Program Description:

We know more about the brain than ever before in history.  We know more about learning than ever before in history.  How do we incorporate 21st Century learning, assessment, and skills into the curriculum?  Join Dr. Jeff Borden as he unpacks what 21st Century skills and learning even means, but more importantly, as he explains how to create an eco-system of creativity, innovation, leadership, collaboration, and common sense for today’s students.  We can create problem-solving, communication-rich, and love-of-learning environments, using what we actually know about the brain and motivation.  The days of real learning are here to stay.  Come and see how our knowledge of the brain can change everything.
