Brief Program Description

With over 100 billion neurons available to be used, students do not lack the intellectual “hardware” to succeed. Yet, students that struggle often believe they lack the capacity to learn, when in fact, science tells us that they lack in connections to understand. This session invites you along on a journey to model basic principles and strategies to facilitate construction of new neural connections and build powerful webs of knowledge. We will discuss learning zones and performance zones, how to build focus skills, and how to overcome the fear of failure. We will explore century-old techniques for imprinting memory, developing language, and constructing schemas...and have fun while we are doing it!
