It was great to see you Donna and to hear about your time in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Powerful stuff!

Marcus Conyers and I just got back from BrainSMART presentations in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, UAE. There we met more excellent teachers and administrators interested in brain-based teaching and learning! Today it is my pleasure to be meeting up with the wonderful Diane Dahl at NAEYC! Excited:) There we will be sharing information about the brain based teaching programs at NSU.

This past week we were pleased to be at The Aspen Institute attending a conference sponsored by The New York Academy of Sciences and the The Aspen Brain Forum Foundation. The purpose of the conference was to discuss current scientific research and implications for education. Our first day started with a lovely hike along the riverside and through the aspens. The weather was sunny and brisk...perfect fall days for this two day conference! We were delighted to meet up with a graduate and a current student from our NSU/BrainSMART programs! When we arrive in our office Tuesday we have lots to do to highlight this exciting new research that supports our programs in teacher education and graduate studies! For example, Marcus and I heard Daphne Bavelier - University of Geneva speak of her research on learning and action video game play, Silvia Bunge - University of California Berkeley present on reasoning training and brain connectivity, and Clancy Blair - New York University discussing executive function and school readiness. We lunched with John Mighton and enjoyed hearing of his research about nurturing math with every child. There is far to much to write about in one posting. Over the course of time, I'll be sharing more here as well as on my blog.

Diane and All, Delighted to see your group on brain based teaching and look forward to connecting here! We will be sharing information about what effective teachers are doing through the use of some exciting brain based methods in Boston next week. The conference is at the International Association of Cognitive Education and Psychology. Marianne Wolf will also be presenting there about the brain and reading.

I like your rubric.  My partner teacher and I tell the kids that they need to have the word "because" in their thinking stem.  This helps them "explain" their thinking.

 

I'm so glad you're finding success with the stem!  My partner teacher came up with the idea and formulated to what we use now.

 

I also like your summary rubric as well.  I find even in Third grade they struggle with summaries.  They either give too much info or not enough.  Sometimes they focus on elements that are not really that important or they assume you know something.

 

Blessings.

Integration with The Latest Technology in Education Field

It is with certainty that we can say that the future of education is looking very bright. Today the kids are taught so many new innovations that we adults couldn't have imagined learning at school. They are also given exposure to more practical lessons. Integration with the latest technology and the accessibility to global platforms have made the industry take a whole new perspective towards imparting knowledge to students. Though the current generation is much advanced and keep up with the…See More
