The Brain in the Classroom: Uniting Research and Practice

with Jared Horvath, Neuroscientist, Educator & Author  

Date: Friday, March 3, 2023 * 9:30 am - 3:00 pm
Location: ISACS Classroom, Downtown Chicago

 

REGISTRATION IS OPEN! 


 THIS WORKSHOP IS FOR ISACS MEMBER SCHOOLS ONLY.
Each participant must register themselves individually for the Workshop. There is no group discount.
Each participant MUST have a contact record in the system prior to registration.
Please see "Registration Tips" located at the bottom for more information.

Spend a day with an acclaimed neuroscientist, educator, and author of the best-selling book Stop Talking, Start Influencing: 12 Insights from Brain Science to Make Your Message Stick to explore how human beings learn. Learn about the principles that can shine a light on more traditional classroom practices while we consider how these principles can be adapted to impact teaching and learning practices. We will explore the often counter-intuitive foundations of thinking, the power of stories to drive perception, the role errors play in comprehension, and consider how these three concepts tie together to drive student learning.

Leave with brain-based strategies you can immediately implement, a deeper understanding of the only truly future-proof skill research has found, and essential information regarding the 21st Century Skills movement in education. 

This workshop is for all teachers, grades K-12.
