Popular neuromyths about how we learn are creating confusion in the classroom, write Christopher Chabris and Daniel Simons.
This post starts with a pop quiz:
Which of these statements is false?
1. We use only 10% of our brain.
2. Environments rich in stimuli improve the brains of preschool children.
3. Individuals learn better when they receive information in their preferred learning style, whether auditory, visual or kinesthetic.
It then continues to explain a number of "neuromyths" and it includes a video interview with a Pyschology professor who discusses recent findings.
