6 Targets To Teach The Way The Brain Learns

6 Targets To Teach The Way The Brain Learns | hobbitlibrarianscoops | 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."

Great comments in here and how it links to neurobiology.

strong>Referencing Beth Dichter's insight:What if we were able to design our curriculum to support the way the brain learns? Would our students be more engaged in class? Learn about this new model, Teach the Way the Brain Learns, in this post. There is a short discussion about some of the concepts as well as six brain targets, each of which includes a brief neuroscience explanation as well as a "translation" so that you will understand how to implement each target in your classroom. What are some of the targets? Brain Target 1: Establish the emotional climate for learning What does this mean? "Stress impedes learning." Make connections with students and then begin the lesson. Brain Target 2: Creating the Physical Learning Environment What does this mean? The physical space impacts our students. Changing the space may help them learn. What changes could you make in your classroom? Four additional brain targets are provided. You may also want to check out the website Brain Targeted Teaching (http://www.braintargetedteaching.org/) where you will find additional information as well as sample units that utilize this method (and a template to create your own lessons).

This post looks at five trends that have made their way into the classroom.  Learn more about:

* Brain-based learning

* Game-based learning

* Power of perseverance

* Questioning homework

* Cultivating creativity

In each of the five areas there are links to a number of resources. Gather together some of these great resources and share them with others in your school!

This article is part of a larger, on-going effort to help connect teachers and other learning professionals with the neuroscience of learning.
