Island Outward Bound staff members and students from the Donald McKay K-8 School.

Edutopia is a highly regarded source whose mission is to shine “a spotlight on what works in education” and to “show people how they can adopt and adapt best practices.” The new collection connects what we know about the science of learning and development with practical applications for educators and providers in youth-serving settings and includes expert commentary from Dr. Linda Darling-Hammond and Karen Pittman — nationally-recognized leaders in the field of learning and youth development.
