Imagine trying to wipe down a countertop with a sponge that’s already soaking wet. What happens? You going to get a lot of puddles and sticky spots, and there’s likely to be a whole mess of stuff left behind when you’re done. Cognitive overload works much the same way — because our brains simply can’t absorb new information when the mental sponge is full. This week’s episode talks about ways that teachers can help reduce the oversaturation in our classrooms.
Recorded in bumper-to-bumper traffic to and from my daily work as a high school instructional coach just outside of Washington D.C., Talk to Mee in the Car is where a brainstorm and a good old-fashioned brain dump collide to help educators hone their skills and become leaner, meaner, 21st century teaching machines. Join me for a quick hitting 11(ish) minute episode every Monday for tips, tricks, and strategies to change the game in your classroom TODAY with high-energy, student-centered teaching that actually works.
Because one size fits all professional development simply doesn’t.
