Learn why it is important to stretch your brain, to try new things (and to fail) and to continue to try and improve. Learn about our "Lizard Brain"  (also known as the amygdala),an important component of our brain that impacts how we learn, but the learning is related to the time when humans hunted in the wild. This part of the brain holds us back in many ways, and although it once protected us now it tends to hold us back.

What can we do about this? The video explores this and discusses some of the ways we can "dance" with this "Lizard Brain" and move from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset. For more information take the time to watch this video.

Abreena Tompkins, instruction specialist at Surry Community College, has developed a brain-based online course design model based on a meta-analysis of more than 300 articles. In this study, she distilled the following elements of brain-based course design:

Low-risk, nonthreatening learning environment Challenging, real-life, authentic assessments Rhythms, patterns, and cycles Appropriate chunking or grouping Learning as orchestration rather than lecture or facilitation Appropriate level of novelty Appropriately timed breaks and learning periods Purposeful assessments Learning that addresses visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners Active processing with mental models The use of universal examples, analogies, and parallel processing

16 Ways Your Brain Is Sabotaging Your Effort To Learn

16 Ways Your Brain Is Sabotaging Your Effort To Learn | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

"Most of the time, it’s nothing more than an innocent effort to save face. Our brain will tell us we’re smarter and better looking than everyone else, and that any fault brought to our attention should probably be blamed on someone else..."

Do you know that your brain may sabotage you? This posts looks at sixteen ways the brain may set "traps" that lead us astray. Additional resources are also listed in many of these "traps."

* Equating Knowing With Learning. It takes time for us to really "learn" something, which means we need to review this new information so we can move it from short-term storage to long-term storage.

* Being Biased Towards Ourselves. If you bomb a test or assignment do you tend to base blame on others? This is one example of being biased toward ourselves. We blame the book, teacher...the list could go on.

* Making Us Think We Can Multi-task. What happens when you multi-task? Your brain is quickly switching back and forth between multiple task your brain becomes overloaded and cannot perform at full capacity.

To read more about these three items, and learn about the other 13 ways your brain may try to trick you click through to the post.
