We've just uploaded the recording from the virtual Michigan Montessori Society Conference that happened November 6, 2021. Julia Volkman, Maitri Learning's founder, led a delightfully interactive conversation with about 80 Montessorians on a Saturday morning.

They took a big picture look at the role of the following key ideas in learning:

  • Plasticity
  • Brain networks
  • Dynamic skill development
  • Executive functions
  • Attention
  • Mindfulness
  • Stress
  • Emotion
  • Memory
  • Metacognition

Thanks to MMS for pulling this together. We were so happy to sponsor this wonderful event.
