Promoting Social Skills, Interactions,
and Collaborations in a Digital Age
Learning & the Brain is an internationally recognized education conference organizer that has been putting together three pivotal education conferences per year since 1999.
The round of conferences begins in Boston during the fall, followed by San Francisco in the winter and lastly, New York City completes the annual circuit in the spring, and this year is no different.
The theme of the first conference which will be held in Boston is "Reaching for Greatness: Unleash Potential, Passions, and Creative Talents in Students with Cognitive Science.” With speakers like education thought-leader Sir Ken Robinson, it’s set to be an empowering event for educators who will learn the latest in understanding human cognition, how the brain works while learning, and how to bring out the gifts and passions in learners.
The theme for the San Francisco education conference will be "Educating With Empathy Using the Science of Human Goodness to Promote Child Compassion, Cooperation, and Collaboration,” and its focus will be on helping educators to facilitate and nurture the spirit of collaboration within learners.
Lastly, the New York education conference will end this year’s program with the theme "Schooling Social Minds: Using Brain/Social Science to Teach Social Skills, Social Thinking, and Learning in the Digital Age.” This will equip educators with the tools they need to help students thrive and interact with the new social challenges they face.
This year’s Learning & the Brain conference series will help educators learn practical approaches on how to apply the science of learning in their classrooms and schools, as well as in clinical practices.
These conferences will empower educators to establish a connection between learning and cognitive sciences while receiving practical tools to fight learning disorders, and most importantly, the best available approach to developing their students’ inner talents and gifts.
Through its innovative conferences, Learning & the Brain has been providing a platform for educators from over 80 countries - including the U.S. and Canada - to share ideas on the latest research and educational advances.
The conferences promote collaboration between different disciplines such as neuroscience, education, and psychology, to name but a few. The conferences also provide a great platform to connects educators from Pre-K to the University level.
