Brain-Friendly Teaching and Learning in Your Think Tank Library
In this webinar, new and effective approaches to learning and teaching in the school library program were shared. This one hour could transform your library into a Think Tank! With strong rationale for brain-based learning coming from successful practice, neuroscience, and standards reform, presenters Paige Jaeger and Mary Ratzer explored why and how it works. They took a close look at what a child’s brain – if it could talk – would say about optimal learning, along with an array of everyday practice to turn a library into a Think Tank. Paige and Mary showed how real world learning plans can serve as instructional models. Creating a brain-based learning and teaching dynamic in your library can begin with this close and real world view. Exploring both elementary and secondary Think Tank learning plans, in multiple disciplines, a complete package comes together, ready to adapt by an innovative school librarian. A straightforward recipe for brain-based learning and teaching was the take away big idea. View the webinar to learn how to transform your school library into a Think Tank!
