Learning is complex. Decades of research in the science of human learning have produced results that could transform education; however, research findings have not often made a positive impact on teaching practice, educational technology design, or student learning. Likewise, the wisdom of instructors and authentic learning experiences rarely have an impact on research. In this talk, I will describe a model for using educational technology to shift the relationship between learning research and teaching practice in service of simultaneously improving student learning and contributing to our fundamental understanding of human learning.
