Using Cognitive Data to Differentiate Instruction in the Classroom
Led by an ACTIVATE™ Cognitive Development specialist, educators will have an opportunity to see the greater benefits of utilizing cognitive data to develop stronger and more effective classroom instruction. ACTIVATE™ is a leading ADHD treatment and brain training solution. Through this full day session, educators will review cognitive data and discuss the Eight Core Cognitive Capacities that can encourage better student learning. Through the use of case studies, examples, models, role playing and actual ACTIVATE™ reports, educators will see how they can best apply cognitive data to their curriculum and better meet the needs of individual students.
C8 Sciences has developed 5 new Professional development courses to help educators integrate cognitive cross-training in the classroom and to help them interpret the data they are receiving from the ACTIVATE™ program. These courses are developed from the latest research in the field of neuroscience by Yale School of Medicine and will help educators understand the importance of cognitive training and how valuable the data is in influencing classroom instruction, IEP’s, BIP’s and parent teacher conferences. These courses give educators the tools they need to not only understand the cognitive processes of their students but how these cognitive processes impact student learning and achievement.
This full-day session provides a unique opportunity to work directly with an ACTIVATE™ Cognitive Development Specialist to review cognitive data from your students’ work in ACTIVATE™, and learn how that data can inform classroom instruction. Participants will learn more about the Eight Core Cognitive Capacities and how these cognitive skills specifically impact student learning. Participants will be able to use the reports in ACTIVATE™ to differentiate instruction to meet the needs of individual students. This session includes varied activities with case studies, examples, modeling, and role-playing.
Research from Dr. Wexler is Incorporated in each Session
Bruce E. Wexler, M.D. is professor emeritus of psychiatry and senior research scientist at Yale School of Medicine and director of the Neurocognitive Research Laboratory at the Connecticut Mental Health Center. In 35 years of neuroscience research, he has advanced the understanding of brain plasticity and been an international leader in developing computer-presented brain exercises to treat cognitive deficits in people with psychiatric illnesses. His patent-pending innovations led to the development of the ACTIVATE™ cognition cross-training program for children and adults.
