This is Your Brain.

This is Your Brain on Agile Games.

The Neurology of Effective Learning 

Presented by: Laura Powers

The Agile Apocalypse has already happened. Agile workshops from Boston to Bangalore have been overrun by Agile Zombies whose brains exploded from too much Powerpoint. 
Fortunately, there is a ray of hope. A small band of Agilists have discovered a more humane way to teach. Games, simulations, and interactive exercises revive the brains of Powerpoint Zombies - leading to better learning that sticks.
Join us in this session to discover the "neurological why" behind effective agile games and "how" to use it to design even more effective games & workshops.  Leave with new ideas and strategies to put into action with your next group.
This workshop is based on Bernice McCarthy's 4Mat System of Learning, Dr. Judy Willis' book "Research-Based Strategies to Ignite Student Learning", Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) from the Association for Integrative Psychology, and Sharon Bowman's work on "Training from the Back of the Room."
