Whether teaching and learning on a school’s campus or from a distance, one thing will not change, the brain is the organ of learning. Imagine then if teachers and school leaders knew more about the most promising research and strategies in Mind, Brain, and Education (MBE) as they design synchronous and asynchronous learning experiences that support the academic, social, and emotional wellbeing of all students. This workshop will use the Science of Learning to teach the Science of Learning. Participant will explore research and strategies on topics such as sleep, cognitive load, learning spaces, meta-cognition, feedback, memory, and executive function in the context of their school and with their students. Participants will leave this workshop with “next day” MBE research-informed strategies as well as resources and frameworks that can be used to navigate the current virtual and future blended school experiences for the adult and student brain.
