Expect the unexpected
Make your training fun and interesting! The Brain is naturally curious and loves fun. This video is full of ideas to stimulate the Brain’s good adrenalins (noradrenaline) so that your students are alert and having fun, whilst not quite knowing what is coming next. You will have fun yourself watching learners loving being a part of your training and them telling others how good it was.
Masking Tape – A great training tool
Use this technique to find out ‘Who’s Who in the Zoo’! Here is a simple tool that quickly allows the Educator to understand who is in their group. You can ask any question and get an immediate result, both visually for yourself, and also for all the participants. Maybe you want to know what experience they each have; or to help them to articulate what they would like from the training. You ask the question, and they commit to the answer.
What do they know already? The Principles of Adult Learning say that you need to build on ‘existing knowledge’. That’s fine, but how do you know what they know already? This video suggests some simple, engaging activities to use so that the Educator can quickly gauge the room and glean an understanding of what the students are thinking, and where the Educator needs to take them.
Using Playing Cards
Simple ways to involve all your students! A simple pack of playing cards has huge potential as an engagement tool. As simple as these are, they have great uses in the training room to engage and motivate your students. This video is full of practical ideas on how you might use playing cards to generate fun and involvement. Your students’ brains will love you for it.
Doing vs Consuming
It can’t be a talk fest. This is a very important principle in Brain Friendly Training when we aim to help learners form patterns in their brain which they can call upon when they need to recall information. The aim of the training game should be to continually place the ball in the learner’s court. This video also suggests ideas on how we can get the learners using their smart phones as teaching tools.
Revisions Part 1
How to revise – easy methods to use! There is a secret in how to revise and build retention for your students. This video explains the revision timetable that embeds learning in the brain quickly and for long term retention. It also has six practical ways to make revision fun and enjoyable for your group, and they will not even know they are revising.
Revisions Part 2
Let’s look back and ‘Revise the Revision’! In this module we will revise the ideas shared in Revisions Part 1, and explain three more very useful activities to engage learners in revision — and again they will have no idea that this is what they are doing!
Rich and Multi-Sensory
There is more than one way to ‘skin a cat’! Mono-sensory makes no sense. If we train using a multi-sensory approach we assist students to store information in a multitude of sensory cortexes, so that they have a wide range of areas of the brain to call on when they have to retrieve that information. Be prepared to experience an example of this multi-sensory approach in this video.
Caution when using PowerPoint
Beware the risks with overuse of PowerPoint! This video alerts you to these dangers and gives you ideas of how you can make your PowerPoints work for the Learner, to complement and enhance the Learning.
