Where can I learn more about Whole Brain Teaching?

I just finished my first live video broadcast on Periscope, and I am IN LOVE! It was so much fun! If you haven't downloaded the Periscope app yet, do it now. And if you're not on Twiiter, sign up! They are both such amazing professional development resources. Besides working with the outstanding WBT teachers from around the world, Twitter is the best resource for connecting with other educators.

The topic of my first broadcast was to direct newbies to WBT towards resources that they might find helpful. You can watch the broadcast HERE. I am absolutely awestruck that there were 222 live viewers (who awarded me 5,247 hearts, the equivalent of "Likes"), and have had 311 replay views. WOW!

To summarize, here are the top resources that you should visit if you are intersted in learning more about Whole Brain Teaching.

1. Whole Brain Teaching for Challenging Kids, by Chris Biffle, available on Amazon.

2. 122 Amazing Games, by Chris Biffle, available on Amazon

On the homepage of the website, there are several resources that you will find extremely valuable.

  • Click on the "Freebies" image at the top to sign up to receive an email a week (starting in the fall 2015) loaded with WBT Freebies. Each email will be focused on one topic. It will describe it, explain how to amp it up with Funtricity, how to use it to help you deal with your challenging kids, and link you to resources to help you use it effectively in your classroom.

  1. Hi,

    I happened to chance upon your blog and found it very interesting!

    We have recently launched a science app that uses augmented reality to enhance classroom teaching. The app has 3D models for kindergarten to grade 12. I thought you might want to check it out and may be review it on your blog, if possible.

    It is a paid app(with a few models free) but in case you are interested in trying it out I will be happy to provide you with a free copy.

    The link to the app is:



    You can also search for the app on the app store as 'Augmenter'.

    Do let me know if you would be interested. I am really Looking forward to your response.

    happy teaching!
