The Future is Here for Early Learning

Join us as we discuss how today’s early childhood teachers are putting research into daily practice and creating amazing learning opportunities.

Enjoy talks by two keynote speakers, a special presentation, and a workshop presented by the Momentous Institute:

  • Dr. Alice Wilder—digital literacy innovator, as well as co-creator and Head of Research and Education for the popular children’s educational television show "Super Why!"—will discuss the power of television and technology as a tool for learning. 
  • Dr. Susan Neuman, author, educator, researcher, and education policy-maker, will discuss how we can create a fighting chance for today’s children. 
  • Liza McFadden, president of the Barbara Bush Foundation, will push us to think about our future and the brain as our computer platform.
  • What Teachers Must Know – The Neuroscience of Learning and Social Emotional Health: In this two-part workshop, teaching and learning experts from the Momentous Institute will explore current brain research and its relevance to learning and social emotional health, emphasizing strategies for creating brain-friendly environments, experiences and interactions.
