Keynote Speaker. Author. Educator.
Jamie Bricker is a retired elementary school administrator and teacher. He is the author of The New 3 Rs of Teaching and Learning, which is driven by the key thesis that educators need to value creative and innovative thinking in our students, rather than simply rewarding a good short-term memory. We must encourage students of all ages to forge the route, rather than simply follow the rote.

“Students need to learn how to think, not how to remember.”

The New 3 Rs: Richness, Relevance, and Return On Investment.
If classroom tasks don’t routinely connect with all three of these critical components, then educators must honestly ask themselves, “What R we teaching our students!”
