The brain and learning: what do teaching professionals really need to know? LIMITED
Limited Capacity seats available

We hear a lot about the brain and learning these days. How can we know what is true and how can we know what is useful to primary science education? This interactive talk will give an overview of what is known, how it is known, and what is still a mystery! We value science, but in education we value other things too - how can we use the science of learning in ways that we think are right? A primary science educator and neuropsychologist bring their perspectives together to discuss these issues with the audience.
