    The Visual Language of Comics

    The Visual Language of Comics

    Neil Cohn joins us today as the internationally recognized researcher on the overlap of sequential images and language in cognition.
    How comics make you think.
    Human beings have three ways they can create thoughts to each other:
    1)  Sounds
    2)  Body Movements, Gestures
    3)  Drawings
    That's it.  

    "What about words!?!" you may ask.  Neil Cohn shows us why words are unnatural, hard to learn, and why we've such problems with them.  In addition, we open you up to an amazing 'new' language you've worked with before you could write; comics.

    Assuring Psychological Safety

    Assuring Psychological Safety

    Kieran O’Mahony, PhD, is a Learning Scientist in Cognitive Neuroscience.  He’s mapped and scientifically demonstrated how the brain accepts – that’s important – information, and how learners' brains love to learn. 
    Today’s most high-value work is cognitive in nature.  This means, if you’re a thinker, you’re more valuable.  The problem is, you’ve never been taught to think.  You’ve only been told to think. 
    Dr. O'Mahony outlines the rewards for the business, the workers, how it's done (in a matter of days!) and what to expect.
    Innovative companies are recognizing these 21st-Century Learning skills and benefitting from immense savings across the enterprise.  They’re adapting their culture to learner-centric frameworks that not only make it safe to learn, they become fun and rewarding for all.

    #002 The Beginning of BcD

    When learners are given the choice of an engaging brain-centric method versus a traditional memory-centric approach, they immediately perceive the difference and are happy to abandon the old way for Brain-centric Design. Everyone deserves to live in a world where the greatest pleasure in life—learning—is easy, effective, impactful, and enjoyable. Brain-centric Design makes this joy a reality for today’s learners and for generations of new employees who are entering the market today.

    On The Shoulders Of Giants

    On The Shoulders Of Giants

    With Brain-centric Design, the new 3Rs—Reflect, Revised Thinking, and Report Out—define processes and practices that change that original and outdated paradigm. Paradoxical and delightful outcomes emerge. Even though the focus is not on reading, writing, or arithmetic, these same proficiencies improve, along with a learner’s capacity to grow intellectually, socially, and emotionally. The simple measure of connecting neuroscience with teaching and learning invokes a paradigm shift in attitude, mental models, and intention for both the teacher and the learner.

    #005 Before and After Brain-centric Design

    “Brain-centric Design took the guesswork out of the classroom and highlighted the scientific reasons behind the success. It felt great to identify the positive traits of cognitive flexibility, social-emotional engagement, and adaptive expertise that I already possessed.”
