What do we mean when we talk about the learning sciences?

Learning science utilizes data from a variety of scientific disciplines, including cognitive science, motivational psychology, behavioral economics, neuroscience, and more to get insights into how people learn. By analyzing this data, we’re able to identify student outcomes and create curricula and learning environments with a higher likelihood of positively impacting students.
