It is now more important than ever before to understand how we learn.
To help meet the needs of our evolving educational landscape, UP for Learning is hosting a series of online training sessions for educators and those partnering with youth in learning experiences that focus on
• the impact of stress on learning,
• the power and impact of positive self-talk,
• and how the brain learns.
The central goal of this series is to better understand how the brain learns and effective brain-based practices and strategies for teaching and learning. Participants will explore the impact of mindset, metacognition and motivation on learning so they can help increase students’ potential for learning and life.
Following each live training, participants will be provided with a lesson and resources they can immediately implement with youth to help them become more effective learners in any setting.
