Today’s focus on testing and content does not serve children in any way. It does nothing to meet their developmental needs or to prepare them as life long learners. Mostly it not only ignores the needs of children but also what we know about the developing neurological system of children.
Learning Lab Technologies is developing an online learning system that focuses on “thinking abilities” and developing the underling intellectual abilities that children need to be successful in not only academic settings but in all aspects of their lives.
Our work is based on a model of human intelligence called the Structure of Intellect. This model provides us a road map for developing the intellectual abilities of children for success in school and life.
