AIR’s Center for Integrating Education and Prevention Research (EdPrev) investigates ways to improve children’s success in school and related long-term behavioral, mental health, and social-functioning outcomes by:
- Conducting research on short- and long-term impacts of the Good Behavior Game (GBG) to build on three decades of prior studies conducted by the center and its partners.
- Researching the types of teacher professional development, coaching and district/community support that are needed to implement the GBG in a consistent, sustainable and systemic manner.
- Building partnerships with school districts, community organizations and other agencies to help bridge the gap between empirical research and practice.
- Exploring innovative ways to use technology to support larger scale implementation.
