I blog on Brain-Based Learning, Metacognition, and Social-Emotional Learning. I am the author of "Crush School: Every Student's Guide To Killing It In The Classroom" which is a book that helps students understand how their brain processes information and learns. In the book, I explain why students can learn anything and give strategies on how to learn effectively.

Keep It Simple Stupid! That’s what my favorite teacher in High School, Mr. Dennis used to say. Besides being an awesome teacher, dude had a point:

WE TEND TO OVERCOMPLICATE THINGS.

Don’t feel bad if you do it, because it’s human nature.

Multitasking is one way we make a mess of things.
