Okayama JALT:

Connecting the Brain to Teaching

Date: Saturday, April 16th, 2011 Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Jason Lowes

Description:
Have you ever looked at your students and wondered, "What's going on in there?" If you have, this presentation may help you answer that question, for it will explore some recent findings in neuroscience, and consider how this contemporary knowledge can be brought into the classroom to facilitate learning. Following a quick overview of brain anatomy, we will examine the mechanisms of memory and the learning theory of connectionism. In addition to the technical and theoretical aspects of the subject matter, we will also spend time investigating the practical implications of brain related research through group discussions and experimentation.
