Featured Webinar

The Motivated Brain: Using the SEEKING System to Improve Student Attention, Engagement, and Perseverance

October 13, 2015, 3:00 p.m. ET

One of the promising frontiers of educational neuroscience lies in understanding our basic emotions. Students' brains are programmed to "seek and find," and teachers can enhance this need by planning strategically to engage the SEEKING system to maximize motivation and ultimately, learning.

Join renowned educators Gayle Gregory and Martha Kaufeldt, co-authors of the new ASCD book The Motivated Brain: Improving Student Attention, Engagement, and Perseverance, in an engaging webinar that will take you on a tour of the brain's SEEKING system and explain the learning conditions and teaching practices that encourage it to thrive. You will learn how to

  • Address classroom factors such as student stress, lack of choice opportunities, and limited play that may lower students' motivation and engagement in learning;
  • Harness the power of your students' intrinsic motivation to make learning fun, engaging, and meaningful; and
  • Activate this natural capacity in your classroom to send student motivation and engagement to greater heights than you ever have before.

When educators have opportunities to learn more about the neuroscience of learning and memory, they see immediate applications to the classroom. The more teachers understand about how brains learn naturally, the more brain-friendly techniques will become the norm and the more frequently students will become active learners and experience success.
