Four Practical Ways to Bring Neuroscience to the Classroom

In this webinar, we review four brainy ways to supercharge the learning process. All four use solid neuroscience to impact learning where it happens – in our students’ brains. All four are evidence-based and supported by research. We discuss BrainWare SAFARI cognitive training software, Mindprint cognitive assessment, SkateKids cognitively based reading program and BrainsON! professional development.

Exercise Facilitates Cognitive Development

We were reminded by National Exercise with Your Child Week about the importance of exercise for cognitive development for both children and adults.
