At Home With MARGE: Exploring Shimamura's approach to learning

Season 2, Episode 39,   Jun 11, 2021, 07:19 AM

Teaching and learning are something that has been happening since the dawn of time – or thereabouts. And we do it all the time in non-school contexts, as do our children. But that doesn’t mean, necessarily that the things we need to learn stick, especially when there is an entire world of excitement and interest out there competing for our attention. So, just how can we focus our efforts and be more deliberate about our learning?

This week we’re looking at what was called a whole-brain learning approach and how it can help students.

Nathan McGurl, Founder of The Study Buddy, is joined by Nimish Lad. A Physics teacher by training, Nimish is an experienced and passionate senior leader with a particular interest in curriculum design, research and leadership. In addition to maintaining a blog – researcher teacher – Nimish is about to release his first book – Shimamira’s MARGE: Model for Learning in Action.
