How children learn is the single most important subject for teachers to understand. And to understand learning in all its complexity, we need to examine its development.
Children's motivation and engagement are the topics of this presentation and are highlighted in the speaker's recent ASCD book, Understanding How Young Children Learn.
Wendy Ostroff discusses processes that inspire or propel learning, such as play, confidence, self-regulation, movement, mnemonic strategies, metacognition, articulation, and collaboration.
She will also distill critical findings and frameworks on children's learning into a synthesis of the important ideas for teachers to take away and reference as they design their curriculum and pedagogy.
