WD_header

Fredi Lajvardi’s MIT-beating robotics teams have usually been comprised of students – often undocumented – who have grown up in poverty.  They have also included students with learning differences and mental/behavioral challenges.  He asks them to dream “what am I capable of?”

Watch Fredi Lajvardi describe how students who are “wired differently” can benefit from STEM-related activities.

Fredi Lajvardi will present a keynote session at the Wired Differently Conference Las Vegas – which includes the Innovative Teaching Strategies Conference, the School Discipline Conference and the Girl Bullying Conference.  Registrants can attend any Summit session on a space-available basis.

Dopamine…Acetylcholinem…and Fun

Posted on Updated on

ITS_LOGO

In an age of Common Core rigor, educators are rediscovering the power of fun.  Brain research shows that when classroom activities are pleasurable, the brain releases dopamine, a neurotransmitter that stimulates memory centers and promotes the release of acetylcholinem, which increases focused attention.  Tools such as LEGO Education’s MINDSTORM robotics technology/curriculum are designed to increase fun and engagement while facilitating learning, thinking and problem-solving.

See how robotics technology enhances student engagement.

Building upon 30 years of student engagement, Innovative Teaching Strategies Sponsor/Presenter LEGO Education offers a hands-on, minds-on approach that helps students actively take ownership of the learning process and develop skills such as creative thinking and problem-solving.

The Innovative Teaching Strategies Conference provides an opportunity for teachers, administrators, curriculum directors and other educators to learn about new insights and strategies for reaching and teaching students PreK-12. It emphasizes evidence-based and novel instructional practices from national-exemplary programs.

Prevention, Not Intervention” in Atlanta and Niagara Falls.

Webinar: How to Use Color to Unlock Students’ Thoughts & Perceptions (K-6)

Posted on

via Developmental Resources, Inc..

What You Will Learn

Some students do not find it easy to communicate their real inner perceptions, thoughts and feelings. Students may “shut down” and “clam up.” What you think might be a productive interaction turns into a challenging endeavor to obtain ANY information from the student.

Color-based counseling activities provide powerful methods for helping in these situations.  Color has been known to have positive psychological and therapeutic effects. It has been used to understand underlying emotional language and evoke specific mood or feelings since ancient Egypt. As early as the year 980, color has been used as a tool in alternative medicine to help treat disease. Today, an understanding of the psychological effects of color is widely used in business, hospitals and correction institutions. When counseling children, color-based methods can enhance the effectiveness of the interaction.  For example, using simple directive and non-directive coloring-based activities, students can feel less threatened and more able to communicate their unfiltered inner experiences, thoughts and feelings.

In this insightful and creative 90-minute webinar, Anthony Pearson (elementary school counselor, child therapist and author), will guide participants through different ways to use fun color-based activities designed to facilitate avenues of more meaningful dialogue with students. He will provide several key insights and recommendations for using these kinds of activities in different situations in one-on-one counseling, in groups and in the classroom.

Types of Color-Based Activities Discussed Include:

  • Emotive Designs
  • Scene Finishing
  • Color the Feeling Faces (& Places)
  • Show Where the Feeling Is
  • The Magic Mirrors
  • Graph/Chart My Feelings

You Will Learn:

  • Benefits of using color-based activities in counseling children.
  • Do’s and don’ts of using visual arts as a therapeutic tool in various counseling situations.
  • Current best practices in using color in counseling.
  • Insights and tips for using six types of color-based counseling activity types with children.
  • Applications for implementing color-based activities in individual sessions.
  • Key strategies to harness the power of these activities in classroom and/or small group lessons.
  • How to use art activities to help prompt dialogue and personal discovery.

You Will Also Receive
