How can parents prepare their smart but absent minded child for college? How can educators support the brilliant student who does well on tests but can’t remember to bring his homework to class? How can a nation improve its dismal graduation rates?
Experts now agree that the alarming high college dropout rate is directly related to weak “executive function” – a set of mental processes that help individuals plan, organize, strategize, pay attention to and remember details, and manage time and space.
In her talk, Carolyn demonstrates how executive function plays a critical role in whether a student succeeds or fails. She shares her innovative methodology and offers solutions that have been met with great success by families and institutions.
Additionally, Carolyn reveals why embedded philosophies in traditional and outdated teaching approaches can create even greater obstacles for students. She explains how the technology used in high schools and colleges is not serving the needs of students and, in many cases, is setting students up for failure.
