Igniting A Passion for Learning

From Tuning Out to Turning On: Engaging Modern Minds
A Seminar for Primary & High School Teachers
Presented by Dr Rich Allen

“The students walking into classrooms today are radically different than those we taught 20, 10, even 5 years ago. Having grown up with the internet, digital TV and computer games, even young kids arrive with a very different idea of how they learn and new expectations of information delivery. To draw these learners in, and help them maximize their potential, we need to use instructional strategies that more closely match their fast, exciting and instantly gratifying world”

In this practical, energetic, dynamic seminar you’ll both hear about and experience brain-based teaching techniques you can use to seize – and hold! – your students’ attention, such as using today’s music,
creating relevance by connecting the material to their world, maximizing their memories’ potential, and many, many more.

You will learn how to:

  • Ensure every student, of any age, can remember your content – improving test performance
  • Harness movement and social interaction to embed ideas in modern minds
  • Use musical to control the room – and enhance learning
  • Give effective directions to get students organised quickly and keep them on task
  • Tap into, rather than push down, the energy into your classroom
  • Elicit thoughtful responses and productive conversations
