Let's Learn About Our Amazing, Adaptable Brain! with AdaptED Consultants
Do you think that with practice, you could ride a backwards bike or cook brownies with goggles that make the world look upside down? The answer is yes! Neuroscientists now know that your brain, the one in each of our heads, is extremely adaptable.
In this 30-minute session we give a brief overview of the wiring of the brain, do an experiment together that demonstrates plasticity (the neuroscientist’s word for change), and discuss what initial failure means from the point of view of the pathways in our brain. (Hint: if you are learning something truly new you are expected to fail the first time!)
Not only is learning about the brain fascinating, research shows that understanding this science can inform our everyday experiences and generate motivation and passion about learning.
Registration is required. Parents and students will participate in these workshops together.
Who are adaptED Consultants? adaptED Consultants are a team of neuroscientists and educators who provide innovative and empowering educational programming. The team will help you develop your own brain-based “best practices” so that your learning community can live up to its greatest potential.
