The idea that a greater understanding of the brain can improve teaching and learning is very seductive. Whilst there are no silver bullets, there is much that can be gained from educational neuroscience and the impact this could have in the classroom. This webinar will provide a first step in building your knowledge within this hugely interesting field and what value it could bring to teaching. Aimed at school leaders and teachers, it will look into brain development at different ages, the implications on teaching and dispel a few ‘neuromyths’ in the process.
Why educational neuroscience? Benefits and challenges
Trying to understand the brain: structure, function and maturation… and the risk of neuromyths
Some implications for teaching
Brain and inhibition: Is it worth waiting? The value of ‘thinking time’
Neuroscience for Learning: Is there a Better Way of Teaching?Interesting webinarGrace Pulman - The Heath School
The teenage brainAn interesting watch that is a very complex area of knowledgeLorraine Hall - The Heath School
The myths-buster section was very useful.The webinar clarified how the brain makes connections over time.Lucy Dale, Teacher - Harlowbury Primary School
The brain and how children learnAlways interesting to find out more information on how children's brains learn.Sam Wooldridge, Teacher - Discovery Primary Academy
Interesting concepts to considerIt makes perfect sense to combine understanding of how the brain functions with our understanding of how students learn best.Maria King, Teacher - University Academy Long Sutton
Neuro Science for LearningGreat myth buster, the second half of the session was more pertinent with regards to teaching and learning, but the whole session was really interesting and informative.Lillian Drakard, Teacher - Ormiston Sudbury Academy
The BrainVery interesting and complex information, helping to understand how the brain learns and what are Neuro-muths.Carol Travers-Orton, Support staff - Robin Hood Academy
Follow the Science and Improve Learning in the ClassroomThis Webinar is very informative, thought provoking and useful. ALL TEACHERS SHOULD WATCH THIS. The first half is fascinating and lays the foundation for the practical applications of the knowledge in the second half which is supported by academic and scientific research. An excellent Webinar.Richard Stroud - The Forest High School
Neuroscience EducationVery insightful and gave me the understanding of how the brain works in young people. In addition it also gave me an insight on how to embed neuroscience in teaching and learning and how to meet the needs of every child in a classroom setting.James Owusu, teacher - The Sittingbourne School
Neuroscience insightVery interesting from the science perspective. The second half was applicable to any teachers and gives some food for thought about best practices in the classroom.Tom Pender, Science Teacher - Shoeburyness High School
NeuroscienceInteresting - reminded me of some basic principles that I learnt about on my teaching course but had 'slipped' my mind over the day-to-day teachingEmma Pearcey - Padnell Junior School
Very interesting and thought provoking.Veronica DEARDEN - Pike Fold Community Primary School
Neuroscience for beginnersLots of information to go away with and think about especially the points on 'strategies to encourage thinking'. Made me think about the pace of my lessons(need to try the 3 second stop and think) and how to make more explicit links between different ideas and not assume the children will make them.Nichola Byrne, Year 1 class teacher - Forefield Community Infant and Nursery School
Very informative.Flora Williams - The Appleton School
ReviewIt was goodRobyn Martin - The Appleton School
Neuroscience for learning: is there a better way of teaching?I found the explanation of how our brain works facinating. The tips and strategies given, were interesting and useful.Tulin Kemal - Lancasterian Primary School
Very informative and made me think more deeply into how the brain worksVery interesting and pitched at just the right level. Challenged and informed in just the right measure.Mary McPortland - Norlington School and 6th Form
Great Practical InformationEnjoyed the practical activities to show how the brain works. Lots of useful information that I can take back to the classroom, e.g. to extend the waiting time when asking questions in order to obtain better answers and better ideas. Thank you.Kathleen Tekiner - Lancasterian Primary School
Neuroscience for learning: Is there a better way of teaching?This was interesting information on how the brain works and the on-going research to aid education. It gives some different strategies to try out when teaching children.Susannah Routledge, TA - Chapel Street Primary School
Great introduction into the impact of Neuroscience in educationThis is a great webinar. As the speaker mentions, some of the information that he discusses is common knowledge, however some of the things he discusses are very interesting and very useful!Stefan Perry-Hall, Teacher - Selly Oak Trust School
NeuroscienceHeavy going, but reinforced some salient points. For example, giving children (and adults for that matter) processing time, especially when checking for understanding.Chris Foster, support staff - Grove Street Primary School and Nursery School
NeuroscienceMy second CPD session was as insightful as the first!Josh Prentice - The Appleton School
NeuroscienceDidn't expect much from this webinar but ended up enjoying it and making plenty of notesDan Granger, Teacher - Tupton Hall School
neuroscience for better class teachingThis was truly interesting and gave me a heightened appreciation of how to increase learning success with basic adjustments to my learning environment and teaching practice. Thank you so much for such a fascinating webinar.Julia Banks, Key Stage Lead - Grove Street Primary School and Nursery School
HelpfulGood narrative that was easy to follow.Claire Montrose, Literacy HLTA - Robert Blake Science College
An introduction to Neuroscience for LearningDerek transferred his knowledge and passion for this topic with ease. An interesting speaker with diagrams and visuals to support and help make connections. I particularly enjoyed the practical elements.Helen Jones - Selly Oak Trust School
Interesting topicAn interesting topic to consider and learn more about. Lots of things to now consider during my teaching.Ben Watt, Teacher - TEACH Poole
Good high level summary of some of the conceptsI particularly appreciated the sections on the Goswami Review and theories about the effect of "inhibition of prior knowledge" and "domain specific learning"Louise Kearns - Anglo European School
Mr EdVery informative presentation that helps to reinforce some of the standard practices we as teachers perform on a daily basis, while adding greater understanding of the scientific explanations to why these practices exist and are applied by teaching staff.Matthew James - Retford Oaks Academy
Interesting seminar with relevant ideas.Bernadette Simpson, Support staff - Robin Hood Academy
Neuroscience in educationI felt this webinar only scratched the surface of the links to how the brain affects learning yet gave a good basis of the need for a multi sensory approach to learning and the importance of thinking time for all children.Carol Dean, Support staff - Harlowbury Primary School
A thought provoking presentation. Encouraged to integrate and add suggested ideas to current classroom practice.Interesting presentationJackie WORRELL, Teacher - Corley Centre
Brilliant! Worth for every Teacher or Enabler to watch.Loved it!Rita Butkeviciute, Teacher - Queen Katharine Academy
InformativeAn interesting webinar about the complexity of learning as a whole process and some useful strategies about how to encourage more thinking within the classroom.Gabriella Barthos, Teacher - Roding Primary School
Engaging webinarI found Prof. Derek Bell very interesting and engaging to listen to. I made a large number of notes, as it helps me think and I watched this 60 minute webinar during three sittings, so it took me a lot longer than one hour. I would recommend it highly as a starting point for anyone that would like to refresh their practice in light of more recent research.Sigrid Leidig - Simon Langton Girls' Grammar School
Brilliant!Awesome.Ronni Monkcom - Miltoncross Academy
A lot of food for thoughtA very informative and interesting webinar.
