This is active learning at its best. Mind games and the various learning strategies involved are motivating ways to ensure that students' the brain connections are strengthened. Recent theories based on the brain, memory, emotional intelligence, learning styles, the importance of the arts, ADD/ADHD and special education will be explored and applied.
