159: Brain Fitness in Education - with Rebecca D. Costa, American Sociobiologist & Futurist

In this amazing episode of The EdUp Experience, sponsored by MDT Marketing, we have the honor of speaking with Rebecca D. Costa, American Sociobiologist & Futurist!  Rebecca talks to us about the future use of facial recognition software in education - there are 52 muscles in your face - and your face could be "read" to determine that you received the content you were taught.  Are we really using ALL of the tools available to us to make learning easier, more effective with the way we learn today (given our propensity toward technology)?  Rebecca says that brain fitness tools would have the greatest impact on our schools at the most effective cost.  Wondering how your brain could actually be warmed up for learning?  Don't miss this episode.

Rebecca D. Costa is an American sociobiologist and futurist. She is the preeminent global expert on the subject of “fast adaptation” and recipient of the prestigious Edward O. Wilson Biodiversity Technology Award. Her career spans four decades of working with founders, key executives and venture capitalists in Silicon Valley.
