Nine Things Educators Need to Know About the Brain

Our brains require stimulation and connection to survive and thrive. A brain without connection to other brains and without sufficient challenge will shrink and eventually die—moreover, the modern human brain’s primary environment is our matrix of social relationships.

Make the connection - tune  the kids into how their brain works

Edgar Mata's curator insight, November 16, 2015 8:20 PM

Physical activity exerts a stimulating influence on the entire brain that keeps it functioning at an optimal level. Exercise has been shown to stimulate the birth of new neurons in the hippocampus and to pump more oxygen through the brain, stimulating capillary growth and frontal-lobe plasticity.

These are the 4 concepts shaping 21st century learning

These are the 4 concepts shaping 21st century learning | The Brain-Friendly Classroom | Scoop.it
Today's learning landscape is enriched with a variety of new concepts that were to the recent past foreign to many. Of course learning is a dynamic field and it will always keep developing as human knowledge progresses. But the last two to three decades in particular have witnessed the outburst of several new conceptions and theoretical frameworks that, among other things, attempt to capture the latest developments in learning . This cheat sheet features a number of these concepts.

I am also sharing with you the visual below which highlights three more concepts sharing the 21st century learning. To these I added the concept of Andragogy.

"A study of how students best learned a neuroscience lesson showed a distinct benefit to starting out by working with an interactive 3D model of the brain."

There are probably times where lecture comes first, reading comes first, hand's on comes first, and video comes first. It is part of the vital role of teaching.

How a Radical New Teaching Method Could Unleash a Generation of Geniuses

How a Radical New Teaching Method Could Unleash a Generation of Geniuses | The Brain-Friendly Classroom | Scoop.it

Juárez Correa didn’t know it yet, but he had happened on an emerging educational philosophy, one that applies the logic of the digital age to the classroom. That logic is inexorable: Access to a world of infinite information has changed how we communicate, process information, and think. Decentralized systems have proven to be more productive and agile than rigid, top-down ones. Innovation, creativity, and independent thinking are increasingly crucial to the global economy.

This is evidence for some of the initiatives in the US that are allowing children (and sometimes their parents) to "think outside the box" when it comes to their education. -Lon

Sorry, Games and Gamification are Not Magic « Karl Kapp

Sorry, Games and Gamification are Not Magic « Karl Kapp | The Brain-Friendly Classroom | Scoop.it

It seems that if I am not confronted with a person who is convinced that learning games and gamification are evil re-incarnated and will corrupt the minds of all learners and destroy Western Civilization as we know it, I am thus besieged by a person who believes that learning games and gamification are a magic elixir that will wonderfully transform any and all boring, meaningless training into an “edge-of-your-seat-unforgettable learning experience.”

Now the time has come for NEW INNOVATION: "First:  Simplicity of Set UP. The user could take the computer out of the box, plug it in, and be ready to go." Steve Jobs

The design of the product comes first, the development of the hardware had to follow to fit the design, never the other way around. Design goes into the very inner workings of a device.
