Brain-friendly learning with Emily Bell!
E.M. Forster wrote: “Spoon feeding, in the long run, teaches us nothing but the shape of the spoon.” In this workshop, we will look at different ways to engage the brain, and why we might want to. We will look at practical activities you can do as teachers, and tasks you can take into the classroom. Be prepared to do some yoga - but don't worry, no special clothes required, and you won't be asked to touch your toes!
