This workshop will investigate the concept of teaching young people about their brain. It will focus on how building an understanding of the learning brain and the emotion brain assists students in regulating their behaviour and in enhancing their skills as a learner. It will explore strategies students can utilise to move from the emotion brain to the learning brain. It will also explore strategies for teaching students about how they can develop new pathways in their brain. A young person’s ability to do this is not only integral to their learning progress but in also being socially and emotionally competent.

Key Concepts will include:

  • The importance of creating an environment where students are operating from their “learning brain”.
  • Linking emotions with improved learning outcomes.
  • Helping students recognise when they are in the emotion brain or learning brain.
  • Teaching students about the pathways in their brain.
  • Practical strategies for the classroom.
