Creating Effective Teaching Environments
No matter what we are teaching, where we are teaching, or who we are teaching, the Pyramid helps us do it better!
The Pyramid Approach to Education is a comprehensive framework for establishing effective learning environments. Through the use of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA), this approach provides the foundation for a positive environment for growth. The Pyramid emphasises how to teach, rather than simply what to teach, in order to maximise an individual's learning outcomes.
Where do people learn?
