What is Brain-Based Learning?
“Brain-Based Education is the purposeful engagement of strategies based on principles derived from solid scientific research.”
Other research in related fields such as social neuroscience, psychoimmunology, behavioral genetics, psychobiology, cognitive science, neuroscience and physiology also play a role.
Brain-Based Learning is also the application of a meaningful group of principles that represent our understanding of how our brain works in the context of education.
Brain-Based Learning is simply the engagement of strategies based on body/mind/brain research..
Brain-Based Learning is not a panacea or magic bullet to solve all of education’s problems. Anyone who represents that to others is misleading them. There is not yet a “one size fits all” brain-based program, model or package for schools to follow.
What Does a Brain-Based Teacher Do?
A brain-compatible teacher teaches with the brain in mind.
This educator understands the principles and uses strategies in a purposeful way. This path is all about an educator who understands the reasoning behind their teaching. It is also one who stays constantly updated through continuous professional development.
