Let’s Focus

Developing Executive Function From Kindergarten Through High School

How do educators reach students who cannot focus in the classroom? Educators often think the ability to focus is related to motivation, that when a student “wants to listen,” she will. Educational scientists now understand attention is not a desire, but a skill: it is a self-regulatory “executive function,” related to goal-setting, organization, planning, and short-term memory. Join Dr. Martha Burns to learn more about executive functions, how teachers can build these skills through classroom activities, and how to augment student skills with technology when necessary.

Science of Learning: The Webinar Series

Accelerate Learning with Cognitive Science 

When educators augment the great work they do with practices driven by the science of learning, that's when the magic really takes off. At Carnegie Learning, our cognitive scientists, engineers, and instructional designers work every day to understand how our brains learn best so that we can optimize and accelerate learning for all students. In our new webinar series, you'll learn how to apply today’s rapidly-emerging neuroscience advancements to your classroom. These webinars will help educators in all disciplines as well as administrators better understand how the science of learning is reshaping education.
