[Xmca-l] FW: Join Us: Brain-Friendly Assessments for Student Growth
I just got this notice. Note that brain-friendly still often trumps culture-friendly in education. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. p

Leverage Neuroscience Research to Deepen Students’ Learning.
Join Dr. David A. Sousa, author of our new book, Brain-Friendly Assessments: What They Are and How to Use Them<http://email.learningsciences.com/K00T8TA00bBA3rBVi06V0J0>, for a fascinating webinar on assessment strategies based on neuroscience research.
Sousa will discuss the state of testing and assessment on the 2015 education landscape and address critical questions that today’s educators have, such as:
* What makes assessment brain-friendly?
* What and whom should be assessed?
* How is assessment different from testing?
* How can it impact student and teacher growth?
When students ask how they’re going to use the content they learn, they’re searching for meaning so they can move the information to long-term memory. It’s exactly what we want them to do, and brain-friendly assessments can make it an easier goal to achieve.
Attend Dr. Sousa’s webinar<http://email.learningsciences.com/q6JT0B0Vbs0V8B03A0iB00T> to learn about the design and implementation of assessments that are truly in the best interest of students.
