The first annual Brain Power Conference takes place May 3 to 4, 2012 at the Royal Conservatory in Toronto. This landmark event will help parents, teachers and others understand how a child’s brain works and how we can have a positive impact on its development.
The Brain Power Initiative brings together some of the world’s leading neuroscientists, researchers, teachers and industry luminaries to explain how the findings of science are having a long-lasting impact on how children grow and prepare for lifelong learning.
Language, Learning and the Mind
Ellen Bialystok, PhD, FRSC
From the research lab to the play to the classroom, Dr. Bialystok, a distinguished research professor of psychology at York University in Toronto, takes us on a tour of a child’s brain, how it changes and grows, and the impact on how we think about childhood development and education. She will share insights into how a child learns language and the impact of being bilingual on cognitive function.
