It Hurts to be Excluded - Educating with Neuroscience 2017 Conferences

Posted by Peter Barnes on April 12, 2017 at 10:02 AM

stressed sad boy.jpgDo you know what it feels like to be discriminated against, to be excluded?

I hope you don’t, it’s not nice.

It happened to me recently.  A travel insurance company told me they would not renew the annual travel insurance policy I’d had for years.

The reason?  I’ve had a birthday.  I’m a year older, and they don’t insure people my age on that policy.

Every day in our schools some kids feel discriminated against, feel excluded.  Because they are different in some way from the group. They may be physically different. They might have learning challenges and can’t keep up with the rest of the class.

Whatever the reason it’s just not nice. It feels awful.

What’s going on in the student’s brain when they are discriminated against? How can teachers support these students?

If this interests you, make sure you attend one of the Educating with Neuroscience 2017 Conferences - in Melbourne, Sydney or Auckland.

Speakers include neuroscientist, Dr Steve Miller and learning and movement expert, Cheryl Chia.
