Workshop on Introduction to Brain Based Learning/Teaching
A free workshop was presented August 25th covering the topic; An Introduction to Brain Based Teaching. Cornelia Bonterre, Country Director of ARROW Learn IT recently completed a half day training workshop for teaching staff in Pre, Primary and Secondary schools.
Having worked with the ARROW Programme for the past seven years with hundreds of children throughout Trinidad, Cornelia Bonterre has witnessed how brain based learning techniques are not only effective in the long term but almost immediate in advancing and enhancing the learning of our students.
The workshop introduced Brain Based Learning covering areas in brain development, engagement, motivation, emotion and memory. The seminar discussed successful strategies for teachers and parents to use in the classroom and at home covering the ages from pre-birth to upper secondary school.
The workshop itself provided models of ideal brain based teaching strategies that gave all participants first hand experience in the session.
