The Canada Goal - Art Of Focus - Senior High Schools
The Canada Goal Senior (Sr) schools (Art Of Focus) keynote guest speaker presentation is a versatile and motivating learning experience for high schools across Canada.
There are (3) main purposes:
1. To assist young learners to build, maintain and fuel the desire for lifelong learning. Using neuroscience as a reference to emphasize the importance of daily learning, participants will review the difference between thinking and thinking deeply - (The art of FOCUS). Understanding how to stimulate your mind (neurons) will help students create memories (learning) that lasts. Realizing, To Learn - is - To Live, will assist students to have a premeditated inner desire to want to learn. Teaching learners how to learn is a critical pillar to equip them with 'the tools' to make the most of their day(s). However, it appears that 'the desire' is equally important if not more of a significant factor at the root of one's ability to learn. Therefore, another main approach within The Canada Goal is to draw closer attention to self-awareness, character development, success and self-discipline. When an individual can see themselves and their efforts as capable/valuable, they're more likely to form/maintain a 'growth mindset' with the desire to succeed throughout their life journey.
2. To assist young learners to internalize and translate important words like 'respect, honesty, responsibility, commitment, success, self-discipline, mindset & integrity' into meaningful aspects of everyday life. The human mind/body will learn best when the individual is able to see themselves as valuable with the ability to look into their future with a positive attitude/perspective.
3. To assist young learners (& staff) to teach/learn in a respectful, comfortable and safe learning/working environment. Theoretically, an individual can be most productive if growing (learning) in a surrounding environment that 'feels' safe/comfortable. If the human body/mind feels threatened it is a natural inner reaction for it to prioritize energy toward protecting itself. This is valuable energy that is better spent training the mind to think (focus) deeply - creating learning (memories) that last. This learning experience will assist learners to reflect on their behaviour and evaluate how they can positively influence their leaning environment.
Uniquely focused events such as The Canada Goal will create a enriched learning environment that will help stimulate the mind for greater (short/long term) learning potential.
