102 Brain-Based Learning Resources For Brain-Based Teaching 

102 Brain-Based Learning Resources For Brain-Based Teaching  | 3D Virtual-Real Worlds: Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Researchers in neuroscience, psychology and education are uncovering new information about how brains learn best at an unbelievable pace. We have more insight into the brain’s learning processes than at any other moment in history, and we are poised on the brink of a radical shift of how we think about education. Researching the conditions that allow brains to learn most easily enables innovation and optimization for learners in formal and informal settings. There are countless applications for the findings of the new science of learning, including:

Deeper understanding of cognitive deficits and the unique circumstances that affect everyone’s learning capacity. More nuanced information about memory, cognition, and comprehension in various settings. Better understanding of motivation, metacognition, and what drives us to learn at all.

We are incredibly excited about all of the new knowledge being discovered by researchers examining the neurological and psychological underpinnings of learning and education systems, and we can’t wait to see what the future has in store. The organizations, blogs, research labs, and brain-based learning providers below have diverse perspectives and an incredible range of information about the new science of learning, and we think every single one is worth checking out.

Will Lowering Teacher Certification Requirements Improve Sudent Achievement? Do Schools Need Certified Teachers? Do Children?

Will Lowering Teacher Certification Requirements Improve Sudent Achievement? Do Schools Need Certified Teachers? Do Children? | 3D Virtual-Real Worlds: Ed Tech | Scoop.it
We believe in certified professionals as teachers just like we believe in licenses for medical professionals. Are some people natural teachers? We have seen a few but most become great teachers through a process of preparation and ongoing development and practice. Because this is our belief system, we have actually been advocates of renewable certification for teachers and leaders and accredited professional development. How can those who create safe learning environments for children and help them grow into responsible and productive citizens be less than the most qualified?
