• Innovative methods spark motivation and learning during real time play with peers.
• Expertly researched "use now" strategies that foster rapid improvements in each child’s behavior and social skills.
• Our focus on “proximity” motivates children with "free samples" of the social world, well before they are required to pay for them with the tough skills of sharing, listening, and compromising.
How do you scale great teaching? Our pro bono "Social Impact Startup" is building out SaaS model training tools. We are combining our learner knowledge, habit cycles, and "narrow AI" to deliver "Just Right" strategies, enabling every adult to help children thrive.
Our edtech tools capture expert teachers' decisions, providing easily accessed guidance for less experienced educators, other team members and parents. We focus on identifying and maximizing each child's "teachable moment", answering the question, "What do we do next to help this child thrive?".
"Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships."...Michael Jordan.
A great roster of talented people are making our Learning Seeds program better every day. From educational experts, to teachers, to designers, to software developers, to programmers, to marketing and financial experts, we're grateful to all the wonderful people who are driven to make this program improve the lives of children everywhere.
We're rolling out an exciting itinerary of talks this spring!
• An invited speaker at the MAAEYC conference, with an audience of early childhood educators.
• Co-presenter of a successful case study of using Learning Seeds methodology for inclusive summer camp experiences at the largest annual conference for Camp directors.
• Continue training and collaborating with educators at the exemplary Charlestown Nursery School.
• A guest teacher at BU for graduate and undergraduate courses on play and Inclusion.
The media gives us the opportunity to flag the important role that social development plays in enriching the lives of our young people...
guiding them towards independent participation in school, play and their ever-broadening social community.
Thanks to Kirsten Waerstad and Dharmesh Shah of Mission Marketing for a generous grant, we will be expanding this website to include a large, usable knowledge base for parents of children with social needs.
