Is neuroscience really impacting education, or is it just another educational fad? Listen to Dr Jared Cooney-Horvath, Educational Neuroscientist as he unpacks this complex issue.
Despite decades of effort trying to marry scientific insights with classroom practice, very little (if anything) has changed in education. During this compelling and interactive session, we will explore why laboratory research has not impacted teacher practice, consider what is required in order to translate research for the classroom, and dive deeply into several concrete examples of this process in action. Enlightening and empowering, this session puts the teacher back in the driver’s seat!
