Teachers, do you ever ask yourselves "How does the brain learn?" "How can I design my lessons to facilitate powerful learning opportunities?" "Does the use of technology change how we learn?" "How can we incorporate technology to support what we know about learning?"
Science of Teaching and Learning will take educators on a journey through the neuro and cognitive sciences to examine brain function, neroplasticity, and how the learning process occurs. Research into these subjects greatly contributes to the fundamental understanding of learning and design of effective instruction. Join us to learn what is fact (based on scientific research) or fiction (debunked theories) when it comes to the very fabric of learning.
Educators will explore the differences between brain-based learning and brain-targeted teaching, while navigating the learning cycle and defining how technology fits in. The five conditions for learning will be discussed in the context of how teachers can support optimal learning, while utilizing a variety of tools and strategies for instruction, assessment, and learner engagement.
