About the six strategies for effective learning resources:

These resources were created based on research from cognitive psychology from the past few decades. To learn more about how we created the materials, see this blog. The materials are intended to teach about principles of learning and to provide teachers and students with flexible guiding principles to guide learning and studying. However, they are not intended to fix all problems within education. Further, we cannot guarantee success, and we cannot predict students' grades based on the use of these strategies. There are a lot of variables at play during learning, and we hope these materials can help teachers and learners to make evidence-based decisions. If you have questions about the science, try searching our blog and peruse our FAQ page.

Fair use of the materials:

Please use our materials and pass them along to others for educational purposes! We ask that you attribute us when you use the materials, and that you do not use portions of the materials or remove information from the materials. The materials may not be used commercially.
