CREATE ENGAGING SCHOOLS OF THE FUTURE

Neuroscience and technology are merging to transform schools, eliminating rows of desks, teacher-centered instruction, and bored students. The learning sciences, including cognitive neuroscience, are merging with teaching and technology for evidence-based curriculum and assessments; with virtual reality games to improve student engagement and learning experiences; with robotics to teach coding and create future ready students; and with gaming, makerspaces, and design thinking to transform classrooms into engaging, collaborative, learning spaces.

Find out how you can transform your school, classroom, and curriculum for the future and increase engagement by merging neuroscience, virtual reality, robotics, makerspaces, and classroom redesign.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES 

You will gain knowledge about:

  • Using robotics to teach STEM, coding, and 21st Century skills
  • Create engaging spaces, schools, curricula, and classrooms
  • How virtual reality improves empathy, learning, and engagement
  • Using evidence-based research with teaching, technology, and testing
  • Teaching reading, writing, and language arts with gaming and making
  • Rethinking times, schedules, structures, spaces, learning and leadership
  • Incorporating ideas from "hacking” and “flipping” to change education
  • How physical and virtual environments affect brains and achievement
  • Engaging students by redesigning learning, maker, and virtual spaces
  • Promoting empathy and changing behaviors with virtual experiences
  • Effects of job automation and ways to prepare future ready students
  • Rethinking teachers' roles, grades, assessments, and homework
