“Engaging the brain part 1?
Have you ever taught something only to discover that it just did not “stick” in the minds of your students? Research has a great deal to say about the brain and learning! It is possible to easily help students learn faster and remember more… and have more fun. You will learn many practical tips and strategies that you can use immediately.
You will learn and discover: * how the brain processes information * the best way for students to take notes * why state and strategy are just as important as content * the top 10 Brain-Learning Principles * what students report is the #1 Study Technique * how music affects learning * how to boost attention * how to increase the capacity of one’s memory and much, much more!
This workshop is divided into two lively, humorous, and interactive sessions. You will leave with new knowledge and many eye-opening ideas that will make this year different.
