Teaching All Kinds of Minds (Newport, RI) 08/18/2020 to 08/20/2020 This professional learning seminar engages K-12 educators in exploring the science of learning and the All Kinds of Minds (AKOM) neurodevelopmental framework. We will use case studies and activities to practice observing and describing students’ learning, and we will explore how to adapt instruction and design targeted interventions based on the neurodevelopmental demands of an academic task and students’ profiles. Specifically, participants will:

  • Build connections between our understanding of the learning brain, executive function, and culturally sustaining practices
  • Learn about a neurodevelopmental framework comprised of eight neurodevelopment constructs that help us understand learning and its variations
  • Use a neurodevelopmental framework for learning (NDFL) to analyze the neurodevelopmental demands of the tasks we ask students to do
  • Research strategies for accommodations and interventions that meet students at their breakdown points
  • Develop a common language about learners and learning to use with colleagues, students, and families – allowing conversations about student learning challenges to move beyond labeling
