Brain Based Learning Team

brain The Brain-Based Learning Team seeks to cause a fundamental and intentional shift at APS towards a brain-based educational system, through the collection, filtering, and sharing of resources; advocacy for practices that are aligned with the current research; and the creation of a district curriculum to promote the neuro-cognitive literacy of all learners, students and educators alike.


The Brain-Based Learning Team had a productive year in 2017-2018. Here are some highlights:


  • We developed a comprehensive framework for organizing our thinking about neuro-cognitive literacy. Check it out on the “Six Pillars” tab to the left.

  • We developed a PD Pathway for Brain-Based Learning to be delivered next year. You can find out more HERE.

  • We collected information about how teachers use Brain Breaks across the district.

  • We sent teachers to conference in Boston to learn about new developments in the field and bring them back to APS.

  • We created this webpage for sharing our work with everyone.

  • We established a Team site in Office365. You can access it through the Teams application by adding the Brain-Based Learning Team.
