Just putting teachers into teams isn't enough! Thanks to technology and so many innovations in brain research and the study of human performance, we can employ strategies that help every team in school work more effectively! This session isn't just about teaching teams to get along. It's about using tactical, research-based strategies to unleash the untapped individual and team brain power available in every school! Get connected, get creative and innovate! This session is fun, highly interactive and leaves the audience with easily applied tools they can use right away to work together better than ever! Perfect for schools that are already doing teaming or PLCs and are looking for strategies to take their performance to the next level! This can also be a good general session topic for those schools who want to get more connected and collectively focused.
