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

dyslexia webinar neuron learning

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.

Webinar: Breaking Bad: Tackling Behaviour Problems at the Core

Introduction:

We often see behaviours at school that are detrimental to both the students exhibiting the behaviour and those around them. Many times, inattention, hyperactivity, impulsivity and even aggression may be more than a student demonstrating that he or she is bored, acting out or seeking attention.
These behavioural issues interfere with student learning because they are disruptive or consume a lot of class time, but have we truly considered what foundational issues are behind those actions?
What if we could address the actual core problems causing those behaviours rather than just continually dealing with the symptoms?

Reading Assistant – Getting Started

 

Innovative Online Guided Reading Tool

Reading Assistant is an innovative online guided reading tool that provides intensive reading practice. Learners use the tool to read developmentally appropriate texts both silently and aloud. What makes Reading Assistant such an innovative reading practice tool is its use of patented technology that listens as each word is read aloud and delivers immediate support whenever a learner struggles with or mispronounces a word — reinforcing newly learned reading skills, vocabulary, and fluency.

What Reading Assistant Does

Provides Guided Reading Support to More Students

Reading Assistant uses patented speech recognition technology to deliver real-time corrective guided reading feedback, enabling learners to self-correct as they are reading aloud.

Improves Both Silent Reading and Oral Reading Skills

Unlike other digital reading practice resources that only allow learners to record themselves reading aloud, Reading Assistant actually listens and helps learners whenever they struggle or mispronounce a word — it’s like having a personal guided reading tutor available 24/7!

Reading Assistant Saves Teachers Time

Automatic calculation of words correct per minute (WCPM), and actionable comprehension and vocabulary reports make it easy for teachers to track learners’ reading levels, and specific areas of strength and weakness.

Pre-teaches Academic Vocabulary

Built-in Word Wall activities pre-teach academic vocabulary, activate prior knowledge, and provide pronunciations for new words before learners begin each e-book passage.

Reading Assistant Reaches the Reluctant Reader

Reading Assistant provides reading selections for a variety of interests and reading levels, plus frequent comprehension checks, to keep learners motivated and focused on reading for meaning as well as building reading fluency.

Easy-to-Use Reports and Indicators

 

Reading Assistant provides implementation and performance reporting at the district, group, and student level to support and improve data-driven decision making. Graphical depictions show usage, performance, reading level trends, and student proficiency levels.

Evidence Based Education

Fast ForWord language and reading intervention allows educators, parents, and clinical providers to easily track a learner’s progress. MySciLEARN reports and Reading Progress Indicator assessments ensure every learner receives the appropriate guidance and support necessary to become a better reader and better student.

 

Reading Progress Indicator (RPI)is an online assessment that rapidly measures the effects of the Fast ForWord family of products by evaluating reading performance as students progress from product to product.

RPI Combines with MyScilearn to Provide Valuable Information for Teachers on Each Student

Reading Progress Indicator (RPI) assessments correlate to international recognised normed assessments and help indicate how learners are responding to Fast ForWord.

Quickly assesses four key skill areas: phonemic awareness, decoding, vocabulary, and comprehension.

Automatically scores assessment and report results for parents, teachers, and administrators.

Provides accurate progress information that correlates to nationally recognised normed assessments.

Automatically generates assessment reports for individuals, groups and schools.

Reading Progress Indicator (RPI) was developed by Scientific Learning and Bookette Software Company (now Pearson plc).

Established psychometric procedures were used to produce a test that is valid, reliable, and unbiased, and to generate nationally-representative norms.

Reading Progress Indicator provides four assessment levels based on the grade entered for the student:

K-1,
K 2-3,
K 4-6, and
K 7-13+

(Pre-Kindergarten students are not eligible for the assessments).
The assessments are not timed.
