Establishing Early Engagement


Facilitate learning to be powerful & impactful supporting long term recall

Hook them, captivate them, keep them engaged - excite, motivate & engage learners.

There are 5 big 'States' for learning which active the brain’s chemicals, functions and neuro-centres to maximise learning outcomes. These include: peptide molecules, amino acids, parietal and frontal lobe engagement, noradrenalin, amygdale engagement, cortisol, dopamine and many others. A smorgasbord of chemicals to either enhance or hinder learning. Learn how to “Hook ’em early and get ’em curious” with a natural, brain chemically-enhanced experience of excitement, curiosity, fun and wonder.

Begin your session by getting them curious. Stimulate the desire to learn the answer to a problem, thus activating the reward system of the brain. So that, even before the answer is given, the state of curiosity provides a reward and a positive feeling. The Reticular Activation System (or RAS) of the brain is engaged, as is the Parietal and Frontal lobes - the human thinking part of our brain.

We will experience simple ways to achieve this Early Engagement with some good framing-up activities. We need to get learners mentally and attitudinally present in the room, as well as physically there. These processes are simple, refreshing, practical and totally relevant to the challenges of teaching today.

Refresh and upgrade your skills, and excite your students to learn … and keep on learning !
