Carroll’s academic leadership team has been studying ways to respond to the recent explosion of research in neuroplasticity. Today’s premise is that it is the duty of effective educators to work to improve the cognitive functions of our students. We see it as our responsibility to develop logical reasoning, information processing skills, working memory, and visual thinking in our students.
Our charge is to bridge the gap between research and educational practice to more comprehensively meet the academic needs of Carroll students. To do this, we will identify the unmet learning needs of Carroll students, pilot and develop state-of-the-art approaches, rigorously evaluate novel approaches in pilot studies, and integrate the most promising teaching methods into the Carroll curriculum. Whenever appropriate, we will also partner with academic institutions and others to combine resources and to disseminate our discoveries to the broader educational community.
