Conference: Improving K-12 education with cutting-edge cognitive neuroscience research
Date:7/27/2011

New discoveries in the field of cognitive neuroscience hold great promise for improving current teaching methods. Yet there is a significant gap between such scientific discoveries and the application of this knowledge in the classroom. The New York Academy of Sciences and the Aspen Brain Forum Foundation will present a landmark conference on September 22-24, 2011 in Aspen, Colorado, "Cognitive Neuroscience of Learning: Implications for Education." The goal of this conference is to facilitate the translation of scientific discoveries about how children learn into new teaching methods, and will include a careful review of the current obstacles to applying these methods in the classroom, along with related emotional, sociological, and environmental issues.

The conference will feature a keynote lecture by Nobel Laureate Carl Wieman of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, and a lecture for the public by Goldie Hawn, actress and founder of the Hawn Foundation. Plenary sessions and panel discussions during the three-day conference will address early childhood development and school readiness; reading and language learning and associated disorders such as dyslexia; acquisition of mathematical reasoning and how to effectively teach mathematics; development of executive functioning and how to improve attention; effects of poverty on learning and brain development; and how to effectively translate research findings about optimal learning into the classroom. For a full list of speakers and topics, visit www.nyas.org/Neuroeducation.

The scientific organizers of the conference are Drs Daphne Bavalier, University of Rochester; Adele Diamond, University of British Columbia; Bruce McCandliss, Vanderbilt University; and Kenneth Pugh, Haskins Laboratories.
