CREATIVE LEARNING TECHNIQUES

"I am looking for a method where the teacher teaches less and the student learns more."
Johann Amos Comenius
"A drill is an instrument for boring."

Teachers and facilitators who want to teach more effectively and motivate their students use brain friendly learning in their classrooms.

They appeal to:

  • the left - logical, analytical - and the right - global, (w)holistic - brain hemispheres
  • all of the senses and the various learning styles (visual, auditory, kinaesthetic, as well as Howard Gardner's "Multiple Intelligences"
  • the students' sense of and need for good communication, cooperation and emotional intelligence

In other words:
Brain Friendly Learning is learning with the mind, the body and the emotions.

The results? A higher and fast success rate among learners. Retention and recall of material as well as long-term memory increase. The creativity, learning and social competence as well as the students' sense of well-being is heightened and enhanced. Learning in a positive environment results in a high level of motivation – not only in the students but in teachers as well.  And motivation - as every teacher knows - is the key  to success in the classroom.

This seminar presents a variety of creative, playful and interactive learning activities - songs, music, movement, art, drama, games, rhythm - as well as relaxation and visualization activities, for teaching new material. All of the activities can be adapted for use in any subject. Our main goal is to rediscover and convey to our students the joy of learning.
