AM Keynote: What We Say Matters with Shauna King
The language used by adults who teach, mentor or support children can have an incredible impact on student learning, motivation, and behavior. Through a review of evidence-based practices and neuroscience discoveries, we will gain skills in maximizing feedback, redirecting negative behavior,and building positive relationships.

PM Keynote: Rewiring Our Perceptions of Discipline: Connections Over Compliance with Dr. Lori DeSautels
Applied Educational Neuroscience is a framework that is built upon educator brain state, attachment, co-regulation and teaching ourselves and our students about their neuroanatomy. Explore discipline protocols from the lens of neuroscience and address specific shifts within the traditional and brain aligned models and practices. We will begin to understand that traditional discipline works best for kids that need it the least and works least for kids who need it the most. When we are dysregulated, our brains do not respond to words, lectures, consequences, or rewards. Relational discipline is not something we do to children, it is something we want to create within them. Lastly, we will share new brain aligned strategies for meeting students in brain development promoting lasting behavioral changes and the healthy regulation of our nervous systems.
