  • Good afternoon, everyone.  Thank you for joining today’s webinar.  We’ll start in 1 minute.<OK it’s 12pm, let’s get started>
  • Welcome to our October Talks on Tuesdays webinar, “Building Little Brains…Better.” I’m Dana Childress from the Integrated Training Collaborative, and I’m joined by Dr. John Almarode. Some of you may know John from his exciting Brain Way workshops. I attended one of this trainings last year and had never been to a training where I spent hardly any time at all sitting down! John has been an educator and staff developer for many years and has consulted both nationally and internationally on brain-based teaching strategies for all ages. John is currently a faculty member at James Madison University in the College of Education and we are delighted to have him join us today.
  • Before we get started, though, we want to familiarize those of you who are new to our webinars with the technology. We know that many of you have joined us before and are probably pros at this, but for those who are joining us for the first time, let’s go through a few quick housekeeping pointers.  As you may have heard when you called in, all lines will be muted during the call. We encourage you to make comments and ask questions using the chat feature that you’ll find to the right of your screen.
  • To use the chat feature, click the mouse in the box in the lower right corner of your screen, type a message, and hit enter. Let’s try that now by having everyone type in his or her favorite color. Please do keep in mind that anything you type in the chat box will be public and will be seen by everyone. As we move through John’s presentation, there will be opportunities for you to respond to questions using your chat box. If you have a question during the webinar, feel free to type it in, and we’ll also try to respond as we go along. There will also be a Q&A time at the end of the webinar when you can ask questions. Any questions we miss during the presentation will also be addressed then too.
  • Another feature we want to be sure you take advantage of is the full screen feature. If you want to view the slides in a full screen mode, click the button below this slide with the 4 arrows on it. This button will expand your screen. You will lose the ability to see the chat when you’re in full screen mode, but you can click “escape” at any time to return the screen to the view that you see here.
  • Following this webinar, you’ll receive an email asking you to complete a brief survey to give us feedback. We really do value your feedback so please take a few moments and let us know about your experience participating in the webinar. This will help us as we improve future webinars and develop other resources for you. Okay, that takes care of the housekeeping. Are there any questions at this point?  We are ready to learn about building little brains, so I’ll turn things over to John.
  • Introduction and overview of the session.
