Mind Brain Education
Teachers are not expected to become neuroscientists. But it is essential that their teaching practice is informed by the latest research in Mind Brain Education. As education is becoming a science there is less and less room for individual opinion about which strategies are good and which are bad. We can now base our strategies on proven science.
This module looks at the role of neurotransmitters in the consolidation of memory and the relevance of neurogenesis in learning.
Mind Brain Education principles tend to be the same for all brains regardless of cultural influence, age, race, or gender—such as that all new learning takes place against the backdrop of past experiences. These principles...
Of all the neurotransmitters in the brain, perhaps the most significant one from the teacher’s perspective is dopamine – the brain chemical associated with movement, attention, learning, and the brain’s pleasure and reward system. When...
As we move deeper into the 21st century, there is no doubt that neuroscience and advancements in brain mapping and brain scanning will have an increasing impact on teaching. We are seeing a gradual revolution...
By understanding how the brain works, educators are better equipped to help students with everything from focusing attention to increasing retention. That’s the promise of brain-based learning, which draws insights from neurology, psychology, technology, and...
