Professional Development Opportunity

The NHASCD Conference is being held January 9th, 2015, from 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. at the Grappone Conference Center in Concord. Participants will learn how to use advances in neuroscience research to:

—Ignite student motivation and improve student attention and focus

—Enhance students’ effort, growth mindsets and overall perseverance

—Understand how the brain’s response to stressors, including boredom and frustration, can reduce memory and result in the involuntary reactive behaviors of “acting out” and “zoning out”

—Improve student participation by reducing stress and promoting confidence and resilience

—Promote accurate working and long-term memories through the use of patterning, mental manipulation and metacognition

—Help students transfer their learning to novel situations

—Learn more about the video game model that increases students’ effort and perseverance to achieve at higher levels of challenge
