The High Cost of Neuromyths in Education

The High Cost of Neuromyths in Education | Learning, Education, and Neuroscience | Scoop.it
Instead of believing in the right/left brain, learning styles, and that we use only ten percent of our brains, we should focus on neuroscience research.
Pamela D Lloyd's insight:

Those of us who work in the education field need to be aware of the science and the pseudoscience, so we can avoid perpetuating the myths.

The Reading Brain in the Digital Age: The Science of Paper versus Screens: Scientific American

The Reading Brain in the Digital Age: The Science of Paper versus Screens: Scientific American | Learning, Education, and Neuroscience | Scoop.it
E-readers and tablets are becoming more popular as such technologies improve, but research suggests that reading on paper still boasts unique advantages
Pamela D Lloyd's insight:

It's still early days for digital reading, so it's unclear how many of the issues noted in this examination of the differences between reading physical books and ebooks will remain, and how many will seem hopelessly antiquated to our descendents. I found that most of the points noted reflect my own experience with our evolving media delivery systems, while also suggesting some thought-provoking possibilities for the future.

A Neurologist Makes the Case for Teaching Teachers About the Brain

A Neurologist Makes the Case for Teaching Teachers About the Brain | Learning, Education, and Neuroscience | Scoop.it
"Do you recall some of your college professors who knew their subject matter but had zero teaching skills? Staying awake in their one-way-directed lecture classes required Herculean strength (or lots of coffee). They were never trained to develop the skillset of engagement strategies.

 

Even though I was a physician with a strong science background, when I decided to become a classroom teacher (and thought I'd teach science), I did not want to make that career change without the benefit of instruction and guided student teaching. The year I spent in my graduate school of education program was invaluable in my transition to becoming a professional educator."

The Neuroscience Behind Stress and Learning

The Neuroscience Behind Stress and Learning | Learning, Education, and Neuroscience | Scoop.it

The highest-level executive thinking, making connections, and "aha" moments of insight and creative innovation are more likely to occur in an atmosphere of what Alfie Kohn calls exuberant discovery, where students of all ages retain that kindergarten enthusiasm of embracing each day with the joy of learning.


Via Nik Peachey
Pamela D Lloyd's insight:

While stress may be useful for learning not to touch a hot stove, it tends to inhibit the kind of learning that is most needed by students in today's world.
