Recording of Friday’s Class

One of the benefits of Virtual Conferences/Professional Development sessions is that it can be recorded. The recording allows you to control the pace, finding the moments you want to watch again.

July 8th Session – Access the Elluminate vOffice recording:

Respecting the Brain.

What do we know about the brain and how does what we know (or think we know) drive how we teach. John Medina and his book Brain Rules breaks the latest brain research into 12 principles/rules. His book is a great read and it is supported by companion DVD. Much of the video content on the DVD is shared on his website @BrainRules.net. On this site you can access information/activities to support all 12 principles/rules by selection the icon at the top of the media window.

Check out this news report that does a great job of summarizing the book.
