Randomised Controlled Trials (RCT) in Education

I spotted this workshop as part of the conference which is organised by the Behavioural Insights Team in the UK ( http://www.bx2015.org/#!programme/c121s). The video of the session is available here.

Education RCTs: Past, present and future
What do we really know about why some children do better at school than others? What are the world's leading education researchers currently working on? In this session, academics from the US and UK will give presentations of their work and the narrative that drives it, before considering where future efforts should be applied.
Speakers include: Todd Rogers, Simon Burgess, Anna Vignoles, Sally Sadoff

As I don't know much about Randomised Controlled Trials (RCT) in education, I googled the names to see the stuff they do. My colleague also said that they will most likely publish some video recordings of the sessions - mental note to my self, check back later!
