Measuring and Developing Executive Functions

Posted on

Executive Functions are a class of cognitive skills that constitute the directive capacities of our minds. They are essential for learning and for social and emotional intelligence. They are predictive of how students do academically, how much money they will learn in their careers, how healthy they will be as adults and whether or not they will have trouble with the law. And they can be assessed and developed.

In this webinar, we will explore the core executive functions — working memory, inhibitory control, and cognitive flexibility — understanding what they are and how they relate to both academic and social and emotional learning. We will show how executive functions can be measured using the Mindprint Cognitive Assessment and how they can be developed using BrainWare SAFARI cognitive training software.

After you have watched this webinar, you can request a Certificate of Participation for Professional Development purposes.
