There is a series of new studies emerging over the past decade that show direct benefits of knowledge about how the brain learns that improve the likelihood of achieving desired educational outcomes in the classroom. Fifteen years ago, it was thought going from the “lab to the classroom” using neuroscientific insight was a pipe dream. Now, the new and emerging fields within the learning sciences, including Mind, Brain, and Education science, have laid out a speedy track for research, application and evaluation which provides enough evidence to share “best practice” concepts with educators. This talk will lay out the new “normal” of teacher preparation based on the additional roles of neuroscience and technology, which are particularly important in times of COVID-19.
