Time and Place: 12 pm on stage A
Session Overview: Advances in brain research have moved educators closer than ever before to teaching math the way the brain actually learns. Journey with MIND Research Institute’s Vice President of Content Creation, Nigel Nisbet, to uncover a neuroscience-based, unifying theory that promotes deeper engagement, deeper thought and deeper learning. He’ll share insights on how our brains learn and how to create active classroom environments that foster student success in the 21st century.
