Working in Schools
Psychological science plays a critical role in helping us understand how people gather and process information. Psychologists use scientific research to address issues that are crucial to educational success in every setting where people learn.
The data that psychologists gather about how we retain new information are often applied to help people achieve peak performance in school, at work, in sports, at home and in every facet of our lives. Information about how we learn can be used to improve teacher instructional methods, refine testing processes, shape workplace training programs, and guide coaching and training for sports teams, both on and off the field.
