Cognitive Development and Learning in Young Children Webinar (Recording)

Presenter(s): Gloria Maccow, PhD

To learn the skills and concepts presented in the classroom, children must pay attention, register and assign meaning to information they see and hear, and store information in memory. The transition from infancy to early childhood is associated with increased proficiency in tasks requiring attention, working memory, and cognitive flexibility, all of which help to predict rate of learning. This one-hour webinar will describe cognitive development in young children. The presenter will use sample data to discuss and show the relationship between cognitive abilities and learning.
