Where the science of learning meets the art of teaching
We combine learning science insights with the art of teaching to empower all students and instructors to succeed.
We are a learning science company.
Learning science guides everything we do. It fuels our mission to help millions of students succeed,
from childhood through adulthood.
Learning science is interdisciplinary.
Learning science combines research, data, and practices to help educators teach better and students learn more. It draws from disciplines including cognitive neuroscience, learning analytics, data science, behavioral economics, and educational psychology. We draw upon all of these fields to create education solutions that are nimble and powerful enough to meet the ever-changing needs of students and teachers worldwide.
Learning science is dynamic.
Our learning scientists implement some of today's most innovative tools and methodologies to examine how learning happens and how instructors teach. They translate and apply the latest research and findings in their fields to continuously evolve and validate our curriculum solutions and technologies. By applying data science to curate billions of learning interactions, we’ve identified trends, patterns and opportunities to improve learning at the individual and organizational level. These deep insights allow us to create more relevant and impactful experiences for students, and more intuitive and informative tools for educators.
Learning science is collaborative.
In today's digitally-driven education environment, collaboration is the key to sustainable innovation. The McGraw Hill Learning Science Research Council is a collective of our own senior researchers and an Advisory Board of research experts from colleges and universities around the world. The Research Council is dedicated to examining the use of technology in improving learning outcomes at all levels. Current areas of research include:
- Models and Algorithms
- Scalable Computation
- Instructional Quality
- Learner Insights
Learning science is empowering.
Learning science can help change the way students and instructors experience education in the classroom and beyond. The right approach can deeply personalize student learning, accelerate performance, and enable instructors. For students, this means having access to a more personalized and effective learning pathway. For instructors, this means more intuitive tools, less time to complete routine tasks, and more time to spend with students.
