Task: After attending the speech "Ambientes de Aprendizaje Inteligentes:
recomedaciónes desde la Neurociencia" by Mrs Silvia Castro during
INNOVATION WEEK: Ambientes Inteligentes, write a letter to her on what you
learned at the activity. Wednesday, June 3, 2010.
Mrs. Silvia Castro
My name is Paula Garro, I am a student of psychology. On Wednesday May 26th I was honored to
attend the speech held in the auditorium of the University "Intelligent learning environments:
Recommendations from neuroscience" given by you. Let me congratulate you on your work.
Personally, the speech was interesting to me for his psychological approach. Neuroscience and
educational psychology are so far two approaches that I draw little attention.
For my educational psychology course I am doing a project with a partner, in which we're focusing on
two aspects that you gave great importance during the speech, "The student learns best by doing" as
well as "learning to be meaningful, varied, practical and situated."
I firmly believe in the plasticity of the brain and the ability humans have to improve learning
It would be an honor to progress our project, you can give us your opinion and maybe some tips for
improvement. The project is a method that promotes the art of learning by doing.
Thank you very much for your attention.
