Time: 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon
Description:
The brain is comprised of billions of neurons (brain cells) connected with trillions of “synaptic” connections between the neurons. Recent research indicates that learning happens in a human brain when a group of neurons are able to form a network passing information between them in the form of electro-chemical signals. Brain-based learning has the potential to enable curriculum content to be adapted to individualized learning pathways ensuring an increase in learning effectiveness and efficiency as well as improvement in student engagement and evaluation measurements.

  4. Aisha, my apologies… You have to understand I get several dozen complimentary comments – without much substance – left on my blog each day and the vast majority are from bots that are only interested in the active link they leave behind. Thanks for your interest in this blog.
