webinar graphic

NCSL Webinars allow attendees to participate in meetings taking place around the world from the comfort of their desk.

They are collaborative, interactive and easy to use.

This webinar is the first in a series of two webinars that will offer Early Learning Fellows an exchange of ideas and solutions related to early learning, and provide them with practical policy information they can use in their states. Deborah Leong, Ph.D., will expand on her May 2 Early Learning Fellows presentation that discussed the relationship between executive function/self-regulation and learning in the early childhood classroom.  In addition, Miriam Calderon will follow Leong’s presentation by leading a discussion on the policy issues that arise from the research on the importance of executive function and achievement.  An interactive question-and-answer period will follow.
