Implications and Applications of the Latest Brain Research for Learners and Teachers
July 16, 2015, 3:00 p.m. ET
Wouldn’t it be great to walk into a classroom full of students, and feel like you really knew how they learned?
In this interactive webinar, ASCD authors Francis Bailey and Ken Pransky will explore some classroom implications and applications of the current research on human memory and learning, drawn from their 2014 ASCD book, Memory at Work in the Classroom: Strategies to Help Underachieving Students.
They will focus on how you can harness current research about the brain and its core memory systems to become a learning specialist, both designing your instruction to be more in sync with how your students’ brains are working— including some concrete suggestions for practice—as well as becoming better able to troubleshoot their learning difficulties.
The presenters will share real classroom examples to illustrate aspects of human cognition relevant to teachers, with a special emphasis on the sometimes surprising role of culture in memory formation and use.
