Did you know that current research indicates that our brains both students' and adults' - are changing? Have you heard that the brain works best when the temperature is between 68 and 72 degrees? And did you know that the color palettes of yellows and pinks can improve memory, while greens and blues can help students relax and support increased concentration? Join Naomi Harm for this brain-based teaching and learning session, as she provides a roadmap of how you can infuse brain-based teaching practices throughout your school's environment. She will share how to optimize physical learning spaces and experiences so that each and every child can discover their student-driven passion and personalized learning potential.

Thanks for the presentation. I am going to use some ideas from this webinar, especially setting the tone of the class by greeting while poping up at the door.

I enjoyed the webinar and will begin the implementation of the 4-15-4-15-4 upon returning to school. Thanks for helping me better understand how the brain works and how to work with my students in a more productive manner.

lots of good strategies, it's always good for children to take a break to process, apply, reflect and engage. it is so true that especially a child who speaks two languages need more time to process information. totally recommend this webinar lots of good information.

So much of this makes sense. I may watch this again in the future to revisit her great ideas. Now, I'll be more aware of how I can make my classes more brain-engaging.

Wonderful. I think being reminded of how kids work best is what is best for the teacher too. The last ten minutes of class is not the time to start a new concept. Thank you reminding me of what is best for kids.
