It was great to see you Donna and to hear about your time in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Powerful stuff!

Marcus Conyers and I just got back from BrainSMART presentations in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, UAE. There we met more excellent teachers and administrators interested in brain-based teaching and learning! Today it is my pleasure to be meeting up with the wonderful Diane Dahl at NAEYC! Excited:) There we will be sharing information about the brain based teaching programs at NSU.

This past week we were pleased to be at The Aspen Institute attending a conference sponsored by The New York Academy of Sciences and the The Aspen Brain Forum Foundation. The purpose of the conference was to discuss current scientific research and implications for education. Our first day started with a lovely hike along the riverside and through the aspens. The weather was sunny and brisk...perfect fall days for this two day conference! We were delighted to meet up with a graduate and a current student from our NSU/BrainSMART programs! When we arrive in our office Tuesday we have lots to do to highlight this exciting new research that supports our programs in teacher education and graduate studies! For example, Marcus and I heard Daphne Bavelier - University of Geneva speak of her research on learning and action video game play, Silvia Bunge - University of California Berkeley present on reasoning training and brain connectivity, and Clancy Blair - New York University discussing executive function and school readiness. We lunched with John Mighton and enjoyed hearing of his research about nurturing math with every child. There is far to much to write about in one posting. Over the course of time, I'll be sharing more here as well as on my blog.

Still time to participate in letting your views be known through my study

It is not too late in get in on this study. I am looking to interview teachers and principals on how effective they believe they are in influencing student learning while operating under Federal and State mandates and district initiatives.

If you…See More
