In this Webinar

Teachers can guide students in how best to use their most powerful tool. If we want to empower students, we must show them how they can be in control of their own cognitive and emotional strength and success. Teaching students how the brain operates is a huge step. Students of all ages can learn how neuroplasticity works, how to use conscious strategies to reduce the stressors that reduce focus and memory, and what conditions are best for their own best learning and studying.
