Brain Power Strategies    EDT6900

Uncomplicating the Brain to help your Students

Authors: Tanya Titus and Kerry Parker

 

There has been an explosion of research and information on the brain.

In the past, the focus was physiology and psychology. Today, brain research is linking the disciplines of psychology, biology, sociology, psychiatry and pedagogy in a new science referred to as “educational neuroscience.” This educational model is often called “brain-based learning”. This course is designed to offer educators, administrators and guidance counselors the basics of this new information. Participants will then have the opportunity to explore & develop practical techniques for putting it to work in their current situation.

 

A FEW OF THE MANY THINGS PARTICIPANTS WILL LEARN:

*Neuroanatomy-parts of the brain and what happens when learning takes place. 

*Specific brain-friendly teaching techniques through modeling and group/class activities. *Current research on a variety of topics such as the correlation of the brain with nutrition, physical movement, memory, aging, gender differences, and the brain’s thinking and learning processes.

*Brain compatible strategies to boost attention and motivation and to deal with diversity as well as individual learner needs.

*Using brain-friendly models for selecting activities for pre-assessment, teaching, practice, evaluation and enrichment in order to maximize student achievement.
