It Takes Attention to Change

Presenter: Deborah McNelis, M. Ed.

November 12, 9am AEST (and November 11, 2pm PST)

The way the brain learns and how it creates and organizes connections depends on what it focuses on. This valuable understanding can impact your teaching practices in class and generally how you interact with children. Deborah will provide practical examples of how to use this awareness of how that brain focuses in your daily interactions.

Thank you so much for providing such deep understandings, research and questioning in your early childhood webinars. I was hesitant about the quality of the webinars (I have been to enough PD courses where I walk out thinking it didn't give me anything new or thought provoking) - but your webinars are thought provoking and well laid out to progress thinking... It has truly been refreshing to be inspired and provoked as a teacher from your webinars and I thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise with me.
