9 Ways Neuroscience Has Changed The Classroom
This is great to read how more studies are showing the positive effects of differentiated teaching! Long road ahead to recruit the masses, however it is on the rise and the more information that gets out there, the more the benefits will be seen for the children now and future. I believe in Montessori education due to the very nature of the child is fostered from a very young age, allowing for exploration and development in their own ways, however shown variations and extensions to further their understanding. I think the article might have tapped in on a small bit of what Maria Montessori was working with during her time, it was just not the time of technology. And for the comment: "These developments can not only help to improve learning in those with disabilities but can also improve memory and language skills in all students, regardless of ability."--- Dr. Joyce Pickering is a doctor who has specialized in learning differences, and I was fortunate enough to have her for one of my classes during Montessori child development courses. She developed the Montessori Applied to Children at Risk for the very purpose of helping children and even adults to avoid medications and utilize their own brains by being taught different ways to learn, and with great success. There are even studies showing the significance of continuing education in this way for the elders to stave off dementia.
It is essential that the comment "Educators are increasingly encouraging administrators to move away from memorization-based learning to programs that ask students to solve problems, think critically, and explore creativity, as these methods not only build knowledge but also enhance and build brain pathways themselves, prepping the brain for future educational experiences." be heard and hence seen for the sake of the children's future endeavors......wish there was a way to get the government and educational agencies within the state to see the bigger picture of things! It almost seems as though there is a purpose for their blindness to the mind of a child, and it has become about money or politics and truly lost the grasp of education for all.
