      “EXCITE, ENGAGE AND EMPOWER” with our Targeted Programs

              

The “WENZIT Working” Series

The “WENZIT Working” programs target discussions about the importance of intrinsic motivation and metacognition for confidence, healthy self-esteem and lifelong learning.  Realising the importance of brain health sets the platform for informed choice. Understanding the basis for emotion and behaviour builds confidence and empathy. Learning how to learn empowers individuals.   “WENZIT” is a way to remember some general principles – Water, Exercise, Nutrition, Zeds, Intrinsic Motivation and Thinking about Thinking.

The “Science for Their Futures” Programs

The Science programs target discussions on the need for general scientific literacy in the community and the understanding that science is simply one way to explain the world around us. There is a heavy emphasis on the research regarding misconceptions and threshold concepts in general science and in biology, and on “big picture” delivery of the curriculum based on the principles of neuroeducation. The aim is to investigate the delivery of science education that prepares students for life and makes science available to the community.

Metacognition, or learning how to learn, is a most empowering tool.

Realising the importance of brain health sets the platform for informed choice. Understanding the basis for emotion and behaviour builds confidence and empathy. Active Axons programs and services have been developed to complement the work of other specialists in this field and are constantly evolving. Participants will be actively involved in examining a range of strategies that could be implemented in classrooms, workplaces and communities.

  • Excite about the possibilities
  • Engage in the process
  • Empower to take responsibility

 

Regardless of our heredity, socioeconomic status, culture or age, each of us has a right to know what we are capable of achieving. We also have a responsibility to learn how to make informed choices for ourselves and for better futures for our families and communities.

Quality learning for living can be provided to all. Current multidisciplinary research into how the brain learns and processes information is informing debate on creating learning environments and working conditions that can engage and empower all individuals in our diverse population. Making this research accessible to educators, health workers, professional and amateur sportspeople, students, families and business leaders is the aim of Active Axons Education and Training. The great message is that the success of our learning experiences is something over which we have a great deal of control.

We can, and do, build our own brains. We can all learn to be the site managers of this most important, life-long construction process.

We are privileged to be part of the evolving nature of “best practice”.  Active Axons programs and services have been developed to complement the work of other specialists in these fields and are constantly evolving.
