Teaching Self-Aware Minds:
Using Brain Science to Boost Social and Emotional Skills
February 13-15, 2014
At the Fairmont San Francisco Hotel in San Francisco, CA

THIS EVENT HAS PASSED. Please click the conferences link in the navigation to see our upcoming events.

Cognitive and Social Neuroscience research has found that social-emotional skills, such as self-awareness, self-regulation and resilience, are often more important than IQ for academic and later life success. Yet, many students today lack these necessary skills. Discover strategies for boosting self-awareness, self-control, relationships and resilience so students can succeed in a standards-based, distracted, disconnected, digital age.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES
You will gain knowledge about:

  • Ways to boost student self-control and motivation
  • Teaching a Teen “Me First” Generation in the digital age
  • Strategies for social-emotional instruction and assessment
  • Promoting student self-awareness, self-regulation and efficacy
  • How to raise resilience and success in a stressful standards age
  • Applying brain and social science to improve student learning
  • Using games and technology to improve cognitive and math skills
  • Connections between self-control, social skills and achievement
  • Linking attachment, compassion and collaboration to learning
  • Impacts of digital technology on distraction, ADHD and Autism
  • Combining Common Core, Language Arts and emotions
