Cutting-edge research has shown that working memory—the ability to store and manipulate information—is the most important learning skill a child can have. Working memory is the foundation of good grades and a successful life beyond the classroom. Without it, students would fail at every task, and with it they can dramatically improve their classroom performance.
How can you make working memory work for your students?
Join Dr. Tracy Alloway, the world’s leading expert on working memory in the classroom for a seminar sponsored by Pearson Education and the educational publishers Sage Press.
Working Memory: Give Your Students the Competitive Edge
Lift the grades of the whole class and come to Dr. Tracy’s seminar. Find out how to identify gifted children and help them achieve their full potential. Dr. Tracy will reveal her unique and proven methods to give your students the competitive edge. In a recent UK-wide study, students using JUNGLE MEMORY, a brain-training program based on her research and promoted by Pearson Education, improved from a grade C to a B, and a B to an A after just 12 weeks! It is the only training program scientifically proven to raise grades.
Teachers around the world have said:
‘Dr. Alloway is excellent! Every educator should hear her.’
