Neuroscience of Learning Summit
In the past few years, learning scientists together with neuroscientists have made amazing discoveries about how the human brain learns. Evidence of recent methodological changes derived from brain-centric models has produced results, which are always significant, and often breathtaking. Join Dr. Timothy Kieran O’Mahony, Missy Widmann and Conn McQuinn, for a day of learning how to translate the most significant of these discoveries into practical teaching that results in powerful improvements in education for both teachers and students.
Dr. Eric Chudler, University of Washington, will introduce you to the “why of neuroscience ” with his opening keynote, “Journey Into the Brain: The Importance of Understanding Neuroscience.” The remainder of the day, you will focus on the “how of neuroscience in your classroom” with activities that will increase your capacity to use neuroscience to inform classroom practices and processes.

Learning Transformed: 8 Keys to Designing Tomorrow’s Schools, Today
With the vast education inequities that have existed for centuries, all that is known about how students learn, and the predictions regarding the world that our students will face tomorrow, using a traditional one-size-fits-all approach to teaching and learning is educational malpractice. Built on the foundation of leadership and school culture, the presenter’s redesigned learning experience fundamentally shifts the teaching and learning paradigm to one that is personal, is grounded in evidence, leverages technology, transforms the spaces in which learning occurs, helps educators grow professionally, promotes collaboration with the community, and, ultimately, ensures the sustainability of the system as a whole. Based on ASCD’s best selling book, Learning Transformed: 8 Keys to Designing Tomorrow’s Schools Today, this workshop will dissect these eight keys, which each serve as a puzzle piece for redesigning the learning experience. Join Eric Sheninger and Tom Murray to learn how to unlock tomorrow’s schools so that today’s modern learners leave ready to create new industries, find new cures, and solve world problems. You are part of the solution!
