We hope to see many of our students, colleagues, and friends at the upcoming Global Leadership Conference at the Disney Contemporary Hotel in Orlando. Our session is called ... Leading the Way: Putting Mind, Brain, and Education Research into Practice
In our session you will discover how key findings from the fields of education, mind, and brain provide hope, promise, and practical implications for schooling today. We will share research findings based on studies of graduates of these exciting studies. Participants will learn about new discoveries regarding brain plasticity that support adult and student learning, the power of adopting and modeling practical optimism, and strategies for increasing attention, memory, and finishing tasks. These findings on the impact of MBE studies are based on several datasets that have been shared in recent months at the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, American Educational Research Association (INET), National Association of Elementary School Principals, and the International Educational Organization’s symposia in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Research and applications shared in this session will also be included in an teacher education textbook currently in development with Teachers College Press and an article in The Reading Teacher journal, both of which are tentatively set for publication in 2013.
