Help For The Lazy and Uninterested Learner
1st July 2021, Thursday
8:30pm to 9:30pm (Singapore Time)
We all dream of having hardworking learners, eager to acquire new knowledge and curious about the world. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Laziness, disinterest in school or learning are common complaints we hear from parents. Is there, in fact, a “lazy” or “uninterested” brain? What drives some learners to cherish every learning opportunity while others to avoid them as much as they can?
We should think of laziness and uninterested behaviours not as character traits but as symptoms. This means we need to seek to uncover the cause or causes behind these undesirable behaviours. Understanding the root causes can be incredibly useful to adults as we help uninterested learners gravitate towards a more productive learning experience.
Join us at this webinar as we explore the brain basis of lazy and uninterested behaviours. Understanding our brain – the roots and drivers of human behaviours – can help equip us with more positive and constructive strategies to help our learners stretch their potential and achieve more in life.
Attend this webinar to:
- Uncover how laziness and uninterested behaviours are symptoms, not character traits
- Understand the brain drivers of lazy and uninterested behaviours
- Take home research-based strategies to help our learners enjoy learning and lead more productive lives
