This engaging seminar provides valuable information about three key elements of Brain Compatible Teaching and Learning. Recent research about how student’s brains grow, develop and respond to the environment should influence our classroom practices. Understanding some “brain basics” can give educators guidelines that will help them design truly brain-compatible classrooms and school environments. Participants will gain specific practical strategies to help reduce student stress, discover systems and procedures for effective classroom management, orchestrate opportunities for differentiated instruction and learn a variety of strategies for grouping students. Discover how to create a brain and body compatible environment that will bring the JOY of learning into their classrooms! Creating a climate and environment that is conducive for learning is the foundation for success.
Learn about the 3 Key Elements of Brain-Compatible Learning:
- When the brain reacts to stress and perceived threat, its capabilities are MINIMIZED. Maintaining an emotionally SAFE and SECURE, and a physically HEALTHY environment is vital for learning!
- For POWERFUL LEARNING to occur, the brain must be stimulated in multi-sensory, ENRICHED ENVIRONMENTS.
- To assure long-term retention, the brain must ACTIVELY PROCESS new learning. Using preferred learning styles and intelligences, the learner can REFLECT, COLLABORATE and MAKE CHOICES.
