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.
- 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.
