Motivate Your Students with Social-Emotional Learning


Neuroscience of Education:

The Positive Student Impact of Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) and Neuronscience-Based Approaches 

Educators have a powerful effect on the social-emotional learning development of children. New research points to SEL approaches that maximize educators’ positive impact on students affected by Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). Build a positive impact on Students
This presentation will review the new research on the effects of ACEs and environmental stress on brain maturation and learning, then turn attention to the research on Positive Childhood Experiences (PCEs) associated with positive educational outcomes.
The webinar will conclude with suggestions for the use of individualized instruction combined with technology to build academic skills as well as the confidence to achieve in all students.

Social Emotional Learning Key Factor

Educators play a vital role in changing and building the Brain.

  • The human brain is an experience – dependent organ
  • It is the main goal of Teachers to build and change students brain
  • Educators create positive childhood experience
  • Children can achieve even those who begin at a disadvantaged level. With the use of individualized instruction combined with technology to build academic skills as well as the confidence to achieve in all students.

43:50 The role of Neuroscience Technology

Many scientists think that the cause of dyslexia is a dysfunctional processing of auditory speech. However, even today, the reasons for these alterations in speech processing remain unknown. Children with dyslexia have considerable problems at school and are under great emotional pressure both at school and in the family. Adults with dyslexia frequently feel ashamed of their weakness and try to hide it from their social and professional environment.

  • First, dyslexia is neurological—it is a condition that stems from underlying differences in the brain, which is not the child’s fault. That means that the most effective dyslexia interventions will strengthen these specific underdeveloped areas of the brain.
  • Second, dyslexia is a problem of auditory processing. Successful interventions will train the brain to improve auditory processing speed that will in turn improve reading skills.

Preliminary Notes Only

And then sequencing is important especially in reading. You have to know what came first in a story, what came second in a story, what came third, if you are going to write something, you have to write it in some kind of an order. But also, sequencing is just important for learning all sorts of content tasks, whether its mathematics which requires sequencing or science or history. And so these are some capacities that we’ve learned you can train. And when you train those capacities especially if you train them as embedded in content tasks, you can drive the brain through these very repetitive experiences to be much better at learning.

And so that is where the Fast ForWord programs come in. The first thing I want to emphasize is that Fast ForWord programs train attention skills and by training that they enable students to be able to attend to especially auditory signal because that is what a student has to be able to attend to. They have to attend to a teacher talking especially in the early grades. And the attention training is embedded in other kinds of tasks, like reading tasks.

Evidence of Effectiveness – Deep Diving into MySciLEARN Reports


Deep Diving into MyScilearn Reports
Is about deep data and how we are applying Smart Technology to our products for you to understand your students’ progress better.
It is a practical session directed at educators who use Fast ForWord programs and a good overview for those of you who want to see the power of data analysis in teaching.

You should learn:

(1) The Key Indicators to monitor for student success.

(2) The identification of each student’s individual needs.

(3) How to save valuable time by automating the preparation and communication of reports!

What if you could reach every struggling reader at your school with exactly the skills they need at just the right time? What if these students started to improve quickly, were self-motivated, and worked more independently?
Learn how the new version of the evidence-based Fast ForWord reading intervention program will bring a dramatic difference to your students this year, and provide you with one option to meet the needs of multiple student subgroups.

Scientific Learning

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.

 

MySciLEARN Reports

 

MySciLEARN reports are online data analysis and reporting tools tha

[spacer t track individual learner, classroom, school, and district level performance.

  • Automatically analyzes individual and group learning progress, including diagnostic and prescriptive information, displayed in graphs and tables
  • Offers timely and specific intervention guidance, providing recommendations to maximize the impact of classroom reading instruction and the effectiveness of the Fast ForWord reading intervention program
  • Provides future forecasting with insights into the potential effects Fast ForWord can have on a school district’s performance in as little as 1 year.

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.
