Teaching with the Brain in Mind Part 3: Learning Naturally
Brain-based learning is not new – it’s natural. Understanding how the brain assimilates information, focuses attention, creates memories, and functions are key in planning, designing, and teaching effectively. Participants will explore concepts related to brain integration, application of neuro-considered strategies, and the creation of an environment that naturally enhances student learning. The connection between learning naturally and the five core competencies of social/emotional learning, including grit and resilience, will be shared. The importance of movement and play will also be discussed.
