Delving into the Mind: How Learning Really Happens

From moments after birth, people develop within social relationships—we come to the world biologically ready to engage with other people, and the emotions we feel in social contexts shape how we feel about ourselves and how we learn. Based on recent research (developmental, cognitive and neuroscientific), Mary Helen Immordino-Yang will engage the audience in a discussion about how learning happens and how teachers can support it.

How Do I Get Students to Take Responsibility for Their Own Learning
