Dr Michael Nagel: Hello, Is There Anybody in There?: Understanding the Developing Brain.

Session Info:

Since the 1990s there has been more worldwide research in the neurological sciences than at any other time in history. A great deal of the research that has been done has also been applied to many other fields of study. As a result of all of this work, education has been reinvigorated with new understandings of how the brain grows and develops, the potential differences between the brains of boys and girls and how this might impact on behaviour and learning. Some of the most current research available also suggests that teachers may have to radically rethink how they engage with 21st century minds if they are truly sincere in delivering quality educational experiences and attaining quality educational outcomes. This presentation looks to uncover some of this information by focusing on contemporary research related to the brain, human development and education.

A session for teachers.

Topics:

Neurological development from early childhood to adolescence Gender differences in learning and behavior Emotional well-being Educating 21st century learners
