Remote Learning: Making a Virtue of Necessity

Emergency remote learning was an unexpected necessity this spring, but among the challenges it posed lay powerful potential benefits. As back-to-school preparations include planning for remote learning possibly continuing in the 2020-2021 school year, apply lessons learned about remote education to ensure academic achievement this fall. This webinar will go over the challenges of remote learning, and educators will share what proved successful in overcoming these challenges to guide other educators' remote learning plans.

Upending the COVID Slide with Neuroscience

Research on summer learning loss has revealed the potentially devastating impact of COVID-19-induced school closures on student academic achievement. But there is some positive news. In a new book entitled How the Brain Learns, neuroscientist Stanislas Dehaene reviews four pillars of learning that teachers can incorporate to accelerate student learning, both through remote instruction and in the classroom. These pillars of learning also provide a guideline for selecting educational technology that can help override the COVID slide. This webinar reviews the research on how the brain learns with examples of instructional practices as well as technology consistent with Dehaene’s four pillars of learning.

Let’s Focus: Developing Executive Function from Kindergarten through High School

How do educators reach students who cannot focus in the classroom? Educators often think the ability to focus is related to motivation, that when a student “wants to listen,” she will. Educational scientists now understand attention is not a desire, but a skill: it is a self-regulatory “executive function,” related to goal-setting, organization, planning, and short-term memory. Join Dr. Martha Burns to learn more about executive functions, how teachers can build these skills through classroom activities, and how to augment student skills with technology when necessary.

The Positive Student Impact of Social-Emotional Learning and Neuroscience-Based Approaches

Educators have a powerful effect on the social-emotional development of children. New research points to SEL approaches that maximize educators’ positive impact on students affected by Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). This presentation will review the new research on the effects of ACEs and environmental stress on brain maturation and learning, then turn attention to the research on Positive Childhood Experiences (PCEs) associated with positive educational outcomes. The webinar will conclude with suggestions for the use of individualized instruction combined with technology to build academic skills as well as the confidence to achieve in all students.

Breaking Bad: Tackling Behavior Problems at the Core

We often see behaviors at school that are detrimental to both the students exhibiting the behavior and those around them. Many times, inattention, hyperactivity, impulsivity and even aggression may be more than a student demonstrating that he or she is bored, acting out or seeking attention. These behavioral issues interfere with student learning because they are disruptive or consume a lot of class time, but have we truly considered what foundational issues are behind those actions? What if we could address the actual core problems causing those behaviors rather than just continually dealing with the symptoms? Join Dr. Martha Burns to find out what these ongoing student behaviors may be masking and what you can do to turn things around for the students who may need your efforts the most.

Adolescent Struggling Readers and Fast ForWord Literacy

Whether in traditional classrooms or the new normal of remote learning, struggling readers in middle and high school experience reduced confidence and decreased motivation. The increase in reward-seeking and social sensitivity of adolescence only magnify these challenges. Fast ForWord Literacy was built to reverse this downward motivational trend in live and virtual learning environments by providing highly adaptive, rigorous exercises that simultaneously train core reading skills like word recognition and comprehension while building foundational learning capacities such as attentional and memory skills. Supporting both classroom and remote at-home use, Fast ForWord Literacy includes robust reporting beyond just student growth, but also traditional classroom metrics like attendance, participation, and errors. Remote learning may be here to stay, so we’ve designed a program to help educators and secondary students rise to the times. Join us for a free webinar describing how the millions of adolescent struggling readers and their schools and instructors can benefit from Fast ForWord Literacy.

While home environment, access to books, and social and economic factors all play a part in literacy development, brain differences also play a crucial role. Join us to learn what's different about the brains of those students who struggle to read and what you can do to help wire their brains for fast progress. This is for all educators and administrators who work with students with disabilities and those receiving Tier 3 RtI support for reading. 

45 minutes | November 10, 2016 | Presented by Martha S. Burns, Ph.D.

RTI Tier 3: What’s Not Working

Teachers wonder: “I’m doing everything right. I’m working so hard. Why aren’t they learning?” For students receiving Tier 3 intervention who are not making progress, there’s a new way to move forward. Join us for 45 minutes to hear from Dr. Marty Burns about how to use neuroscience-designed approaches to help your students make real improvements - and stay out of special ed. Dr. Burns will discuss how to "wire" the brain for reading and show how the NEW Fast ForWord for K-12 now includes speech verification technology that "listens" to students and helps them decode as they read aloud - rapidly building reading fluency and comprehension. Get to the root causes of why Tier 3 isn't working. Join us to learn how!
