Punahou School hosts an annual two-day symposium designed for practicing educators and focusing on learning and the brain. An invited guest speaker offers keynote addresses, and breakout sessions provide a wide range of topics specifically to support classroom teaching and curriculum development.
In 2010, Frank Kros, a specialist in brain-based learning, headlined the symposium "Brain-based Education – From Research to Practice" with three keynote topics: An Introduction to Brain-based Learning, A Brain-Friendly Teaching Model, and Rethinking ADHD: What Works, What Doesn't and Why. Breakout sessions included topics such as creativity and innovation in teaching; the important role of play; individualizing pedagogical structures for diverse learners; and applying the latest brain research to common classroom challenges.
