You can lead a brain to logic but you can't make it think.
Let's be honest. We've all planned stimulating lessons only to be welcomed with a class full of half-asleep students. Through brain-based research we know that students learn best when neural connections are made by connecting new concepts to those that are familiar. We also know that multiple learning experiences help make new neural connections more efficient.
What does all of this mean for educators? We need to ensure our instruction is connected to students, allows for multiple opportunities for students to learn, and differentiated.

We have been asked to pilot the student research database Net Trekker for the district.
Please see Laura for a login. we also have 50 student preview accounts so we can use it in a research project!
NetTrekker is exploring new ways to engage students through personalized learning, including the development of a student productivity tool set called netToolbox. Schedule a collaboration with the library or try it on your own!!
netTrekker connects students to the most relevant digital resources for engaging them in a learning experience that supports their unique needs. netToolbox extends this effort by helping students manage and showcase the information they find.
netToolbox guides students through the process of creating a project in three easy steps. Students will:
1.RESEARCH a topic
2.ORGANIZE their notes, and
3.PRESENT their findings in a variety of formats.
