The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.”

Webinar –  Future learning is faster than you think:

Elite student learning in 2030

Peering into the research journals of today, let’s talk about where the future of student Listening, Reading, Writing, Speaking is headed. Advances in the understanding of how our brains learn has led to the development of methodologies and technological tools that allow the learning process in the brain to be accelerated. The research now shows that we can more than double learning speed, accelerate foreign language learning and increase team creativity.

We’ll discuss the changing paradigm of human learning where elite learners exercise daily, average 8 hours of sleep and obsess about the right learning diet. Let’s view the classroom of 2030, the average student demographics and changes to the pedagogy presented in school curriculums.

Attend this webinar to:

  • Attend this webinar to:

    • Understand the difference between the “what” and the “how” of learning in the brain 
    • Learn about the latest advances in accelerated learning, already in use by elite military forces and athletes  
    • Take home research-based strategies to help your learners build stronger learning capabilities 

Here are the 3 main takeaways:
1. Our brain changes according to experience and we call this neuroplasticity. There are two great periods of brain change, namely the early childhood period and adolescence period. Positive change is stimulated by enriched environments, participation in learning and lifestyle factors, but inhibited by stress and isloation.
2. Lifestyle factors like sleepdiet and exercises can have an enormous impact on our brain performance and are actively managed in the world of elite athletes and professionals. A healthy brain-friendly diet can add 4.7 years to our cognitive health. Sufficient and good quality sleep consolidates learning and aids memory retention. Both physical and cognitive exercises can boost brain health and performance.   
3. The use of neurotechnology such as Fast ForWord that utilises accoustically-modified sounds to improve students’ language and reading processing, as well as neurofeedback technology that can track and improve students’ engagement and learning in real-time in the classroom, are examples of neuroscientific tools that are able to accelerate students’ learning.

Suitable for: School administrators, teachers, counsellors, psychologists, allied educators, therapists, parents or anyone interested in the learning brain.
