Mind Brain Education/Strategies on DVD

Brain-based teaching methods

When educators experience the mind of a child as a mystery to understand and unfold, rather than a problem to be solved, teachers, students and parents grow in their knowledge of building on student strengths rather than focusing on problems and learning blocks.

CD/Transcript CoverBrain Compatible Learning is the foundation for acquiring attention, focus and differentiating instruction based on the neuroscience of the brain. When educators understand “how” a student acquires, manipulates and retrieves information, we are able to build on his or her strengths and interests based on the experiences we provide in the classroom.

After participating in Brain-based teaching methods, you will learn strategies and tools to better align student instruction, behavioral plans and individual students’ understanding with regard to raising test scores and closing learning gaps. These improvements will make students feel successful and motivated to succeed.

Presenter Lori Desautels Ph.D. will explain self-reflection techniques, describe memory games for better student recall review examples of actual brain-based assignments. Desautels’ years of Brain Compatible Learning experience will give educators practical tools to employ brain-based teaching methods in their classrooms.
