For neuroscience to impact teaching and learning in classrooms, the most constructive way forward is to build on, and evolve where appropriate, the wealth of existing, quality educational research. Education must now combine with neuroscience and other relevant disciplines to build flexible teams of authentic co-researchers. All will value each discipline for its purpose, place and contribution and its individual insights and expertise. The result will be a powerful collective improvement of the quality of the academic and socio-emotional school experience of our students. This vision will need long term, fully funded work in classrooms.
