Learning & The Brain Conference: discount for SharpBrains readers
Posted Oct 25 2007 12:00am
Context: Last February we had the chance to attend a great conference on how brain research is influencing education. Highly recommended. Caroline wrote , summarized as “It was a fascinating mix of neuroscientists and educators talking with and listening to each other. Some topics were meant to be applied today, but many were food for thought – insight on where science and education are headed and how they influence each other”. See some of our take-aways below.
