Conference Overview: Teaching Students How to Learn
Today’s knowledge-based, rapidly changing world requires that students have deeper knowledge, skills, and competencies in order to succeed at work and life. But how should schools promote deeper learning skills, such as problem solving, critical thinking, reasoning, inquiry, reflection, retention,transfer, and mastery? Fortunately, insights from the brain and learning sciences are providing the most effective ways to teach and learn these skills. Join us for our 20th anniversary event to explore the science of learning and deeper learning. Discover how the brain learns, ways to teach students how to learn, and strategies to make learning stick. Learn new ways to improve student reflection, reasoning, and critical thinking skills; engage deeper learning and reading through science, digital tools, gaming, projects, and problem-based learning; and deepen content knowledge and mastery by boosting retrieval practice and memory retention.
