The #1 Attended Brain-Based Course in the World for a Reason:
It Works! You Can Make a Real Difference.

Brain research applied to education is no longer an experiment. It’s been a trend for over 25 years and it’s not going away. Harvard University now offers Brain-Based Master’s and Doctoral degrees. You can add this exciting new content (AND STRATEGIES) into your skill set or fall behind. Do not let your students, and the latest research pass you by.

This leading-edge training gives you:

    1. The latest practical research in educational neuroscience
    2. Specific, differentiated classroom-ready applications that skyrocket student learning
    3. Role modeling so you can see, hear and feel HOW the strategies are used to boost classroom success
    4. Quality, research-based and classroom-proven strategies

Learn from a world leader who knows the material AND role models the application of it right before your eyes.

Up on the latest brain research? You may be surprised at what’s new. But you can fast-forward to the cutting edge of learning.

Here’s a sampling:

INSIGHT #1: Everybody’s on the Mozart bandwagon. But did you know there’s new research that suggests there are two easy-to-use strategies far better than Mozart for improving learning? Find out the real inside information on “music and the brain” on day five of your workshop.

INSIGHT #2: Learn the all-time best strategies for building and embedding lasting memory. You’ll learn these on day two of the workshop. More importantly, we’ll apply them throughout the course to insure you remember key ideas for immediate application.

INSIGHT #3: Find out the world’s twelve most powerful learning principles. Engage these principles and your job stress will be cut in half and results will skyrocket. Find out what they are on day one of this remarkable course.

INSIGHT #4: How do you get 100+ practical strategies? It’s simple. You’ll be in a fever-pitched, sock-hopping milieu of like-minded, learners who generously share tried and true, work-tested ideas. In short, by learning from others, you’ll get more ideas than you can use in a year.

INSIGHT #5: Why less is more when it comes to learning. Everywhere the new standards are in: more and more content is demanded. But something’s wrong–you can push all the content you want but what are the brain’s constraints? And just as importantly, what is the one single subject in which more IS better? In fact, you can triple the content and your learners will soak it up and want more. Discover brain-compatible curriculum secrets on day six.

INSIGHT #6: What’s the #1 STRONGEST influence on learning? Is it genes, past experiences, parents or learning styles? All of those contribute, but surprisingly, none of them are at the top of the list! Find out the answer on day three.

INSIGHT #7: How can you engage your audience every single time? These brain chemicals are key: serotonin, GABA, cortisol, glutamate, norepinephrine and dopamine. These chemicals can be influenced…if you know how. We’ll give you these amazing insider skills and show you how to do it.

INSIGHT #8: Neuroscientists are very explicit about what really enriches the brain. But not one teacher in 1000 knows the most critical factor in making it happen. Learning how to translate that research is the trick. Find out how on day three.

INSIGHT #9: Exercise affects learning many ways–but is it that critical, or just a frill? Find out what the real reason is to exercise at school…the one not being talked about. Why? They’re not up on the latest research. But you will be right on the cutting edge for six fabulous days.

INSIGHT #10: There’s a chemical imbalance in the brain responsible for certain discipline problems. Find out how to impact these chemicals in this amazing training.

What is Brain-Based Learning?
Not 1 in 100 Educators REALLY Knows!

Unfortunately, most educators think brain-based learning is simply knowing about axons, dendrites and synapses. That’s “old school” and it’s ridiculous! Brain-based learning is the process of thoughtfully implementing purposeful strategies based on research derived from a synergy of sizzling cutting-edge disciplines. They include, but are not limited to: cognitive neuroscience, chemistry, nutrition, social neurosciences, biology, pharmacology, computational sciences, quantum systems thinking, and artificial intelligence modeling.

More has been discovered about the brain and mind in the last 20 years than in all of recorded history. Yet, 99% of the teachers have no clear understanding of how the brain learns, remembers and behaves except on a superficial basis. Sadly, this lack of knowledge leaves the average educator with an education formulated in, and designed for, the last century. But there’s hope.

When you attend a Jensen Learning program, you’ll discover the genuine “Brain-Based Learning” in a completely new way. Why? Your presenter, Eric Jensen, is a twenty-year veteran of the brain-based field. He’s trained more people, written more books and innovated more than anyone in the field. Second, every principle, every idea and strategy is role-modeled so you can see it, hear it and feel HOW it works.

This program is literally, teaching with the brain in mind. It is purposeful, dynamic and easy to implement. The scientific, research-based teaching that BBL advocates involves the use of ten fundamental brain-mind principles. Each of these has been well supported by rigorous, quality scientific studies. These principles are revealed to you through activities, case study, lectures, video and discussion. Each of these principles is so powerful, that implementing even half of them will make a mind-blowing difference in your work. But don’t take my word for it. Listen to what one of our participants has said…

“This is a workshop all teachers should be required to attend! Understanding how kids learn will have a huge impact on how I teach.”
L. Allen, Marshfield, MO

This program is a dynamic overview of Eric Jensen’s newly revised book Teaching with the Brain in Mind. This course provides specific, practical brain-compatible strategies for all educators. All teachers influence their students. Now you can discover what it takes for students to acquire complex learning and achieve their best. You’ll want to learn these essential rules for how our brain works.

By the way, have you decided to attend yet? I hope so. In your career, you get back from it what you put into it. What other investment could you make that will accelerate your career into the 21st century? Can you afford to go? It’s more a case of “Can you afford NOT to go?” Read this true story…

“I took your 6-day Brain-Based Learning workshop a few summers ago in San Antonio. I was blown away. My wife said I couldn’t stop talking each night about what I had learned that day. I was so much anticipating going back to the classroom and applying what I was learning. I had read some of your books and utilized the ideas in the past, but being in the workshop was such a shot in the arm. My enthusiasm skyrocketed. It was easy applying the ideas to my classes. The kids would tell you it made a difference!” G. Kubina, Mobile, AL

If you’ve read this far, you KNOW it’s for you. And besides, it’s risk-free. You’ve got a satisfaction or money back guarantee. So, go for it, before the workshop is filled & you have to wait another year. Your future is important and this may insure its success.

To Your Success,

Eric Jensen

Eric Jensen, President, Jensen Learning

P.S. This workshop is especially powerful for you if your school’s not performing up to standards. Why? Because you’ll get the powerhouse tools you need the most to help create a school-wide turnaround. The reason your kids aren’t achieving is simple… If you’re not teaching in ways that work WITH instead of AGAINST the brain, learning goes down. Learn how to foster optimal learning. Come to the workshop, bring your supervisor, principal, colleagues, even a policy-maker! But register soon, the word’s out already.

P.P.S. Regarding the upcoming workshop, did I mention that when you register 5 or more from your school attend, you save 10% on each ticket! Just as important, more staff increases your chances of implementation.

Simply register online. And, do it today, before it fills up and you have to wait another year!

Oh, by the way, listen to what another participant said…

“Heartedly encourage & recommend to others. The brain & learning is what we should consider first, before implementing 21st century skills, or any other pedagogy.”
C. Barrington, Airdrie, Alberta, Canada

P.P.P.S. Do it now. This course gets better every year and the revised program is guaranteed to be the very best ever. Join us for a great 6 days. Complete the registration below and get started today. You’ll be glad you did!
