Education Rewired | Anne-Marie Rollo | TEDxUniversityofSaskatchewan
The realization that educators work can alter the brain and body neurologically, biologically and chemically, shaping the finite signature of a child, offers a powerful foundation for rethinking one's philosophy of teaching. Anne-Marie Rollo shares in this talk the power of teaching in the 21st century. With a background in both physiology and education, Anne-Marie Rollo is interested in researching the intersection between neuroscience and education.
She completed her first degree from the Faculty of Kinesiology and Health Studies from the University of Regina.
She was awarded the University Prize and the prestigious President’s Medal for the most distinguished graduate and exceptional community leadership for her work with the Acquired Brain Injury Partnership Project at the Wascana Rehabilitation Centre.
Realizing her passion for working alongside children, Anne-Marie returned to complete her education degree and taught in a primary classroom in Saskatoon for 10 years. Her interest in physiology and the application of brain science to classroom teaching led Anne-Marie to complete her Master of Education in Curriculum Studies at the University of Saskatchewan.
She is currently an educational consultant for Saskatoon Public Schools and a sessional lecturer with the College of Education. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
