March Issue Brief – Brain Based Teaching

As scientists learn more about how the human brain works, educators must stay abreast of discoveries to align teaching practices with new understandings of human learning. Brain science helps us understand how to build on students’ culture and experience to improve learning and underscores the importance of emotion and relationships to the learning process. Knowing how the brain receives new information, creates memories, and accesses stored knowledge can help educators plan engaging instructional experiences.

In Core Education’s March issue brief, we explore resources on brain-based teaching. We look at the research behind growth mindset, videos demonstrating teaching techniques that are based on brain research and resources for understanding how brain functioning impacts learning. We investigate a framework for student learning built on findings about the brain.
