“When a task is given in school, why does one student take thirty minutes to complete it and another only eight minutes?”

Cognitive Skills - Understanding Learning ChallengesThe U.S. Department of Education, and others indicate that weak cognitive skills are the source of over 80% of learning problems.

In this course you’ll come to understand the answer: students approach each task with varying learning tools. These tools are called cognitive skills, and these skills determine the quality, speed, and ease with which individuals learn and perform.

This course provides methods for detecting students with weak cognitive skills and tools to strengthen those skills. Teachers will receive understanding, as well as ways to apply development techniques in the classroom. The online class is fun and interactive and includes information about new brain research and how it can impact today’s classrooms.

    I love learning! Just completed this wonderful course in cognitive skill building, good towards 5 professional hours. The best part is, although I am a learning consultant and a reading specialist, I believe I learned more in this coursework, than in all my education classes combined. It got right to the point, addressing cognitive issues directly, instead of just tackling the secondary academic issues. It speaks to neuroscience, and the amazing capability of the brain to improve itself, through specific techniques and activities. The comprehensive nature of this program, and its practical uses is a marvel! Absolutely highly recommended.

    This was a very enjoyable online class. It was extremely informative about cognitive skills. As a working teacher and mother, this class gave me great flexibility with the time frames. That was really important to me and made taking this class much less stressful. I enjoyed not having to write a paper but still took as many notes as if I would have. The test/quiz at the end covered the information and the questions were straight forward and not tricky. Thank you for making an online class informative, non-stressful, and extremely enjoyable.

    I found the material that was presented in this course to be interesting and useful. I plan on applying many of the theories in my own classroom to help my students gain the skills they need to be successful learners.
