Supporting Diverse Learners in Literacy
In this webinar, we will discuss the concept of cognitive load and neuroscience-based approaches to strengthening students’ capacity for cognitive load as well as strategies to lighten cognitive load in the process of learning to read.
Your Brain’s Memory Back-Up System
Strong memories involve groups or teams or networks of neurons that fire together. While neuroscientists have long said that "neurons that fire together wire together," recent reesarch at Cal Tech shows how repeated exposure to something recruits multiple neurons into the memory system, creating built-in redundancy.
Cognitive Skills Are the Foundation for Learning
Cognitive skills are the foundation for learning. This short video explains.
Ten Ways to Make Learning More Efficient and Effective
Just in time for Back-to-School, we look at what the science of learning tells us about some of the best ways to help our children (and ourselves) be the most efficient and effective learners they can be.
Five Skills That Would Make Teaching Easier (and More Effective)
In this webinar, we will explore five gaps in the knowledge and skill base of most teachers and how those impact their effectiveness and student learning.
BrainWare Learning-Mindprint Test Prep Workshop
In this workshop, Nancy Weinstein, CEO of Mindprint Learning, and Betsy Hill, President of BrainWare Learning, will walk through the new Mindprint Test Prep Profile -- a new profile that can be generated from a student's cognitive assessment results, to help prepare students for college admissions or other high-stakes tests.
Stop Running Against the Wind
Most of us make learning harder than it needs to be. Why? Because we don’t really understand what it takes to learn something. This webinar will focus on how students at any age can become more efficient and effective learners by understanding how to learn in harmony with their brain.
Do Resource Teachers Have the Right Resources?
The system that is supposed to help students get supports often doesn’t work because the goal changes from having a real impact to checking off boxes and focusing on compliance. What is your experience with resource teachers having the right resources?
Demanding, Rewarding Tasks Create Strong Memories
Recent research looked at how the difficulty of the task and the size of the reward impacted the strength of the memory and the consolidation process. The size of the reward, not surprisingly, influences the strength of the memory, but just as important is the level of challenge of the task.
Why Teachers and Students Need to Learn about Their Brains in the Digital Age
For good and bad, technology changes our brains. But then again, so does every experience we have. So what are our brains doing and becoming in the digital age?
