Title:
Learning with the Brain in Mind
Topic:
Curriculum & Pedagogy
Summary:
Jensen (2005) reminds us that teachers must be experts on the organ they teach—the brain! The more we educators understand the brain, the better able we are to design instruction to match how our students learn best. Knowledge about brain development and function allows teachers to make informed decisions about teaching practice related to learning. Is testing good for the brain? How should a lesson be structured in order to achieve maximum learning and recall? What effect does physical activity have on learning? How are diet, gender, music training, sleep and stress connected to learning? Participants will explore a range of topics related to the brain and learning, and discover how to develop teaching strategies that engage students’ brains.
