Attending the Future of Learning Institute, I had the good fortune of being in an interactive course presented by Mary Helen Immordino- Yang. She is a cognitive neuroscientist and educational psychologist who studies the brain bases of emotion, social interactions, and culture and their implications for development in schools. Mary Helen is a former junior high school teacher. She earned her doctorate at the Harvard University Graduate School of Education. Presently she is an Assistant Professor of Education at the Rossier School of Education and an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the Brain and Creativity Institute, University of Southern California. It was wonderful to learn directly from such a brilliant human being. Mary Helen lectures nationally and internationally on the implications of brain and cognitive science research for curriculum and pedagogy.
