Making Learning Stick

I’ve just completed a book study on Made to Stick by Chip Heath and Dan Heath which is a good read.

In the book Made to Stick, the Heath brothers share six key attributes: Simplicity, Unexpectedness, Concreteness, Credibility, Emotions, and Stories – SUCCESs for presenting content in such a way that others will remember ‎it‎. ‎Whether you work with students, teachers, community members or all ‎of the above, these strategies can help you to more effectively share your ‎ideas and core content for long term understanding‎.‎

I have embedded the videos for all of you to get a taste of it. It takes a while to load so please be patient.
