As a learning support teacher, you may have heard and used a variety of techniques to help your classroom run more efficiently and effectively. Yet maybe you felt the need for a specific system that organizes student learning and increases student feedback.
Phil Bowman, my guest today, talks about this Mario Framework. A framework designed for learning support classrooms and teachers.
Philip Bowman is a learning support teacher in his ninth year at International School Bangkok. His career in special education began over 14 years ago, shortly after being diagnosed as an adult with ADHD. Drawing on his personal experiences with ADHD and varied background in science, research, liberal arts, special education, motivation, mindfulness, and video games, he created an empathetic and playful approach to learning support that focuses on sustainable results through personalized learning.
Philip believes that, in addition to in-class support, all students with exceptionalities should have access to effective learning support classes that target overall learning and life-long success. He recently founded the MARIO Framework to help further this mission by providing a shared space for learning support teachers to build and/or improve their own ideal classroom.
