Web Event: Code to Learn

 webeventlogoDate: Thursday April 21, 2016

Time: 3:30 pm EDT

Description: 

Learning to code has become an increasingly popular activiy for children. This is a good trend. We feel, however, that one of the most powerful reasons for learning to code is undervalued. That reason is to be able to use code to learn. To learn art, to learn math, to learn science. Computer science is wonderful but there are so many other things that can be learned with the help of coding.

Presenters: Brian Silverman and Artemis Papert

Since the late 1970s, Brian Silverman has been involved in the invention of learning environments for children. His work includes dozens of Logo versions (including LogoWriter & MicroWorlds), Scratch, LEGO robotics, TurtleArt and the PicoCricket. Brian is the president of the Playful Invention Company. The company does design consulting  for the MIT Media Lab and LEGO. Brian enjoys recreational math, is a computer scientist and is a master tinkerer. He once built a tictactoe-playing computer out of TinkerToys.

Artemis Papert is an artist creating art in both traditional and digital media. After a first career as a research biologist she retrained as a Shiatsu therapist and is currently training to become a Jungian psychoanalyst. Artemis has led TurtleArt workshops for a wide variety of groups in many countries.

Understanding Brain Functioning and How it Applies in the Classroom

 webeventlogoDate: November 24, 2015

Time: 3:30 pm EST

Description: 

Presented by ALDI and LEARN

This workshop will review three key aspects of learning. First, we will identify which brain networks are involved in learning. In part, we will review brain plasticity and the role of emotions in learning. We will then discuss what can be done within the classroom environment to enhance activation of these networks? Focus will be placed on motivation and cognition. A link will be made with the recognition networks of UDL. Lastly we will discuss factors that can hinder learning such as mindset, anxiety and attention. Here we will also make any relevant connections to affective networks of UDL. The goal of this workshop is to provide teachers with relevant neuroscience information to help create a classroom environment that is conducive to learning and the brain.

Presenter: Cindy Hovington

Cindy is the founder of Curious Neuron, a program that provides people with the necessary skills and knowledge related to the brain. They create customized private sessions for children, students and seniors as well as workshops for students, teachers and parents. Cindy obtained her PhD in neuroscience from McGill University. Her thesis focused on the emotional and cognitive difficulties experienced by patients with schizophrenia. She is currently pursuing her postdoctoral research in education where she is studying the impact of neuroscience outreach in K-12 science classrooms. Her main passion is the brain, but she is also interested in taking relevant information from neuroscience and figuring out how to best apply this in the classroom.

Target Audience: all levels
