Webinar – Adding Neuroscience to Education – Can it Really Help?

Introduction:

You are ready to teach your students. But how can you help your students become better learners? Whether the subject is maths, science, history or English langauge skills all students need to be effective learners.
 
Now you can help your students absorb your teaching more effectively

Including neuroscience in education has been a popular topic in recent years but some people still have questions and would like to learn more about its usefulness and how it works.

You’ll learn:-

  • The 4 cognitive skills all learners need to have to learn effectively and optimally.
  • The FAST formula to make sure you hit the right levels of participation, to personalise the learning experience and build in motivation and blending of skills.
  • What technology can do to help you supplement your classroom instruction
  • The latest research into neuroscience and learning
  • And lots more in this new webinar.

What science says about why certain children struggle with language and reading, and others don’t — there are hidden factors at play.

THE ROLE OF TECHNOLOGY

Well-designed neuroscience technologies can address foundational cognitive skills essential to academic success and
promote life skills (executive functions)

NO MORE BAND-AIDS ON READING PROBLEMS

Fast ForWord uses a new 3-step process for fast reading results:


1. PREPARE the foundation for reading

• Targets missing skills and addresses weaknesses that other programs and methods don’t
(memory, attention, processing speed, listening accuracy, etc.)


2. PRACTICE language and reading skills

• Your child receives 1000s of personalized practice opportunities – this is more intensive
than any other approach and how to get far better results
• Adjusts to every click of the mouse or touch on an iPad
• Keeps your child at 80% success, 20% challenge


3. REINFORCE new reading skills

• As your child reads aloud, the Reading Assistant program listens and provides corrective
reading feedback. This real-world reading reinforces newly learned skills and rapidly builds
fluency and comprehension.
