1 BRAIN-BASED LEARNING MEETING THE NEEDS OF ALL LEARNERS: Archdiocese of Dubuque Technology Curriculum Leaders *An internet connection will be necessary to visit the links included in this PPT. NEXT

2 In Trail 2 of the Archdiocese TCL program, you'll be learning about the brain. But what do you already know? Click on the link below for a quick test of your prior knowledge. Discover Curiosity Brain Quiz The quiz will open in a new window. When you are finished, close the window and return to this PPT. NEXT

3 So... how did you do? During the coming year, you'll be learning a bit about the anatomy and physiology of the brain. What you learn about the structures within the brain and how they work, will help you to understand how learning actually occurs. NEXT

4 You will learn how the brain receives, processes, stores and retrieves information. Once you have a basic understanding of this, you'll be more likely to understand why some instructional strategies are more "brain-compatible" than others. NEXT

5 Here’s a brief clip that will set the stage for this year’s Brain-Based Learning class. Just click on the picture below. *When finished, close the You Tube window and return to this PPT. NEXT (2:38 min)

6 One thing I'm certain you've heard is that exercising the brain is every bit as important as exercising the body. Click on the button below to visit the Brain Curls website. This site has a variety of free games to try- games that strengthen your visual memory, recall, processing speed, and much more. Check out a few of these, finding at least three that you like. These games will exercise your brain, and you may find some that would benefit your students’ brains, as well. *After trying several games, close the window and return to this PPT. NEXT

7 Feel free to explore the Wikispace that I created specifically for our Brain-Based Learning class. This will be your “one stop shop” for receiving and sharing information related to our class. Here you will find information about assignments, and how to post them to the site as you complete them. You’ll be able to see the work of your classmates, and hopefully get some good ideas from them. The Wiki will also allow us to communicate with one another between sessions. Click on this link to explore our BBL Wiki now. Sign-in by clicking on “Participants ” Then click on EDIT, and add your name to the list that begins with MY name. NEXT

8 Thanks for playing around with this intro to Brain-Based Learning. I’m looking forward to meeting you and beginning what I know will be another great year with the TCL program. Julie Crotty I LOVE teaching about- & continuing to learn about- the human brain! My hope is that your participation in Brain-Based Learning will spark your own interest in & curiosity about the brain. The ultimate goal is to better understand the students in our classrooms, so that we can teach in ways that take advantage of how their brains learn. See you soon! 4
