Selected BrainSMART Articles and Presentations

*With only a few exceptions, the keynote, Raising Student Achievement – What Works? with Dr. James Cisek and the team at Audio Education Online, is current. However, today Donna Wilson and Marcus Conyers have now worked with over 150,000 educators live and over 3,000 have enrolled in our online studies. The books mentioned in the keynote are currently 4th edition books and include more research now available regarding both learning and teaching. Current versions of books are available here (ADD LINK).  The approach discussed in the keynote is even more appropriate now, with new standards, than before.
