Book Study

​Book Study - Virtual

Neural Education is excited to announce our newest program offering:  Book Study.  Each year we will highlight a different book that uses cutting edge Neural Science to apply in the classroom.

2022-23 Book Title and Dates Coming Soon!!!

For the 2021/2022 School year, Neural Education Founder and author Kieran O'Mahony led a hands-on deep dive into the Cognitive Learning Model covered in The Brain-Based Classroom (Routledge 2021).  

The book study met virtually once/month on Monday from September - May (we skip January).  Each  month a section of the chosen book was reviewed with discussion and conversations with the author(s) or Neural Education Champion.

ALL educators welcome.  Joining the book study is free, but does require registration. 

We had a great time partnering with participants as we continue dto connect neuroscience to teaching and learning. 

"Finally, the science behind what works in learning.”

Rosa M Villareal, Principal Elementary School, WA

  Neural Education is THE thing - the thing that changed everything - the thing that returned my sanity - the thing that reignited my passion for teaching."
