The Most Important Thing Students Are NOT Learning: Why teaching learning HOW to learn is critical
What’s the one thing that can help every child succeed? It’s the ability to learn HOW to learn, otherwise known as, Executive Function. By directly, explicitly and systematically teaching this process, students build insight that directly influences their strategy selection and adaptive adjustment during the challenges of everyday learning. Sucheta Kamath, Founder and CEO of ExQ® hosts a discussion with educators about the value of teaching Executive Function skills as a crucial foundation for strengthening educational outcomes. Learn about empowering students with self-awareness and life skills to become more creative, empathetic, problem solvers.

Education Week can provide 1 hour of Professional Development credit for online summits if the educator attends live. A Certificate of Completion will be emailed to you shortly after the summit has ended. On demand viewing of a summit cannot be used for credit. As with all professional development hours delivered, Education Week recommends each educator verify ahead of the online summit that the content will qualify for professional development in your school, district, county, or state with your supervisor, human resources professional, and/or principal or superintendent’s office.
