Time is a precious commodity, so why wouldn’t we use science-driven insights to make the most of the limited time available for student learning? Attend this edWebinar to learn all about the hippocampus and its role in the perception-action cycle, a scientific approach to looking at how the brain learns. You’ll also hear how this type of learning isn’t superficial or temporary, but develops lasting conceptual understanding that builds upon itself, accelerating learning.

Experience the process for yourself in its application to learning mathematics—a shift in pedagogy (not just new technology) that empowers your teachers and students to fully utilize a powerful tool available to us: our brains.

This edWebinar will be of interest to PreK-8 math leaders and coaches, school and district leaders, and education technology leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
