Technical Strategies Context and terminology Deconstruct concepts and provide good analogies Each element in sequence Demonstration with hands-on learning Handouts
Technical Strategy 1 We provide context and terminology …so that things make sense before we start working with them
Technical Strategy 2 We deconstruct concepts and provide good analogies www.bpl.on.cawww.bpl.on.ca = 1-905-639-3661 VS.
Technical Strategy 3 We work through each element in sequence
Technical Strategy 4 We combine demonstration with hands-on learning …relevant for motor skills like the mouse
Technical Strategy 5 We provide handouts to our students …so they can listen, learn and practice rather than take notes
