TAGteach™ is a ground-breaking, science-based technology that provides a clear, systematic protocol for accelerated learning, a method for generating sustained enthusiasm (avoiding burnout) and a principled, all-positive learning system applicable to students at every skill and educational level.
TAG is an acronym for Teaching with Acoustical Guidance. The TAG system clarifies the critical information students and athletes need to learn and acquire new skills. A marker, often sound-based, is used to indicate correct performance. These achievements are positively reinforced thus causing success to recur. The focused, positive nature of this method yields immediate and stunning results that are clearly evident to teachers, students, and parents.
