Strong Brain Connections = Better Learning

May 25, 2017 | 10:00am-11:00am PDT

A recording of this webinar will be made available within a week of the live session.

In this webinar, Jo Boaler, Professor of Mathematics Education at Stanford University, will share the latest neuroscience findings that explain why brain connections are so important in learning.

She’ll explore ways to encourage these connections in students and she’ll provide strategies that you can immediately put to work in your classroom. Jo will demonstrate these methods by sharing classroom video from her own teaching of 6th and 7th graders.

You’ll learn strategies to encourage your students’ brain connections by:

  • Re-designing math activities
  • Adapting your conversation with students
  • Teaching open, creative mathematics

This webinar, intended for math educators of any grade level (K-16), will give you a glimpse into Jo Boaler’s Stanford University Mathematical Mindsets course.
