Brain Friendly Learning - gets results!

This month we're excited to share learners' successes, through using brain friendly tips. Our recent application to have our events accredited (see below), prompted us to re-visit the results we achieve, to check that our learners are achieving the same - and better!

Below, we list eight reasons why brain friendly learning (BFL) works and some of the results our learners have shared. If you, or an organisation you work with, aren't getting these results consistently, is now a good time to ask 'what can we do differently?'

Have you seen?

Wordle is a toy for generating word clouds from text that you provide. It's great for stimulating the linguistic and visual-spatial intelligences.

1) BFL speeds design - achieved by switching from materials-centred delivery to learner-centred activity;     2) BFL inspires creativity - a recent design about risk and reward now features on the BBC website RAW;     3) BFL cuts costs - reduction in workplace accidents;     4) BFL saves time - delivery times reduced by half;     5) BFL improves memory - 100% exam pass rates;     6) BFL ensures learning transfer - measurable results within 24 hours;    7) BFL is easier to digest - especially proven with learning which is tough, technical or tortuous;     8) BFL enhances personal achievement -
pay rises and increased fees realised!
