The cognitive science evidence base provides well-established principles about learning and memory that have direct relevance and high potential for classroom teaching and learning. However, relatively limited applied research is conducted in realistic educational settings and exploring educational variables relating to teachers, students, and the curriculum. In short, we have strong evidence about principles for effective learning, but weak evidence about how this can be applied and embedded in practice. A Learner’s Toolkit represents pioneering work in this area, translating learning science principles into specific resources and practices that learners and teacher can use throughout the curriculum. The initial results are highly encouraging. They also show that imparting knowledge of effective strategies is not enough. Strategies must be integrated into the curriculum, and teachers and learners need time, commitment and support as they learn to apply the strategies and make lasting changes to their thinking and behaviour.
