The methods emerging in the field of Educational Neuroscience provide opportunities to examine fundamental processes underlying learning such as executive function, attention, and emotion. What lessons can be drawn from Educational Neuroscience that inform our design of teaching and learning experiences? Models and methods from educational neuroscience often focus on isolated tasks in laboratory-like settings. What does it take to use these methods in more natural settings? How can learning scientists and neuroscientists work together to move this research more “into the wild”?
