Opening Keynote for 2011 Advancing the STEM Agenda Conference-ppt Powerpoint Handout
Abstract: Presentation slides from the Opening Keynote QLS: Quality as a Second Language by Michele Brinn. Presented July 20, 2011 at the Education Division's Advancing the STEM Agenda Conference.
The presentation shows success stories about using the tools of quality and innovation in the early grades to help students understand the learning process and enjoy learning. Learning a second language at a young age optimizes learning potential, helps to shape the brain, and is cognitively easier than later in life. Learning the principles and tools of Quality as a young child will lead to “native–like fluency” and will lay the foundation for STEM success.
