Understanding Brain Functioning and How it Applies in the Classroom
This workshop will review three key aspects of learning. First, we will identify which brain networks are involved in learning. In part, we will review brain plasticity and the role of emotions in learning. We will then discuss what can be done within the classroom environment to enhance activation of these networks. Lastly we will discuss factors that can hinder learning such as mindset, anxiety and attention. The goal of this workshop is to provide teachers with relevant neuroscience information to help create a classroom environment that is conducive to learning and the brain.
