About the Session

"I don't know" and "I don't remember" are phrases that haunt every classroom teacher and learner. How do we create experiences that lead to better learning for all students so that they will "know" and "remember"? Over the past fifteen years, the science of learning has provided many insights into how we think.  This workshop shows you how to translate these insights into classroom practice! The body of research on how we learn provides well established principles and practices that enhance the learning outcomes for each of our students.

Practicing what we preach, you will take part in an edge-of-your-seat virtual learning experience that translates these principles to practices across multiple content areas and grade-levels. You will leave with strategies that will make learning stronger for all of your students.
