ISR Blogger Dives into Child Development Case Study

It's easy for a research reporter to get buried in the technical details of education science and miss out on exploring the real-life implications of all those lab findings.

After more than a year and a half covering studies from language acquisition to some of the more unusual benefits of parent involvement, I've decided to to take a more embedded approach—what you might call a single case study—to education research:

On December 26, 2011, my husband Dan and I welcomed our first child, Brenden—a slightly belated Christmas present.

I seriously doubt I will go as gonzo in-depth as the lead researcher at the Human Speechome Project, but I am looking forward to watching my own little one learn about the world. I'll be out of the office until mid-April, though I'll still be popping in from time to time when a study catches my (admittedly bloodshot) eye.

In the mean time, keep a watch here for guest blogs on top education research news.
