Objective: Introduce aspects of cognition and neurodevelopment on learning.
Participants:Teachers interacting with children of grades 1 to 8.
Research in cognitive science, neuroscience/biology and psychology has thrown new light on learning processes and the factors affecting it. The knowledge from scientific studies helps address the popular myths while giving deeper understanding of motivation and metacognition. The aim of the workshop is to bring the results of research into class room teaching.
A school teacher faces the challenge of preparing classes that engage a class with the same age children, but with differential learning curves topic-wise, dissimilar conceptual understanding, with gaps in skills and disparate external (non-school) factors influencing them. In addition, the child’s physical and emotional state affects the learning curve. Given the complexity, it is important for teachers to understand the brain from neurodevelopment aspect to design lessons appropriately and build an atmosphere of intellectual safety and trust to address the outliers (over-/under-performers) too.
The planned workshop is the first of its kind to address most if not all of the concerns of learning in an educational system as present in the Indian context. The topics to be covered are:
