Improving Learning Capacity for Students

Those who follow my blog closely, know my advocacy for listening to and learning from Neuroscientists.  We cannot do as much as we can for our school kids and their performance without also building their capacity for learning.  This involves improving and increasing students’ memory, processing, attention, and sequencing capacity.  Good teaching positively affects these.  Computer-driven programs well-designed (such as ST Math, Fast ForWord, and Reading Assistant) work these areas for kids more efficiently and amplify the effects of good teaching.  There is a terrific new article in District Administrator on this important area of Science.  Link is: http://www.districtadministration.com/article/neuroscience-schools

I am hosting an event in downtown Chicago on Neuroscience influences on morning of December 7, 2012.  Some national experts in Neuroscience will conduct the session, compliments of Scientific Learning.  Seats are limited.  If you’d like to attend, reach me via email jw@atlanticresearchpartners.org or contact Natalie at nohara@scilearn.com

Check out the article, and also the work of Eric Jensen on how Neuroscience interventions can boost what we do for kids.
