FEATURED LIVE CHAT

Wednesday September 6 Brain-Compatible Learning Chat

Join Teachers.Net for a thought-provoking live chat on the topic of Brain-Compatible Learning. All classroom environments were not created equal - find out why educators across the country are proclaiming BCL as one of the most simple yet revolutionary approaches to learning. Brain-compatible learning, pioneered by Eric Jensen and other disciples around the world, helps teachers understand the mechanisms that promote or impede learning - from simple environmental factors like lighting and sound, to complex biochemical changes and cycles experienced by our students daily. Bring your thinking cap and prepare to see your classroom in a whole new light, and join our moderator Kim Tracy Wednesday September 6 at 9pm Eastern time in the Teachers.Net Meeting Room for an exciting and informative live workshop!

Wed September 6 - 9pm Eastern/6pm Pacific Meeting Room
