Managing Time: Learning to Plan for Results Webinar

Managing Time: Learning to Plan for Results Webinar

     

This webinar is a collaboration between Kilkenny Education Centre, Cork Education Support Centre, Waterford Education Support Centre, West Cork Education Support Centre and Wexford Education Support Centre.

This webinar is suitable for teachers (upper Primary and Post Primary), Guidance Counsellors, Study Skills Co-Ordinators and parents/guardians. Time is a finite resource in all our lives. With the pressures of an over-loaded, exam-driven curriculum, showing our students how to maximise time and learn to plan is a skill that will be of immediate and lifelong benefit. This webinar will yield immediate benefits for teachers and parents/guardians in their busy lives too!

Learning Outcomes

This webinar will enable participants to;

  • Reflect on their use of time and the benefits of planning for learning,
  • Explore the link between motivation and planning,
  • Outline a range of strategies and resources to maximise time for practical use in the classroom for students’ use and in teachers’ decision-making, and
  • Demonstrate planning techniques that have been shown to optimise the brain for learning and ways they can be practised in the classroom.
