It can be a real chore to wade through all the information available about child development. There is now a new website to help: (www.LearnNow.org). It is a free, go-to site for parents, educators, practitioners and researchers in search of information about raising and educating today’s children, from birth all the way to 12th grade.
LearnNow features articles, interviews, videos, podcasts, blogs and print-based materials on essential learning topics, such as how to recognize and handle stress in children, what it really means to “pay attention” and how and why play helps kids learn. Scholars from the involved institutions–the Johns Hopkins Medicine Brain Science Institute, Temple University, Harvard Graduate School of Education, the University of Delaware, the Families and Work Institute and the Maryland Institute College of Art–join forces to create this content and deliver it in family-friendly terms. With scholars and clinicians spanning disciplines that include child development, neuroscience, education, child psychology, public health and pediatric psychology and medicine, the content covers nearly every angle of how children learn, from the social-emotional perspective to the biological changes that happen in the brain as children age. Parents and educators also deliver content, offering practical advice from their day-to-day experience with kids. MK
