We will explore emerging and current brain research as it relates to how people learn. A model of inquiry, integration of subjects, inclusion of technology and the arts, (as advocated by STEAM,) facilitates engagement and builds neuro-pathways to long-term memory. Examples of projects and student artifacts from a first grade classroom will be shared.
