Teaching methodologies have been changing rapidly over the years. Today, audio-visual and kinesthetic techniques have replaced the Slate Board or Notebook. Today’s Students are very savvy where technology and gadgets are concerned: they tend to spend more time on their Smartphones and Laptops, rather than Paper and Pen. EduBrisk methodologies leverage on this shift in attention. On the other hand, the very core principles of Teaching have changed: from ‘Teaching’ to ‘Learning to Teach’, to ‘Learning to Learn’. As a Teacher, if you can inculcate the habit of ‘Learning to Learn’ in your Class, you leave an indelible mark as a Great Teacher. EduBrisk intends to help you achieve this goal!

Not at all! We are sure that you have successfully developed your own methods of teaching, over the years! However, we are sure you have grappled with the issue of different Students with different learning abilities in the same Classroom, and how to bring them all to the same level. What EduBrisk offers is a number of brain-friendly teaching techniques that will enhance your teaching even further! On completing the STEP Workshops and by regularly practicing our processes and methodologies, you will be able to enrich your teaching by making it a lot more interesting to your Students and at the same time, help the Slow Learners of your Class catch up with the others!
