Pamela Cantor, M.D. on The Future of Smart Podcast

Turnaround for Children Founder and Senior Science Advisor Pamela Cantor, M.D. was a guest on The Future of Smart podcast, presented by Grantmakers for Education.

The Future of Smart explores ideas at the intersection of education, equity, and philanthropy that “point toward a radical re-envisioning of our education system.”

In the episode, “Using Science to Imagine a New Purpose and Design for Education,” Cantor and host Dr. Ulcca Joshi Hansen discuss how important deep relationships are to setting the stage for learning and why the design of learning experiences and methods for assessment and evaluation should reflect the jagged, irregular progress of normal human development. Cantor also takes the opportunity to dispel myths about human development and growth and explains why efforts to improve education will not succeed until they acknowledge how children actually grow and learn.
