Abstract: This paper presents a comprehensive research and systematic analysis on the empirical research literature of learning sciences in the mainland of China in the past five years. It points out that learning sciences have attracted researchers of cognitive science, educational psychology, educational technology and other disciplines in the past few years. Scholars have made great achievements in the research of basic learning mechanism, learning environment design and learning analysis technology, and also made a keen exploration in terms of research methods. However, the depth and breadth of research and the understanding of learning sciences need to be strengthened. The research work of learning sciences needs to be comprehensively promoted in the future, especially the research topics, such as study on neural mechanism: influencing factors and cultivation strategies of cognition and learning for infants, children and adolescents; dialogue analysis, teacher-student interaction, learning evaluation and other learning analysis research based on classroom teaching; study on cognitive tool design based on simulation, emulation, game, VR/AR and other new technologies; study on intelligent learning environment design; and study on online learning and hybrid learning; etc.

Key words: learning science, learning technology, learning analytics, empirical research, literature review
