Neuroscience & the Classroom: Making Connections

Neuroscience & the Classroom: Making Connections | Elementary Education Trends | Scoop.it

"Insights drawn from neuroscience not only provide educators with a scientific basis for understanding some of the best practices in teaching, but also offer a new lens through which to look at the problems teachers grapple with every day. By gaining insights into how the brain works—and how students actually learn—teachers will be able to create their own solutions to the classroom challenges they face and improve their practice." This is a course for K-12 educators.

Sleep is critical to learning and especially remembering what we have learned. Today's society is plagued with over medicated, over scheduled, over technology centered children who are not sleeping. No wonder learning disabilities are on the rise.

Two authors talk about their relationship with ebooks.

I guess we all have to come to terms with how we read now that we have choices. 

I enjoy reading on my Kindles (yes plural - one in my handbag and one in my bed!) and find I read much faster and more easily with the bigger print and without the distraction of the opposite page to pull the eye.

But I do agree with Anna Holmes about "investment":  I want to have a physical copy of any book I have loved, and I long for ebooks and print books (and audio books, please) to be "bundled". .

This is a great starter resource on text complexity. Another consideration is the types of questions that are asked of the text. For example, some questions simply require searching for answers within the text, while others require creating answers through critical and creative thinking.

Some of the key myths:

* Some people are left-brained and some are right-brained

* Male and female brains are radically different

* We use only 10 percent of our brains

 

Be wary of product claims that they are proven by brain research. From the article: "Neuroimaging technologies have really only developed over the last 20 years, so virtually nothing is 'proven' at this point."

2.) Multiple means of expression - the "how" of learning with different ways that learners can navigate a learning environment and demonstrate their mastery.
3.) Multiple means of engagement - the "why" of learning with the many ways that students can be engaged in their learning and motivated to learn."

GoogleLitTrips Reading List's curator insight, January 13, 2:36 PM

Google Lit Trips is proud to announce the addition of the . This Lit Trip was co-developed by Library Media Specialist Anne Brusca, who is also the developer of the popular Google Lit Trip for A Family Apart by Joan Lowery Nixon as well as the Google Lit Trip for Flesh & Blood So Cheap by Albert Marrin and Google Lit Trip founder, Jerome Burg.

 

This Google Lit Trip includes several placemarks mentioned in the diary including placemarks for:

 

Anne Frank's Birthplace containing a link to an interactive Timeline for the Frank family. The Timeline is rich in embedded media related to the Frank family from 1914 through 2012.

 

Anne Frank's Home: Where the Frank family lived prior to moving to the Secret Annex. Flying to this placemark goes directly into Google Earth Streetview" where students can see the very place where the family lived as it looks today. This placemark contains a link to the only known video footage of Anne Frank. Students will see the very window in Street View from which Anne appears in the video.

 

Anne's father's business commonly referred to as the "Anne Frank" Building: This placemark includes an historical aerial photograph with the building in which Otto' Frank's business was located tinted blue. It is easy to see that the Annex which is behind the blue tinted building is not visible from the street.

 

The Secret Annex: This placemark shifts the view to a bird's eye view showing the secret annex behind the street-side building and contains a link to a virtual walk-through tour of the entire Secret Annex. 

 

The Westerbrook Transit Camp: This placemark contains an image of the very hut in which the Frank family stayed while at the Westerbork Transit Camp. It also contains a link to a short video about the the memorial now located on the grounds of the Westerbork Transit Camp and a link to an exquisite photo slide show capturing the "feeling" of the place today as it has been set-aside to remember those who passed through this camp on their way to the unimaginable destinies that lay ahead for them.

 

Auschwitz Concentration Camp: This placemark contains a link to a 2 minute video about a photo book that presents,  "... 31 historical photographs taken by SS men in 1944 depicting the extermination of Jews in the Auschwitz II-Birkenau camp. They were set in contrast with present-day photographs of the same locations...." There is also a link to a website with more information about the Auschwitz Concentration Camp.

 

Bergen-Belsen Concentration Camp: This placemark marks the spot in the desolate area where the Bergen-Belsen Concentration once was and where Anne and her sister died.

 

Lest We Forget: This placemark is provides a view of the Yad Vashem 

The Holocaust Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance Authority
Jerusalem Israel. It also has links to other Holocaust Museums with interactive exhibits and other educational resources.

 

Those educators responsible for addressing Common Core State Standards for both literary reading and Informational reading and particularly those interested in cross-curricular studies will find this a valueable addition to: your students' learning experiences.
