Unlocking the Brain’s Potential
You can help all your participants learn successfully! The greatest gift an educator can give a learner is the power to unlock their learning potential. This video outlines the five Principles of Brain Friendly Learning you will incorporate in your delivery, which will empower learners to reignite their passion to learn. This video outlines the principles behind this series of videos on Brain Friendly Training.
Are Your Learners in a state ready to learn?
You may be ready to teach, but are they ready to learn? The principle of actively planning to engage learners and have them in a Resourceful Learning State is vital for true brain friendly delivery. As educators, it is incumbent upon us to plan activities that will assist learners to be mentally and attitudinally ready to learn. Understanding this principle is vital for great delivery and successful learning.
Influencing State with Auditory Activities
Can your learner hear you? Influencing a great learning State using activities with an Auditory Bias — this is the first of four videos on how to influence the Learner’s State and looks specifically at activities that can be run focusing on Auditory learners. All training needs to address all perceptual styles, and this will be expanded on in the subsequent videos to follow.
Influencing State with Visual Activities
A picture paints a thousand words. This video highlights the importance of catering to the Visual needs of learners and gives six very practical ways to assist the Learners with a Visual bias.
Influencing State with Kinesthetic Activities
Get them up and get them moving! This is the key to engaging learners with a Kinesthetic bias. This video gives various ways to get ‘K’s into a resourceful learning state with actions and words. You will also be introduced to the activity of the Spinning Wheel, a great, interactive sharing activity.
Influencing State with Tactile Activities
‘Tactiles’ need to fiddle to learn! Tactile learners need to fiddle or manipulate with their hands to help keep their minds open and alert and their brains busy working. It is very helpful (for these types of learners) if you can provide objects for them to touch and handle. This video will give you some practical ideas of how others have done this for their Tactile students.
Use Language to Influence
Use language to persuade! Learn to use language to covertly get things done. There are words and phrases that we can use to get things done, whilst moving someone from a ‘passive’ to an ‘active’ State.
Use language that assumes success! Here is another great linguistic skill that can subconsciously build the learner’s confidence. Training is successful if it leads to action, and embedded commands are a great way to assist this transfer.
