Neuroteach Global Access Program
FREE ACCESS TO SCIENCE OF LEARNING PROGRAMS FOR TEACHERS AND STUDENTS
The Neuroteach Global Access Program was created in late 2020 as a way to support public schools and districts throughout the United States in recovering from the academic, social, and emotional impact of COVID-19. With continued grant funding, the CTTL is able to continue its support of teachers and expand its direct support of students by offering complimentary access to the newly launched online learning strategies course – Neuroteach Global Student.
Elevating a teacher’s understanding of the Science of Learning enhances their ability to adapt, adjust, and accelerate learning for students as they work toward meeting defined outcomes. Providing students with learning strategies rooted in the Science of Learning can help them to identify current areas of strengths and challenges, and build self-efficacy.
The Neuroteach Global Access Program offers cohorts of 25-40 teachers from the same school or district complimentary licenses to three online micro-courses for one year. These micro-courses are self-paced, professional learning experiences centered in Mind, Brain, and Education (MBE) Science (also referred to as the Science of Learning). By completing these courses, teachers can bring the most promising research and strategies in how a student’s brain learns, changes, and thrives directly into the classroom with specific practices to elevate teacher effectiveness, student achievement, and the whole child’s school experience.
With this opportunity, schools can work toward applying a research-informed lens to student success from the perspective of both teachers and students. Schools participating in the Access Program can receive up to 50 free licenses to Neuroteach Global Student for learners in grades six through 12 for one year.
“I have been an educator for nine years. My knowledge of MBE Science has had a profound impact on my teaching. It informs and reaffirms every decision I make in the classroom and in my planning. I also explicitly talk to my students about the brain and why we do certain activities as a class. So far this year we have discussed their amygdala, metacognition, the forgetting curve, and much more.” – Molly Magner, Math Teacher, NTG Mission Grader
