Understanding Cognitive Fitness in Education

Cognition is fundamental to all thinking and behaviour, but do you know how to help pupils embed and use knowledge fluently; developing their understanding, connecting new knowledge with existing information so that they know, utilise and employ more and not just memorise disconnected facts?

How do you know that there has been an alteration in long-term memory?

Do you, your staff, parents, governors and pupils have good Cognitive Fitness? How do you know and do you know what to do if your or their cognition is in a poor state?

Do you, your staff, parents, governors and pupils have good Cognitive Fitness? How do you know?

Join us for a one day conference to:

  • Learn classroom techniques
  • Identify poor cognitive fitness
  • Understand the impact of stress on learning
  • Understand how trauma affects cognitive fitness
  • Find out how the use of Apps can improve the cognitive fitness of pupils, parents and staff and how the methodology of these can be replicated in the classroom, through good pedagogy
  • Spend time developing your understanding of the five, core domains of cognition and learning and how this meets the expectations of the Education Inspection Framework

 

You will have the opportunity to develop innovative practice in your classroom, based on the latest research outcomes in neuroscience.
