All students in Years 10, 11 and 12 have been privileged to spend several hours with our Neuroscientist-in-Residence, Dr Jared Cooney Horvath during the past two weeks.
Year 10 explored the Learning Process. Reviewing their learning from 2020 in the Cognizance Research Project, the sessions then looked at how to leverage this content for their classroom learning.
Years 11 and 12 looked at how the world of neuroscience can provide them with key principles for their studies in the VCE and beyond. The sessions explored memory, note-taking, learning thresholds, priming, skills transfer, the importance of sleep and many other topics. In three hours across two weeks, the students were prompted to not only appreciate that there are ways to advance their own learning, but also to take responsibility for shaping a disciplined, efficient and effective study regime.
