Educational research has always informed educational practices. Recently, research results in neuroscience and cognitive science have begun to yield information that also has the potential to inform classroom practices and improve outcomes for learners.
The American Education Week 2012 presentations focus on this frontier, examining how brain-based research and education research intersect with or inform each other, and how both inform educational practices. In a series of panel discussions, educational and neuroscience researchers will address:
- neuroscience and memory development in early childhood;
- neuroscience and math;
- neuroscience and reading; and
- neuroscience, social-emotional skills (empathy, cooperation, mental focus, and self-regulation) and educational gaming.
