Brain Hacking 304: Why Every Educator Needs To Know How The Brain Learns
I recently watched a TEDx Amsterdam Talk by Sandra von Aalderen "Teachers, know your brain!" and it inspired me to create the infographic below. With the recent developments in the fields of neuroscience and how it affects learning we, the educators, have a unique opportunity to help students leverage the knowledge of how the human brain acquires knowledge to learn more effectively, all the while increasing student motivation, curiosity, creativity, and self-confidence.
Let's spread this message together.
