Super MRT (Memory – Reading – Thinking)
In this hands-on workshop, you will explore various technology and non-technology techniques to stimulate and empower the learner’s brain and senses to be more focused, remember faster, speed read, and think more creatively. In the process, we will discuss how the brain learns, and how we can apply various focus and memorisation techniques to improve the learner’s ability to remember through visualisation, association and imagination. Then, we will learn how to apply the SQ3R method to enhance learner’s reading skills, and various techniques to improve their reading speed. Finally, we will explore creative minds by adventuring into 2-3 creative thinking tools. These techniques will be useful to engage students in the classroom and raise learner’s achievement and esteem.
At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
• Use at least 2 techniques to improve your focus.
