Learning & the Brain
Boston, MA
Friday, November 10, 2017 - Sunday, November 12, 2017
How can we create schools of the future, today? Rapid advances in brain and learning sciences, classroom design, emerging technologies such as VR, and socially-interactive robots are providing the answers and ideas for transforming today's schools and classrooms. Brain sciences and brain imaging are merging with virtual/augmented reality games and simulation to improve student engagement in learning. New socially-interactive robots for the classroom and intelligent agents are changing the way teachers teach and tutor students, and will change future careers and skills. And ideas from "the science of learning" and "hacking" are changing the physical structure of the classroom, learning spaces, instruction, assessment and the ways students learn.  Find out how you can transform your classrooms, your teaching, your assessments and student engagement with brain science, virtual reality, innovative design, and robotics.
