Neuroplasticity and Education: Strengthening the Connection – October 25, 2013

Neuroplasticity and Education Strengthening the Connection - October 25, 2013

The brain is a beautiful organ. One that enables us to plan, problem solve, reason, interact, remember, forgive, forget, and a myriad of other tasks, all within the space of a few mere pounds. Every day we are learning more and more about how malleable the brain really is, and how, with intervention, our brain has the capacity to grow, change, rewire and strengthen.

The brain’s ability to change over time, with targeted and sustained stimulation, is called neuroplasticity. In recent years educators, and professionals in related fields, have become very interested in learning more about the implications that neuroplasticity holds for those who we teach…children, teenagers, and adults. If we could provide opportunities for students to strengthen weaker brain capacities at an early age, thereby sparing them the struggles that lie ahead as a student with a learning disability, wouldn’t we? Wouldn’t learning more about the effect of exercise, meditation and love on the brain’s ability to function help direct our best practices as caregivers?

On October 25th, 2013 on the B.C. Professional Development Day, up to 1000 educators, parents, psychologists, counsellors, speech language pathologists, occupational therapists, neuroscientists and those in related professions from all over the world will gather in Vancouver, BC to hear six world renowned pioneers in the field speak about the connections between education and neuroscience.
