In outlining this theory, Rifkin provides four fundamental human needs culminating in a ‘first drive’: the drive to belong.
How do you make your students feel? Research is clear that the answer to this question can have a profound effect on the learning that occurs within your class or school.
How can you create a classroom that works in a way the brain ‘likes’ to learn?
How does the memory work in learning? The more times an action is repeated, the more dendrites grow and interconnect–resulting in efficient ‘storage.’
ACT-R is a way of specifying how the brain itself is organized in a way that enables individual processing modules to produce cognition.
If you ask a student to apply problem-solving skills when they are learning new and critical information, you’re asking the brain to do two things at once. This limits both processes. The task is ‘complex’ but not in a way that benefits the student.
The Cognitive Load Theory is built on the premise that the brain can only do so many things at once and we should be intentional about what we ask it to do.
No, Your Brain Isn’t Divided By Creativity And Logic by TeachThought Staff How the human brain works is a topic of considerable chatter, but not much in-depth discussion outside of neuroscience and psychology. There is indeed an undercurrent of learning (that should perhaps be an over-current) regarding brain-based learning and research, but very little understanding…
Why Brain-Based Learning Means Always Connecting Old Knowledge With New by Judy Willis M.D., M.Ed., radteach.com Building and retrieving memories takes place in stages through information encoding, storage in patterns of relational memories, and restimulating these neuronal pathways by review each time the memory is accessed and used. Familiarity increases recall so students with memory-based learning difficulties can…
The neuroscience of how the brain learns and what influences the application of learning should be included in all teacher education programs.
Stress cuts off students’ access to higher-level networks of higher-order thinking, logic, creative problem solving, and analytical judgment.
Teach The Way The Brain Learns by Ramona Persaud When you’re standing in front of a classroom of students who’re not quite sure they even want to be in your class, much less pay attention to what’s being said, things like neuroscience, research studies, and teaching the way the brain learns are an abstraction. Yet,…
