This talk focuses on the social/emotional aspects of your brain development – how feeling impacts our thinking. While the times that this brain really has the steering wheel is 2-8yrs and again in the middle of adolescence, it is relevant to all learners who want to feel engaged, enthusiastic and passionate about what they do.

The fundamental mistake New Zealand society has made over the last few decades, is thinking that a two-year-old is a little seven-year-old and that the earlier we get ready to be seven, by learning numeracy and literacy, the better off we will be. That’s just not how our brain develops. A large part of intelligence is problem-solving and problem-solving is hugely dependent on creativity. Creatively largely comes online, between the ages of two and seven, in a free-play, child-lead environment. Its development is inhibited if we focus instead on seven-year-old formalised literacy and numeracy.
Learning is so much easier when the learner is engaged. Come along and learn how to engage your brain.

Nathan Wallis Bio:

Host of the documentary “All in the Mind”, and co-host of the TV Series “The Secret Life of Girls”, Nathan Wallis, Aotearoa’s renowned neuroscience educator, has been captivating audiences over 250 times per year to sell out events in New Zealand, Australia, & China.

With a profound reputation as a lively and engaging speaker, Nathan uses humour and plain language to condense twenty-five years of neuroscience research into his unique ‘tell you how it is’ style. You’ll be absolutely captivated and walk away jam-packed with more than a few “ah-ha” moments.

Nathan’s talks will be of interest to anyone who is committed to understanding the workings of their own brain and improving the quality of their lives, regardless of whether they have children or not. Just because all the groovy brain stuff happens in the early years of life, this doesn’t mean that it’s not absolutely relevant to you now. In fact, having a conscious awareness of how your brain works and reacts will lead you towards a more enhanced, happy, content and consciously intelligent life.
