Grants to this Grantee
for development of a new edition of How People Learn  
The National Academy of Sciences provides independent advice to the government and other groups on matters involving science. This grant would enable NAS to produce an update to the well-regarded report How People Learn (first published 2000), and would result in products to support the education and training of students—as well as researchers who participate in the science of learning as individuals or as part of interdisciplinary teams—to include possible new areas such as advances in neuroscience, cultural diversity, and insights into deeper learning. This project is aligned with the Program’s research and development priorities to ensure a rigorous understanding of student development of deeper learning competencies.
for strengthening two-generation perspectives on caregivers and young children  
The Board on Children, Youth, and Families of the Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council proposes to address the empowerment of women and their roles as caregivers in and outside of their homes in a new Forum on Investing in Young Children Globally. The Forum will use a two-generation perspective to explore reproductive health, economic opportunity, and caregiving investments. Forum members are a community of stakeholders across northern and southern countries who are interested in exploring policy-relevant scientific findings from around the world.
