Dr. Wendy Ostroff, Ph.D., will discuss the significance of brain development in the early years, including what happens during children’s development to wire their brains for attention, language, curiosity and memory. This interactive workshop will include opportunities for participants to reflect and respond to prompts, including stories and plans to apply the research findings, and experience playful learning, collaboration, and the uses of divergent thinking.
Wendy L. Ostroff, Ph.D., is an applied developmental and cognitive psychologist and a professor in the Hutchins School of Liberal Studies at Sonoma State University. Ostroff has been designing and teaching interdisciplinary courses in child development, learning, and education for more than 15 years. She is the author of Understanding How Young Children Learn: Bringing the Science of Child Development to the Classroom (2012 ASCD), and Cultivating Curiosity in K-12 Classrooms (2016, ASCD).
Completion of this workshop is approved for the Marin AB212 21 hour professional development requirement.
