Cognitive Psychology investigates fundamental cognitive processes such as how we perceive and pay attention to the world around us, how we remember and forget, and how we think and solve problems. Understanding these processes is vital for teaching and learning and, as a consequence, research from cognitive psychology has found its way into education. Our work with the Learning Scientists highlights learning strategies from cognitive psychology that are most effective in education. In this keynote we will take a contemporary approach to applying cognitive psychology to education, addressing how learning strategies can be applied to create a more inclusive classroom in both in-person and online settings. We will review effective learning strategies and discuss how they can be best implemented by asking: Do they work for everyone? Do they work everywhere?
