Learning and the Brain Winter Conference: Teaching Engaged Brains

San Francisco, CA Feb 22 12:00 pm to Feb 24, 2024 3:30 am - Pacific Time (US & Canada)

Price: more than $250


As a result of the pandemic, stress, and digital distractions, students are less engaged, focused, and motivated than prior to COVID. A 2021 EdWeek Research Center survey found that student motivation and morale are significantly lower than they were prior to the pandemic with 87% of teachers reporting less student motivation. A 2023 Gradient Learning Poll found 80% of teachers concerned about their students’ engagement in the classroom. Research by Gloria Mark at the University of California, Irvine, has found that our focused attention spans have dropped from an average of 2.5 minutes 20 years ago to only 47 seconds by 2021. 

This interdisciplinary conference will bring neuroscientists, psychologists, researchers, and educators together to explore the science of attention, focus, and motivation and the impacts of stress, exercise, mindfulness, and technology on student engagement. Discover ways to increase student motivation and focus, reduce digital distractions, and boost learning.
