Welcome to the ENGAGE Masterclass on The Kinetic Classroom


Teachers, clinicians, administrators and parents have never before faced such rapid changes in the delivery of teaching and educational services. Many of us are teaching online, preparing for hybrid classes and looking for actionable ways to keep our students engaged and learning during a complicated time.

This is a time of many questions ...

"I teach first grade, my students cannot sit all day, what will I do?"

"How will we keep our students alert, motivated and interested in learning?"

"How can I effectively add movement to my classroom to better manage behavior?"

"How can I get our kids to build skills to manage their impulsivity? They need this so much!"

"School hasn't even started yet and I'm still worn-out from online teaching from last semester, I need a plan for success!"

Learn EVERYTHING you need to engage your students' brains in 5 minutes or less!

We can ease the pressure on our teachers and the stress on our students if we apply current neuroscience research in the development of our hybrid, classroom and distance learning educational programming TODAY!

  • We have the science.

  • We have the proven activities.

  • We have the motivated teachers, leaders, clinicians and parents who are ready to improve the trajectory of students' learning.
  • Learn 3-5 minute activities for use in-person, online, in the clinic and home to prime the brain for better learning and behavior.

In 6 Hours of Actionable Lessons (divided into 14 easy to watch on-demand sections) we provide you with pivotal research on how children REALLY learn & activities to engage students' cognition and self-regulation in person, on Zoom or through your own teaching via video or in-person.


 

What's in the ENGAGE Executive Function Masterclass?

50 videos + 190+ pages of downloads in 14 sections




We CAN significantly improve our children's learning with applied neuroscience!

10,000+ educators, students, clinicians, and parents + 25 years have shown us HOW....

In the ENGAGE Masterclass - you will find 50 Videos, 190+ pages of activity + strategy downloads & research...

  • We begin with the developmental precursors in learning that are well-known in the UK, Australia and Singapore yet virtually ignored in the United States.

  • We teach you the science WHY moving is so important to learning, particularly in Grades PreK-6th while the brain is so neuroplastic and influenced by your teaching (content) delivery, communication and movement.

  • We provide you with the pre-publication content from our upcoming book - CogniMoves! So you can print, project and even screen share the activities with your students.

Do you know?

Current research shows that executive function and self-regulation skills are central to academic achievement, social relationships, prosocial behavior and lifelong educational and employment outcomes.

In fact, executive function skills and prosocial behaviors are more accurate predictors of academic readiness and life success than IQ.

There are several evidence-based ways to build executive functions: High-quality neurofeedback, empirically-researched computer-delivered cognitive skills training, mindfulness and brain literacy (cognitive skills coaching).
