Working Memory that Works
December 11, 2017 @ 11:10 am - 12:40 pm
Dr. Harriet Greenstone, MA, OPQ, PhD, psychologist and Director Centre MDC
Working memory is a key executive function skill that is essential for academic success. It is critical for successful reading, reading comprehension and math, as well as for daily functioning at all ages. Working memory has been found to facilitate social success, effective communication, problem solving, and decision making. This workshop will discuss the ways individuals use working memory effectively, in and out of the classroom, and how to recognize strengths and deficits in this essential skill in high school students. Participants will be provided with strategies to strengthen working memory in this population.
Harriet Greenstone, MA, OPQ, PhD, is a psychologist and Director of Centre MDC. She is an adjunct professor at the University of Ottawa and lecturer at Vanier College (Continuing Education). With a Masters degree in Educational Psychology, and PhD in Integrated Studies in Education, Dr. Greenstone has a special interest in the interconnections between psychology and education – such as the study of brain plasticity and learning and life skills.
