View All Workshops
When: 11-03-2018 (Saturday) 09:00AM to 03:30PM

Learning is a neurobiological process. Academic works and social behavior are products of the learning process. Most learners think with a visual meta-cognition based on learning processes; but, most educational programs utilize auditory methods to teach students to imitate, copy, repeat, practice, transfer, and test. These auditory methods utilize an educational approach that is not brain friendly for most learners. This workshop will provide information on how to change academic programs to include all learners’ thinking processes. Examples from classrooms as well as from individual student work will be provided. Intermediate Level.

Key Concepts: Project learning, Event-Based-Learning, language strategies, visual thinkers, conceptual learning, inclusive practice
Learner Objectives: Participants will be able to: 1) Flow chart out an event; 2) Explain one application for how to draw concepts in real time for student(s) to emphasize process over product
