A workshop on ‘Whole Brain Thinking’ was conducted by Dr. Shankar Goenka, country head Wow Factors India for the teachers of Manav Rachna International School Sector 21-C Faridabad, on 16th May, 2013. In the workshop, the teachers learnt how to create an ideal teaching and learning environment for a child. Dr. Goenka highlighted that on an
average, human beings use only
4% of their brains and how they can maximise its usage. He further dwelled on the functions of the left and right brain, their characteristics, thinking preference and how they can help in bringing the ‘wow factor’ in the class room. There were few interesting activities involved in which the teachers could assess their own thinking preferences.
The workshop concluded with the school Principal Ms. Ikwinder S. Singh felicitating the guest with a vote of thanks and a green token of thought. She also motivated the teachers to use innovative techniques to enhance classroom teaching and learning.
