6 Targets To Teach The Way The Brain Learns - TeachThought

6 Targets To Teach The Way The Brain Learns - TeachThought | Educational Nuggets | Scoop.it

"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, brain-targeted teaching can engage and excite students because it taps into factors that stimulate the brain, grab the attention, and set the stage for learning."

"Creating and using mind maps is a great way to get students brainstorming ideas about a given topic, organize their thought processes and turn these ideas into a neatly written pieces. I have been using several web tools with my students over the past few years. From teaching vocabulary to getting students engaged in the prewriting process, I found the functionalities and ease of use of these web tools a great way to enhance students productivity."

My grandfather had nothing and worked into his 80's.  He lead my family. Jane Goodall is a leader in saving the wild life.  I am very involved in that.  Henri Matisse was a leader in simplicity in Art; it doesn't have to be detailed to get the point across. I think President Bill Clinton was the best leader the US has seen as he helped college students and eliminated our deficit.  CHef Gordon Ramsey is an amazing leader although he runs with an iron fist, he commands respect and excellence in his kitchen.

The examples provided by great leaders are meant to be inspirations for our own climb to greatness. Each of us has the ability to sprout ideas--innovation--which have potential to change the world around us. The breadth and scope of the world we can impact is based upon the value of the innovation we have to share. Why not start by innovating right where you are? To see a need and fill it within your family, your community, or your workplace?

In sum, self-leadership theory can provide you with hints on how to increase your productivity. Possibly even more important, it could help you to reflect on your own work and life goals.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 27, 7:06 PM

We probably do not think of this concept, but leading one's self is important in living.  I think this is critical to classroom teachers who often do not have much contact with other adults for the necessary leadership. It is more the way schooling is than by choice.
