'Find Your (Story) Treasure this Book Week' | #eduwebinar 26 July 2018 | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

Australia has an incredibly diverse, vibrant and fabulous children’s literary community which produces some of the most outstanding children’s books in the world and the Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) Book of the Year Awards recognise some of this exceptional talent each year. This webinar provides a personal overview of the shortlisted titles in each category and pathways to supporting resources to enrich the reading experience and provide inspiration for the 2018 theme, ‘Find Your Treasure’. Book Week celebrations provide the perfect opportunity to have books shine as treasures and Megan will share a wide range of innovative online and offline activities, many aligned with the curriculum, which will transform your library for one of those weeks in the year that libraries truly shine.

 

This webinar is relevant for primary and secondary teachers, teacher librarians and library staff, as well as anyone with an interest in children’s literature and the wonders of Book Week. Participants will gain:

  • An overview of the shortlisted titles across the award categories
  • Understanding of suitability of titles for various age ranges
  • Inspiration and suggestions for sharing the books to students and colleagues
  • Guidance in sourcing relevant resources and connecting strategies to the Curriculum
  • Awareness of electronic resources to support individual titles and Book Week celebrations
  • Access to an electronic list of the websites and their URLs to facilitate easy access after the Webinar.

Learning Styles & Neuro Linguistic Programming Distinctions

https://kb.com.au/ | Everyone has a preference for how they like information to be presented to them so they can process it with relative ease. We also have preferences for the way we analyse and evaluate information and then communicate it to others. Identifying personal learning styles is a major key to improving your performance and that of your students. When we become more familiar with learning styles we can help our students learn faster, more efficiently and easily.

 

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) can provide us with some insights into how we can learn and communicate best. 'Neuro' refers to the mind, 'Linguistic' is about language and 'Programming' is about our sequences of repetitive behaviour and how we can act with purpose. NLP modalities and submodalities can provide important distinctions that are evident in each learning style.

 

A blended learning approach will be presented as a pathway to help teachers develop teaching programs to engage students in active learning.
