What Kids Should Know About Their Own Brains | digital divide information | Scoop.it

This short article is geared more towards elementary educators but I think the main idea of it is still pertinent to high school educators--that kids should understand how their brains work so that they can understand how they learn. The term we used to throw around in education classes was "metacognition."  Also, I'm a big believer in telling teens about how their brains work in order to make the point that it is dangerous to expose them to various toxic substances.
