How do we get students to stay engaged and motivated to learn, especially when it is online? One of the best ways to engage your students is to take advantage of the ways your students and their brains learn best. If students are not learning by the way we teach them, then we must teach them by the way they learn.
Regardless of how you deliver instruction, either virtual or face-to-face, having a brain-compatible classroom is essential! Therefore, through this online seminar, you will deduce 10 characteristics of a classroom where students can achieve at optimal levels.
This engaging and motivating virtual learning experience will demonstrate 20 instructional strategies that take advantage of the way all brains learn best to help fully engage them in learning. These strategies maximize understanding and retention since they are consistent with the way brains take in and process information. Over 10 of the strategies will be modeled during the webinar, including metaphor, movement, music, role play, and storytelling. These instructional delivery methodologies increase motivation and academic achievement for every single student, reduce behavior problems, and make teaching and learning so much fun! In addition, you will learn a lesson plan template to ensure that any lesson you plan and teach in the future will be brain-compatible. As a bonus in this challenging time, you will discover the 10 things that enable adults to look five to 10 years younger, stay healthier, and live longer! This is not a webinar to miss!
