What can teachers do to dramatically enhance student memory and learning in the EFL classroom? Five easy steps will be provided for teachers to take home and put on their classroom walls. This session will discuss and explore provocative new discoveries in brain research and learning. The content, stemming from the presenter's research at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, is cutting-edge yet highly practical. Plenty of powerful take-home activities for your EFL classroom make your life easier, and your students happier with techniques from this neuro-'logical ' workshop. There will be a good balance between theory and practical applications -some fun "hands-on" too!
