Brake or Accelerator; what kids and cars have in common

Trainer: Danie Beaulieu, Ph.D.

What do kids and cars have in common? They both are controlled by two options: the brake and the accelerator. As an educator, we can help kids by praising their good behaviors (accelerator, positive reinforcement) or punishing their bad ones (brake or negative reinforcement). Is truly the accelerator the one that allows the biggest changes? This workshop will offer different ways to use the accelerator when it comes to helping children and when it is appropriate to put the brakes on! Participants will walk out with a fresh perspective on education… and on how to be the best educator for children… as for themselves!
