A New Way to Learn

In Collaboration with MIT

At the cutting edge of teacher preparation, the WW Academy’s collaboration with MIT and its Cambridge location make the Academy a true intellectual destination for those who want to think differently about education and the future of teaching. The WW Academy is working with MIT researchers and learning scientists to provide teacher candidates the very best when it comes to technology, gaming, and other components often attributed to the cognitive sciences. MIT will also analyze the program, so that findings and innovations can be shared with other higher education and teacher preparation institutions.


"Hands-on, problem-focused, curiosity-driven learning is squarely at the heart of an MIT education, and it will be central to MIT’s work with the Woodrow Wilson Foundation. Together, we will combine MIT’s ‘mind and hand’ approach to learning with recent breakthroughs in cognitive science and digital learning to inform the Woodrow Wilson Foundation’s efforts to develop and support excellent STEM teachers and school leaders."
-L. Rafael Reif, MIT President
