6 Targets To Teach The Way The Brain Learns

6 Targets To Teach The Way The Brain Learns | Making Education Interesting | 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."

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).

Such an interesting chapter. It made me think about how and what I value in the classroom, especially with regards to more open ended projects, like the Science Expo. How do we teach scientific skills and what are they? All interesting questions for debate...

This pdf file is fairly large and looks at the original version of Bloom's Taxonomy but it is an in-depth look that moves from the lower ordering thinking skills to the higher order thinking skills and includes a definition for each level as well as:

* Key Words - an extensive list for each level

* Actions and Outcomes for each level

* Questions specific to each level

Microsoft's rebranding of its cloud-storage service SkyDrive to OneDrive is more than just a name change. Here are four new features that make the service even better.

Danica Kloes's curator insight, March 4, 11:01 AM

I think that OneDrive already sounds a lot better than the SkyDrive we have right now. I can't say that SkyDrive is bad because I don't really use it, but it didn't seem that important except to back up files. The idea of more free storage is good, because the couple times I checked out SkyDrive I felt like they really weren't offering enough (I believe it was only a couple GB). The real-time collaboration feature will make things much easier on students in particular; you won't have to worry about meeting up to work on some things anymore. The video sharing isn't very innovative, but it's convenient for people that share videos often. And for the people that have the Windows phone, I'm sure they will appreciate the new OneDrive app.
