Event Details

Recent neuro-scientific research shows that the brain behaves less like a "hard-wired" computer, more like a dense forest in which pathways appear through repeated use and disappear through neglect. The implications for education of this paradigm shift are huge, especially since the cortical functions of children and young adults do not fully develop until they reach their early 20's.
In this ground-breaking talk, Douglas Gerwin, Ph.D. explores how Waldorf education helps children and adolescents unfold their powers of intelligence through a 12-year curriculum designed to nourish their developmental needs from pre-school through the high school years.
