How humans learn

  1. 1. The evidence  Experience, focus and practice develops specific regions of the human brain. Hence people’s brains vary as does their ability and interest
  2. 2. The evidence  Brains are sensitive to the culture/environment and develop differentially
  3. 3. The evidence  It takes effort to shift information from working to long term memory  The more places information is stored the easier it is retrieved and used  Repeated use improves memory
  4. 4. The evidence  Humans learn in small chunks
  5. 5. The evidence  Learning promotes more learning as pathways develop and success occurs
  6. 6. The evidence  Personalising, sharing and using information enhances the chance it is learned as new pathways are forged
  7. 7. The evidence  People can pay attention to a speaker for about 8 minutes
  8. 8. The evidence  People operate on System 1 thinking (habitual, automatic) rather than System 2 thinking (cognitive involvement) since it takes less energy
  9. 9. The evidence  Effort develops human brains
  10. 10. The evidence  Humans are naturally curious and explore
  11. 11. The evidence  Learning needs to be multi-sensory
  12. 12. The evidence  Emotions and learning are inextricably linked  Emotionally charged experiences are more likely to be remembered and recovered
  13. 13. The evidence  Humans are motivated to resolve incongruity  They are pattern seeking
  14. 14. The evidence  Brain plasticity tells us that brains constantly change and develop in the face of new learning as complex new pathways are built
  15. 15. The evidence  State dependent learning-people are more likely to recover information in the same physical and/or emotional state that they obtained it  So, learn the same way you intend to use it
  16. 16. The evidence  The first 30 seconds are critical in any interaction in gaining attention
  17. 17. The evidence  Repetition using different parts of the brain is critical for memory
  18. 18. The evidence  Enriched environments enhance learning as do  Surprise and novel experiences
  19. 19. The evidence  It can take years to develop reliable memories
  20. 20. The evidence  When real learning occurs is unpredictable
  21. 21. The evidence  Humans learn best by immersion  -Interaction with information
  22. 22. The evidence  Technological games appear to enhance learning
