What We Do

Learning Sciences International combines instructional strategies grounded in deep research with advanced web-based technology. We provide research-based professional development, customized initiatives, personalized e-learning, on-site training, research services, and supplementary resources to teachers, leaders, schools, and districts.


Why We Do It

As education professionals, we are interested in one thing only: helping educators deepen student learning through their own growth and development.

Student achievement is directly linked to teacher effectiveness. We enable teachers and entire education systems to easily and accurately measure and manage their own effectiveness and professional development. With powerful, standards-driven instructional strategies, leadership coaching, and formative assessment techniques, educators and leaders get a clear picture of the impact they have and what they need to do to help all students succeed in today’s increasingly demanding learning environment.
