Economic Consequences of Network Structure
We survey the literature on the economic consequences of the structure of social networks. We develop a taxonomy of "macro" and "micro" characteristics of social-interaction networks and discuss both the theoretical and empirical findings concerning the role of those characteristics in determining learning, diffusion, decisions, and resulting behaviors. We also discuss the challenges of accounting for the endogeneity of networks in assessing the relationship between the patterns of interactions and behaviors.

"Songs are like portals. Look into them and you can see the world in which they were made, see the social, cultural, and political landscapes that affected their making and their makers. For many listeners, however, it isn’t instinctual to approach music in this way. And it’s for good reason that this is the case — the personal, emotional response to music often overwhelms other ways of listening. This lesson is our effort to share some methods for bridging out from the personal/emotional response in order to contextualize songs and encourage critical thinking, hopefully giving teachers and students a sense for the rich possibilities around bringing popular music into the classroom."

Secret Teacher: teaching children without play was soul-destroying | Teacher Network | The Guardian
"In 2013, 130 early education experts, including David Whitebread from the University of Cambridge, signed a public letter in support of delaying formal schooling until the age of seven (in line with other European countries such as Finland, Denmark and Sweden). Whitebread describes play as “one of the highest achievements of the human specie” and has expressed concern about a rising “earlier the better” trend in early education.

Much has been achieved in reception since the revised early years foundation stage (EYFS) framework was introduced in 2012. EYFS now provides a fantastic start to learning for children in this country, provided it is executed by teachers who truly believe in the value of play-based learning. The curriculum is led completely by the children and they can spend as little or as long on a task as they want; they choose their resources, the setting, the methods. To a child, play is serious work and the motivation to learn is intrinsic. A skilful early-years practitioner will know when to intervene to guide and extend the opportunity to learn, but also when to step back and let it unfold naturally.

Unfortunately for the children thriving in this setting, it ends at age five, when they’re forced to give up their natural instincts to play in favour of formal lessons. That’s before children in Norway, for example, have even started at school. "

Generative Typesetting Workshop
In this workshop, we will be using a new tool to create typographic compositions: code. Unlike with traditional typesetting processes, where you might be given a text or specific format before starting the design process, we will be exploring the unknowns of digital contexts.

Mathematical ability not limited by gender. | npj Science of Learning Community
Contrary to the prediction that sexes differ in mathematical abilities, we find that they do not - in infancy and early childhood girls and boys do not differ in their abilities to represent numerical set sizes, to learn to count and to acquire very basic math concepts. In fact, overall they are statistically equivalent.
Some prior research suggests that boys and girls might experience differences in mathematics training during childhood and that girls might be disadvantaged. One way we can improve numeracy and literary performance is to make sure that children are getting the same exposure, encouragement and training in mathematics regardless of gender, socioeconomic status or any other social and cultural factors that might influence children’s learning.

How to leverage prior knowledge to enhance learning. | npj Science of Learning Community
Both students and teachers often think that once something is learned it is set in stone in the brain and they don’t have to pay attention to it anymore. However, it actually makes sense to retrieve previously learned information often (a process known as retrieval practice). We have also shown that retrieval aids knowledge building when linking old to new information.
