Queen Anne’s and BrainCanDo Feature in Absolutely Education

Tuesday 28th February 2017

Queen Anne’s and its educational neuroscience project, BrainCanDo featured in Absolutely Education in its Hong Kong and UK editions.

Mrs Harrington was featured talking about the role of neuroscience in understanding teenage behaviour and how, at Queen Anne’s, we encourage our staff and girls to understand the teenage brain, how they work and why they behave in the way that they do.

She stressed the importance of the girls understanding their brain and giving them the knowledge of how best to boost their learning, manage stress and stay healthy.

Successful learning is about much more than concentrating or trying harder. If we understand how we get thought processes wrong then we can do more about putting them right.

Mrs Harrington also spoke about BrainCanDo’s current research project based on emotional contagion with Reading University which focuses on attitudes to learning and how behaviour in classrooms can become contagious.
