Event Description 

What is considered knowledge worth knowing? Who gets to decide? How do we use brain science to inform those choices? As educators and parents face new challenges and are presented with new technology, it is essential that we find ways to incorporate research into how we learn and remember into curriculum and education design. Learn more about the neuroscience of learning, and how both stability and changes in context can affect what we learn and how we retain it.

Event Speakers
