Get a hands-on look at the Executive Function Challenge™—a simulation that lets you experience what it’s like to have executive dysfunction.
About this event
Executive Functioning refers to the set of skills needed to perform daily tasks. It includes things like paying attention, organizing, planning, starting tasks, regulating emotions, and self-monitoring. The importance of its role in academics has gained support in recent years, and interventions targeting executive function skills have skyrocketed in use. To better understand executive functioning and the critical role it plays in learning, we’ve created the Executive Function Challenge™.
The Executive Function Challenge™ is a simulation that lets participants directly experience how it feels when a learner has a weakness in one or more of the key areas of executive function including working memory, time management and planning, impulse control, self regulation, organization, and sustaining attention. It also includes an overview of executive function, covers common warning signs, and suggests research-based interventions. In this webinar, our panelists will provide an overview of the simulation, discuss how it helps simulation participants, and explore ways it can be used in your learning community.
The webinar will consist of a 30-minute expert panelist discussion followed by an opportunity for attendees to directly interact with the speakers in a live Q&A session.
