Given the overwhelming amount of research being conducted on the human brain, it is imperative for educators to identify those instructional practices that best align with the findings of those studies. Too often it is fashionable for instructional programs to claim that they are based on brain research, when they truly are not.

To help ensure that the role of brain-compatible instruction becomes a "foundation" to educational practices, and not a passing "fad", Dr. Pat Wolfe, author and world renowned expert on brain-compatible learning, presents a compelling and practical approach to help educators grapple with the high volume of brain research inundating the field of education today.

Visit classrooms where students with disabilities are benefiting from brain-compatible instructional strategies as an integral part of their day; hear from staff who are effectively using brain compatible strategies such as Response to Intervention (RTI), and learn how to become educated consumers by differentiating the realities of brain research from its many modern myths.

Viewers will learn:

  •  To become more literate of the general structure and function of the brain.
  • Steps to recognize whether a research study is valid or not.
  • The importance of being cautious when making applications of research findings in the classroom.
  • Ways to apply brain-based learning into the classroom
  • How schools translate valid research into effective instruction
