a practical flip book of easy-to-use activities for any topic or subject area, and for any level of learners.

The trainer or teacher simply flips the pages until they come to the activities of their choice for each of the 4Cs Map steps – and voilá! The learning activities are “mapped” and ready to use in any learning environment.

This Book Is Not Like Any Other Facilitation Or Training Tool You May Have Previously Purchased

Ease of use and functionality were critical in designing this flipbook, to ensure this tool doesn't merely end up sitting on your shelf.

1.

Every individual technique shared is a brain-based training technique; meaning it was created with the learner in mind, and how the learner learns best!

2.

Every technique is engaging and interactive.

3.

Step by step instructions and timing estimates are provided for everything! Yes, I said timing estimates are included.

4.

If any materials or set-up is required, they are specifically called out and listed for you.

5.

More than 50% of the activities included take less than 5 minutes.

When you use 4Cs Brain-Based Instructional Model, you are consciously deciding to create an environment where learner focused education takes place, both in the real world, and virtually.

If timing is especially critical grab the spine of the book with one hand, and flip through the right side focusing directly on the time stamp, to find an activity which fits your timing constraint.

“Brain Building Blueprints is a must-have when packing my facilitators kit. It serves multiple purposes, a quick reference guide for pre-planning a workshop or responding to requests for impromptu sessions. I feel more relaxed knowing that I have this book with me, readily equipped to respond at a moment’s notice. Highly Recommended!”

Are you tired of feeling like you are lecturing to a completely disengaged audience? 

Are you tired of the traditional training methods you were taught in school?

You are not alone! AND It is not your fault.

As students and educators, we were taught that instruction looked and felt like a cold and unengaging experience where participants needed to sit still, listen, take notes, and learn.

As adult learners and experienced educators we have learned the value of traditional training methods is purely economic. 

If you truly want your learners to learn, and not just listen to you lecture, the techniques in Brain Building Blueprints Flipbook are for you.

If you genuinely want to create a leaning environment where learners learn, you need to buy this book!
