Sessions

Global case studies in dynamic instruction

No duration specified

Movement

45 minutes

If students sit still too long, the brain doesn’t receive enough oxygen to function at its highest level. Find out how teachers around the world are getting students out of their chairs to support brain function and improve engagement – while continuing to teach core content.

Socialisation

45 minutes

When students talk about what they are learning, they process the information, practice new vocabulary and form new mental connections. But how do you set up classroom chat that stays on track? Discover the best ways to facilitate productive conversations in your lessons.

Visualisation

45 minutes

Learning is more effective when ideas are reinforced with visual information, which the brain processes in a separate channel to text/auditory input, and is easily assimilated. Hear about proven methods for using images to help students grasp meaning, organise ideas and remember concepts.

Effective directions

45 minutes

In an interactive classroom, where students shift rapidly between activities, effective directions prevent wasted time and eliminate the dreaded question: What are we supposed to be doing? Learn fool-proof tactics to get students organised and moving quickly – and keeping them on task.

The rock ‘n’ roll classroom

1 hour and 30 minutes

We now have more than a century of scientific evidence about the extraordinary neurological effects of music. Today, many sectors, from health to retail, harness music to heal, control, influence, and modify human behaviour. Now it’s the turn of education to harness this powerful tool.

Making material memorable

1 hour and 30 minutes

Every day, many otherwise perfectly bright students fail tests because no one taught them how to remember information. In this experiential session, find out how quickly you can train your own brain – and those of your students – to remember more information than you ever thought possible.
