Webinars Discuss How the Brain Learns

Scientific Learning has announced a Webinar series titled “The New Science of Learning: Change the Way Students Learn.” Featuring renowned neuroscientists, authors and educators, the series is designed to help K-12 educators understand how the science of “brain plasticity” can inform classroom instruction and empower children to gain success in learning and in life.

“The New Science of Learning” series begins Thursday, Sept. 24 with a session titled, “Change the Way Students Learn,” presented by Dr. William Jenkins, an expert in learning-based brain plasticity, behavioral algorithms, psychophysical methods, multimedia and Internet technology.

“Our understanding of how people’s brains work and learn has improved vastly through neuroscience and cognitive science research. This research is at the core of the Fast ForWord family of products, and it holds the potential of helping millions of students overcome obstacles to their success,” says Andy Myers, president and CEO of Scientific Learning. “By combining scientific expertise with appropriate, effective technologies, Scientific Learning is leading the way to a pedagogical change in support of improved student learning. We are pleased to bring this information to educators through the webinar series and its esteemed speakers.”

The Webinars are free of charge, but pre-registration is required. For more information on dates and times or to register, visit http://info.scilearn.com/forms/Webinars2009.
