What does neuroscience research tell us about the human brain structure, how it processes and retrieves information and what are the most effective ways of learning?
How should this knowledge inform teaching and curriculum to include brain compatible instructions?
Dr. Pat Wolfe will be discussing “Neuroeducation” - a new scientific field which focuses on applying current understanding of the brain to learning and teaching.
She will cover brain structure and function, and how the brain processes, stores, and retrieves information. This research has important implications for teaching and learning, and Dr. Wolfe will cover specific brain-friendly strategies parents can use to help their children enhance love of learning and maximize their potential.
