9 Signs That Neuroscience Has Entered The Classroom | Edudemic

9 Signs That Neuroscience Has Entered The Classroom | Edudemic | 21st Century Concepts- Educational Neuroscience | Scoop.it

"There is often a big divide between what happens in the laboratory and the way laboratory findings are practically applied. The relationship between neuroscience research and education is no exception. While there are numerous educational products that claim to be based on neuroscience research (often quite dubiously so), the real impact of brain-based research on education has been much more subtle."

This article "highlights some of the key ways that neuroscience is changing the classroom of today for the better." Topics include: cognitive tutoring, later start time in high schools, individualized education, making learning fun, and much more.
