“Multiple Pathways to the Student Brain” - 

Energizing and Enhancing Instruction

In this exciting presentation, loaded with real brain images and scattered with interactive experiences, attendees will actually see how learning takes place in the brain through powerful images. Neuroscience indicates that the more modalities by which learners encode information, the easier that information is to learn and recall. Go beyond visual, auditory, and kinesthetic and find out about other powerful learning pathways in the brain. Learn how to avoid "drill and kill" and get more learning in less time. Discover what part of the brain you are responsible for helping to develop. Find out how to get more impact and reach diverse learners. Acquire strategies that tap into powerful brain circuits.
