"Rachael has an assured presenting style, engaging manner and above all else really knows her stuff! The feedback about her keynote speech was highly impressive and I wouldn’t hesitate to invite Rachael to speak for us again’.
Pauline Blake-Johnston, NATECLA Scotland, 2017
''I really enjoyed Rachael's talk in Madeira, not only did I learn a lot about the importance of mindfulness, but the practical examples of relaxation were perfect after a busy day at a conference. I was then able to take home what I'd learnt and my students can now benefit from a moment of calm in their day too!''
Rachael Harris, APPI Conference, Madeira, 2019
As part of the British Council Five on 5 series of webinars on World Teachers’ Day, Rachael Roberts presents a webinar Using your brain: what neuroscience can teach us about learning.
About the webinar
Considering that our brains are the key tool for learning, it is surprising how rarely teacher education focuses on neuroscience. Education is full of vague statements about only using 10% of our brains, or using the right or left brain, or being a kinaesthetic learner, but are these really based in science? In this session we look at what recent research has to tell us about learning, looking specifically at motivation and memory, and how to apply these findings in the classroom to help students learn more easily and effectively.
