Pr.Robert Greenleaf Can research from the field of neuroscience really inform educational practices? Creating and Changing Mindsets: Developing Long-term, Responsible Behaviors (90 minutes) Focusing upon the behavior of a student seldom prevents repeat occurrences. We may subdue behavior, but our experience is that the behavior always returns/repeats. Focusing on the mind’s internal movies does impact behaviors and attitudes. People learn, act out, disrupt, etc. as a result of the internal movies playing continuously in the mind. These movies generate behaviors. Teachers encounter them daily. Changing behaviors (attitudes/choices), long term, through the "Movies of the Mind" can be done. Creating "Can-Do" attitudes is a process we can influence!
