¿Sabes cómo funciona nuestro cerebro cuando hace e-learning? | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it

Sabemos que el contenido, el diseño y la navegabilidad de un curso e-learning son importantes para el aprendizaje, así que conocer cómo nuestro cerebro adquiere, conserva y procesa la información en el aprendizaje de nuevos conceptos, ideas o habilidades servirá para saber cómo aprendemos a través de un curso e-learning.

Artists have unique brain structure

Artists have unique brain structure | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it

Artists have structurally different brains compared with non-artists, a study has found.

Participants' brain scans revealed that artists had increased neural matter in areas relating to fine motor movements and visual imagery.

The research, published in NeuroImage, suggests that an artist's talent could be innate.

But training and environmental upbringing also play crucial roles in their ability, the authors report.

As in many areas of science, the exact interplay of nature and nurture remains unclear.

Lead author Rebecca Chamberlain from KU Leuven, Belgium, said she was interested in finding out how artists saw the world differently.

...

No 'right' side

Ellen Winner of Boston College, US, who was not involved with the study, commented that it was very interesting research.

She said it should help "put to rest the facile claims that artists use 'the right side of their brain' given that increased grey and white matter were found in the art group in both left and right structures of the brain".

"Only a prospective study could get at the question of innate structural brain differences that predispose people to become visual artists, and this kind of study has not been done as it would be very difficult and very expensive to carry out."

What percentage of your brain do you use? - Richard E. Cytowic

What percentage of your brain do you use? - Richard E. Cytowic | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it
Two thirds of the population believes a myth that has been propagated for over a century: that we use only 10% of our brains. Hardly! Our neuron-dense brains have evolved to use the least amount of energy while carrying the most information possible -- a feat that requires the entire brain. Richard E. Cytowic debunks this neurological myth (and explains why we aren’t so good at multitasking).

- Ajouter de la connaissance, en réalisant des expériences nouvelles et transgressives par rapport à vos habitudes;

- Gardez des traces de toutes vos idées, et spécialement celles qui apparaissent de façon fugace sous la douche;

- Revoyez vos notes quotidiennement en adoptant la méthode Benjamin Franklin > demandez-vous ce que vous allez faire de bien au cours de votre journée au réveil, et ce que vous avez fait de bien lors de votre journée au coucher.

Quote -  ""You may be familiar with the idea of different types of learner. For example, if you are a "visual learner" you need content delivered primarily visually. But there is very little scientific evidence to support this idea, and labelling pupils by type of learner and delivering content accordingly limits the richness of their learning experiences and may reduce what is learned."

6 Targets To Teach The Way The Brain Learns

6 Targets To Teach The Way The Brain Learns | Linguagem Virtual | 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."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 18, 10:13 PM

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).

“ Before going on with the importance of mental fitness, let’s explain what it is – it’s the work you invest into your psychological well-being and your ability to find joy in each moment of life.” The importance of physical fitness is all over the media, and there is a good reason for that fuss. When you keep your body healthy, you will prevent many serious health conditions and preserve your well-being for longer. However, the aspect of health that’s not getting enough attention is mental fitness. Who needs a healthy, flexible and lean body without a healthy and flexible mind?
