We may have planned a highly-engaging lesson that spans bell-to-bell with expert strategies, but if our students enter our classrooms emotionally escalated—or practically asleep—they're not likely to learn much of anything. The long-reaching effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic had a significant measurable impact on our students, from learning needs to behavioral challenges and ongoing mental health concerns, affecting our schools and classrooms long after we’ve viewed the pandemic as “over.” Leveraging educational neuroscience, we'll equip educators with practical steps they can take to foster a positive brain state for learning, so students are ready to receive that expert instruction and that the learning sticks around far after the lesson is done.
