Who Is LearnNow?

LearnNow’s founders are determined to bring the science of learning to life: the Johns Hopkins Medicine Brain Science Institute; Temple University; Harvard University’s Graduate School of Education; the University of Delaware; the Families and Work Institute; and Maryland Institute College of Art. A broad range of educational and professional organizations also support LearnNow. Check out member representatives from each of the founding members by clicking on the institution’s name.

LearnNow is a portal on learning and children—a 24/7 go-to place for thinking, learning and doing. Through vetted information by scientists, clinicians, educators and—yes—parents communicating in everyday language, LearnNow equips everyone involved in the care and education of children with knowledge and tools to help connect the latest research and advances in psychology, education, neuroscience and cognitive science to raise and support our children’s success. Through social media we can share experiences and turn insights into action to support children at home, at school, on the playground and in children’s museums and libraries.
