Cognitive research findings are being applied to numerous practice areas, including teaching. The concept of “neuroplasticity”—the brain’s ability to form new neural connections throughout one’s life–has been important for understanding and combating the effects of aging and stroke. It is now gaining importance for understanding and improving the educational process. This program will review the current status of neuroeducational research, addressing cognitive abilities such as attention, memory, flexibility, sequencing, and inhibition. It will also examine effective applications of technology to strengthen the student-oriented educational process, particularly the design, implementation, and support of learning activities, environments, and assessments.
This program is sponsored by the DET-SIS.
