Workshop for South African educators will explore the latest findings on neuroscience research and its relation to education

ITSI presents 2nd Annual workshop in Africa on Mind, Brain, and Education for “Educators as brain-changers”

ITSI, the pioneering provider of educational tools based on established research in the field of educational neurosciences, will be presenting the second annual workshop in Africa on Mind, Brain, and Education. Following the success of the 2018 workshop, the 2019 workshop, this time with Teach360 as the Platinum Sponsor, will explore the latest findings on neuroscience research and its relation to education, and will ask the question: “How do people learn and what can we do to improve learning?”

Mind, Brain, and Education refers to the relationship between how our brains develop (biologically) and how we learn. The human brain is a unique and dynamic organ that never stops developing. Recent discoveries in cognitive science have revealed that the human brain physically changes when it learns, and that after practicing certain skills, it becomes increasingly easier to continue learning and improving those skills. This has a significant effect on how schools and teachers should be designing their teaching plans and how learners should be taught.

Platinum Sponsor:

ITSI is proud to announce Teach360, part of the Optimi Group, as the Platinum Sponsor for 2019. The Teach360 team has been in the education industry for many years, and the company’s focus is on developing comprehensive and efficient CAPS-aligned resources for learners, teachers and schools.

Edwell Gumbo, General Manager for Schools at Teach360 commented, “We are excited to partner with ITSI and sponsor MBEAfrica19 as we have a goal to ensure that learning is improved in schools that will lead to improved educational outcomes in the country. This event is aligned to our goal of accessible lifelong learning.”

Suzann Prinsloo, Head of Marketing and Communication, added, “We are proud to be associated with Teach360 and Optimi. We all have one single goal in mind, and that is to improve the state of education in our country.”
