Through personal interviews, teacher discussions, and classroom video footage, this workshop encourages you to analyze existing theories about how children learn, as well as your own beliefs, and then examine how those beliefs might influence your teaching. Each workshop features a different educator's learning theory and provides the opportunity to discuss, critique, and apply the ideas presented.
This video workshop on how children learn for K-12 teachers and administrators consists of eight one-hour video programs, an online workshop guide. Review the course work requirements and the supporting website for more information.
