Recent research into how the human brain works is encouraging integrated thinking and learning and inspiring classroom techniques and activities. In March 2004, author Tony Buzan hosted a day of workshops and seminars which introduced staff and children from Kent to whole brain accelerated learning techniques. This programme shares some of the multi-sensory approaches demonstrated that day and returns six months later to find out how teachers and pupils from Charing School near Ashford were inspired. Year 6 teacher Anne Plummeridge discusses the versatility of Mind Mapping, a graphic technique for recording information and generating new ideas. Headteacher Rosemary Olley explains the benefits of a cross-curricular approach which seems to reflect the associative way in which the brain works. An educational neuroscientist discusses some of the foundations of multi-sensory pedagogies.
