Use research-based principles of neuroscience  to organize and present materials to maximize student learning.

Sharrock's curator insight, March 18, 2014 9:10 AM

I get excited with research and the implications of research. I value evidence and application over theory and anecdotal information. Validity. The problem will always be in how the research is interpreted and translated/fitted from one setting (the lab) to the classroom (practical use). Neuroscience is relatively new. There is nothing wrong with testing these ideas for use in the classroom though. However, the "Usable classroom translations" are sometimes close in "proximity" to what we educators already believe (indicating perhaps a confirmation bias), or the translations are huge leaps from the research takeaway (the conclusion?). For example, the author references this: "Brain Target 4: Teaching for Mastery
Neuroscience behind it: In order for information to be retained it must make its way from short-term to long-term memory.
Usable classroom translation: Use the arts as a tool to enhance and reinforce learning goals (Rinne, Gregory, Yarmolinskaya, and Hardiman, 2011)".  This doesn't fit with my understanding of evidence. I need a few more connections between the "dots" of research conclusion with the implicated classroom practice.

Rachael Grant's curator insight, March 11, 2014 2:04 PM

I always thought that there were more people with learning disabilities! This list of ten quick facts about LDs says that there is only ten percent of people with learning difficulties are in enrolled in a four year college within two years of leaving high school. This was very surprising to me! This opened my eyes to how alone these students must feel. It would be difficult enough to have a different learning style than most of your peers or your teacher, but to have a diagnosed disability would be very frustrating.
