Event description
Teenage Kicks: Understanding the teenage brain; implications for teaching and learning

About this Event

In this session we will cover;

  • The development of the brain and look specifically at the changes that take place throughout adolescence.
  • How the changes taking place at a neural level have implications for the feelings and behaviours of the teenagers around us and what our response as educators might be.
  • In asking this question, we will look at a range of practical strategies and techniques that educators can employ in order to maximise the potential of the adolescent brain and work enrich the educational experience for all.
