Webinar Series: Shaping Our Brains - How Neuroplasticity Can Enrich Our Lives
Part 3: Adding the Brain to the Education Equation
Over the last several decades, neuroscience has provided massive breakthroughs in our understanding of the brain - including the extraordinary fact at we can directly influence our brains (“neuroplasticity”).
In parallel with these scientific advancements – which is also helping us better understand how the brain learns - is the recognition that an educational evolution is due. Educators have identified “21st-century skills” which push beyond the 3 Rs, and recognize that students need to be equipped to be active participants in tomorrow’s world. In fact, in an unpredictable, demanding, and fast-paced world, schools face a challenging question: How can we prepare our students for life?
A cognitive lens on this topic allows us to see the relationship between these 21st-century skills, and specific cognitive functions. This perspective offers an important and encouraging opportunity to embed cognitive programming into the daily life of all students. This presentation will examine the theoretical and practical applications of a neuro-educational model – where students participate in cognitive programming and apply their emerging cognitive strengths to their academic experiences. We look forward to having you join us.
