BRAIN CONNECTION TEACHERS’ NETWORK OFFICIAL LAUNCH SEMINAR
Being the Market Leader in Brain Fitness training since 2001, BrainFit Studio has always been at the forefront of cognitive innovation, and taking a holistic and scientifically-proven approach towards our Students’ learning capabilities. We have also worked closely and in tandem with Parents in our programmes to achieve high levels of success and satisfaction. These are well backed up by positive feedback and data collected by us over the years.
To complete the circle, we are now launching a new initiative:
– Brain Connection Teachers’ Network –
to reach out to all Educators: teaching professionals, school teachers and tuition teachers. We hope to bridge the vital link between how the brain learns (cognitive neuroscience) and how teaching is applied (education). To formalise this initiative, we are now organising an Official Launch Seminar and would like to invite you to an afternoon session of talks and interaction with experts in neuroscience and education.
Besides forging a mutual partnership, we also aim to provide updated scientific information on cognitive development which can enhance your teaching and students’ results. To ensure the initiative’s continuity and progress, and to keep everyone updated, our Educators will receive a monthly e-newsletter. Regular quarterly workshops/seminars will also be organised, along with an Annual Conference. We welcome you to join us in our endeavour to improve the educational outcomes of our children through bridging education and cognitive science.
TOGETHER, WE CAN MAKE A BIGGER DIFFERENCE IN OUR CHILDREN’S LEARNING!
