Yesterday the SkillCorps team supported the staff of Kaizora by presenting information on Natural Environment Teaching (NET). NET occurs when teachers use student interests and engagement within their natural environment to create learning opportunities for the students. The training included examples of practical applications of NET, the importance of motivation during teaching/learning opportunities, and how to incorporate requesting (manding), labeling (tacting), following directions (listener-response), conversational skills (intraverbals), & echoic skills into the learning opportunities. Following the training, the SkillCorps team and Kaizora staff met within small groups to discuss NET in greater detail.
