Transcript of Brain-friendly teaching

Examples of relaxation exercises:

-relaxation exercises based on movement

-relaxation exercises for supporting concentration

-relaxation exercises based on imagination and creating images

-relaxation exercises for giving more courage and strength Relaxation at the end of the lesson

AIMS: to enhance students’ satisfaction of acquiring new material, it helps to rest after the mental effort, it puts students in the good mood and give a positive sensation of the lesson Relaxation at the beginning of the lesson

AIMS: the aim is to get rid of the tension in the body, to prepare students to situations in which they have to obtain some scores, such as tests, exams Relaxation exercises, which can be used during a lesson:

-Relaxation at the beginning of the lesson

-Relaxation in the middle of the lesson

-Relaxation at the end of the lesson Example of Keyword method

New word: Voiture

Definition: car (feminine noun)

Keyword: Vulture Keyword method for learning
foreign languages

New word + key word +

definition = association, image
  Content vs context Helpful memory methods and techniques:

- visualisation

- chaining

- the method of Loci

- chunking Factors we should pay attention to so as to improve the process of memorising:

- organisation (plan of action)
- peaceful place of study
- time of day and length of study

- the peer group
- meaningfulness of task
- revision/repetition Short-term (working) memory:

- a temporary store of a limited amount if information

- on average, people can recall 7 objects arranged at random

- unless repeated, objects are lost in less than 20 seconds Our great brain has:

-1 billions of brain cells

-four individual brains in one

-two harmoniously cooporating hemispheres Bibliography

We learn through SENSES, make your students activate all of them!

REVISION and REPETITION are indispensable for brain-friendly teaching!

RELAXATION = effectiveness of both brain and body! Relaxation in the middle of the lesson

AIMS: to have a break for relaxation during the mental effort during the lesson, breaks between some elements of the lesson Mnemotechnics

All kinds of techniques that facilitate memorising, learning and storing information

Imagination and creativity

Both hemispheres of the brain working simultaneously

Action, Movement, Colours,

Ridiculous and absurd pictures

Creating associations between knew information and information which are already know, and familiar to the brain. Mnemotechnics Long-term memory:

- can store a seemingly unlimited amount of information almost indefinitely

- short-term memories become long-term memory through revision and meaningful association Short-term memory test Sensory memory:

- takes the information provided by the senses

- an ultra-short-term memory (from a few hundred milliseconds to one or two seconds)

- iconic (for visual stimuli); echoic (for aural stimuli); haptic (for touch) encoding -> storage -> retrieval Memory is a PROCESS MEMORY We learn through:
