“ Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think. ” - Albert Einstein -
The pandemic has forced many schools to close and move online abruptly. This has caused disruptions for all stakeholders – students, parents, teachers and administrators. From managing the short attention spans of preschoolers to motivating disengaged teens, the online school experience has brought about challenges, lessons and stresses for many. There are also concerns about the extended use of technology and devices in our children.
In this webinar, we’ll discuss the challenges of distance learning and technological use from a brain-based perspective for students from preschoolers to teens. We’ll also explore ways to maximise this experience and provide ideas to make the most for all who are learning or teaching from home. A shift in paradigm, expectations and deliverables, or a fresh way of looking at education, may help all of us to come out more successfully from this unwelcomed situation.
Attend this webinar to:
- Understand the real constraints on students’ attention and focus with home-based learning
- Explore a fresh paradigm in shifting focus from the “what” of learning to the “how” of learning, which may be more aligned with the online school experience
- Learn about the latest brain-based advices on technological use in children from preschoolers to teens
