Jared Cooney Horvath (PhD, MEd) is a neuroscientist, educator, and author of the best-selling book Stop Talking, Start Influencing: 12 Insights from Brain Science to Make Your Message Stick. He has conducted research and lectured at Harvard University, Harvard Medical School, the University of Melbourne, and over 450 schools internationally. He currently serves as Director of LME Global: a team dedicated to bringing the latest brain and behavioral research to teachers, students, and parents alike.

Turning Science into Strategies
Despite decades of effort trying to marry scientific insights with real-world practice, very little (if anything) has changed in fields ranging from education to business. During this compelling and interactive session, we will explore why laboratory research rarely impacts professional practice, consider what is required in order to translate research for the real-world, and dive deeply into several concrete examples of this process in action within the field of education.

Learning Outcomes
– Describe the process of emergence and why this impedes translation
– Explain how written text and spoken words interact within the brain and what impact this has on learning
– Describe the key to deep, durable memories and how this might be meaningful across varied fields
– Explain the mechanisms behind the single worst thing human beings can do for learning and memory
