Following directions, beginning an assignment, knowing what to do with open-ended questions or prompts, managing time and materials, making a plan, and prioritizing what is most important all require the complex systems of the brain to complete any number of involuntary tasks. In classrooms around the world, educators may report that a number of learners can easily disengage from complex, multi-step tasks or may even exhibit behaviors that present as avoidant or impulsive. What do these behaviors signal and how do we best support all learners proactively in order to promote and build their own, most efficient expert learning skills and strategies?
This interactive, breakout session will be focused on understanding executive function and dysfunction through a UDL lens with the goal of promoting expert learning.
