reIgniteJoCo 2019 CvHS has ended
Reminder you will be building your own credit at the close of this event.  Each session will count 1.2 hours towards your credit.  You will collect certificates throughout the event to submit in MyLearningPlan at the conclusion of reIGNITE 2019. Digital Sessions will require the Digital Learning Artifact: bit.ly/jcpsdlcartifact.

Note: If you are attending with your PLC members you might consider signing up for the same reIGNITE Calibration session (Learn 1) so that you can have common language in the coming year.

Make It Brain-Based: A Toolkit for Successful Learning AVAILABLE

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Learning Objectives & Rationale: Participants will:
- Identify how the brain processes new information and learns.
- Inventory and interpret multiple brain-based practices for self-care, student learning, and a positive classroom culture.
- Experience brain-based practices during the session and evaluate them for effectiveness.
- Develop self-directed and time-bound goals for implementing brain-based practices (3 total: self-care, student learning, & classroom culture).
- Continue to generate new brain-based goals and communicate with a Brain-Based Team into the future.

No matter your role, school setting, or grade level, everyone has at least two things in common:
1. We all have a brain.
2. We all work with other people that have brains too.
Simple, yet powerful! Harnessing the power and intricacies of the human brain can enhance learning, classroom culture, and self-care. Your brain will be actively engaged during this hands-on, collaborative session as you explore how the brain learns, discover specific brain-based practices, and develop self-directed goals for implementation. You will also be immersed in the learning as you experience several brain-based practices as the learner. You will leave this session with your very own Brain-Based Toolkit to assist you in future learning and implementation. Come with your thinking caps on!

Before the session, we encourage you to research brain-based learning topics that interest you. This is not required, but encouraged. (Hint: This itself is a brain-based strategy!)

Modalities/Implementation Practices: 
During the session (and even before), participants will experience multiple brain-based strategies that I will point out including:
- Pre-Acquisition: The session description will ask participants to research brain-based topics of interest beforehand.
- Mind Map & Self-Assessment: The brain needs to know its goals and its destination. We will use a proficiency scale for this during this session that participants will also use to assess themselves on their goals after the session.
- Pre-Visualization: Participants will visualize future success before their initial learning and goal-setting. Then, we will again visualize success at the end of the session after participants have created their goals.
