Researchers have discovered a new essential function for half of the brain's cells. Called glia cells, scientists have known them to hold the brain's neurons together, protecting the cells that determine our thoughts and behavior. But now they believe glia cells do much more, actually regulating the synapses and sorting information for learning purposes. "Messages may originate with the neurons, which use the synapses as their delivery system, but the glia serve as an overall moderator, regulating which messages are sent on and when."

Why is Storytelling so Powerful? A Look at What it does to our Brain

Why is Storytelling so Powerful? A Look at What it does to our Brain | iEduc | Scoop.it
Storytelling is one of the most overused and underused techniques at the same time. In this post, we are revealing what storytelling does to our brains.

Long before we had writing as we know it there has been an oral tradition of storytelling. This post looks at the science around storytelling.

Learn about how a story "can put your whole brain to work" and why "our brains become more active when we tell stories." Find out why the brain "learns to ignore certain overused words and phrases" and much more. If you enjoy telling stories, writing stories, or listening to stories check out this post to learn more!

Excellent!

44Doors's curator insight, March 11, 2014 10:27 AM

"Anything you’ve experienced, you can get others to experience the same. Or at least, get their brain areas that you’ve activated that way, active too:"

 

"use simple, yet heartfelt language."

"Quick last fact: Our brain learns to ignore certain overused words and phrases that used to make stories awesome"

KEN'S KEY TAKEAWAY:

This is an older article, but a great primer on neuroplasticity.  I like the story about the piano player.

Ken

 

 


"FOR DECADES, THE PREVAILING DOGMA IN neuroscience was that the adult human brain is essentially immutable, hardwired, fixed in form and function, so that by the time we reach adulthood we are pretty much stuck with what we have. Yes, it can create (and lose) synapses, the connections between neurons that encode memories and learning. And it can suffer injury and degeneration. But this view held that if genes and development dictate that one cluster of neurons will process signals from the eye and another cluster will move the fingers of the right hand, then they'll do that and nothing else until the day you die. There was good reason for lavishly illustrated brain books to show the function, size and location of the brain's structures in permanent ink.ut research in the past few years has overthrown the dogma. In its place has come the realization that the adult brain retains impressive powers of "neuroplasticity"--the ability to change its structure and function in response to experience."

A Nice Graphic on The Relationship between Learning and The Brain | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Nice Graphic on The Relationship between Learning and The Brain | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iEduc | Scoop.it

The human brain, that mysterious black box which has amazed scientists for centuries, has now started to come to the sunshine as more and more studies reveal its intricacies. The brain study is important not only because it allows us to understand how we reason but it also provides us with an inestimable wealth of information into ways of learning and knowing.

Abstract


This article presents information drawn from research on brain processes that impact perception, memory, learning, and understandings about the world. This information is related to the use of interactive video and the Web in distance education through a discussion of how best to enhance learning - or mitigate problems caused - through the use of these technologies.

Connection through emotions in an online environment takes some extra effort on everyone's part. For me, personal teaching stories help convey humor, empathy, along with the curriculum content.  


Having a lounge where folks can swap pictures of kids and pets might appeal to our brains limbic centers as well!

Developing trust and reciprocal awareness among virtual student teams is essential in effective group formation and performance - particularly in short-duration, high-stakes projects.

How the Brain Learns from Mistakes - Dana Foundation

How the Brain Learns from Mistakes - Dana Foundation | iEduc | Scoop.it

"Imagine renting a car in the United Kingdom. Though you may be an experienced driver on American soil, making the switch to the “wrong” side of the road can be a bit of a challenge. You have to remain vigilant and pay close attention to the new rules, as well as inhibit your automatic tendency to want to drive on the right. Chances are, you will also make a few mistakes at first or as you grow tired.Common wisdom holds that we learn best from our mistakes. But researchers at Michigan State University have published a new study that suggests something more is needed: We must be conscious of our mistakes to reap the benefits of improved performance."
