    Brain Compatible Learning Brain Compatible Learning Presentation Transcript

    • Brain Compatible Learning But, haven’t we always learned with our brains? Wendy Drexler August 16, 2006
    • The McGurk Effect
      • http://www.faculty.ucr.edu/~rosenblu/VSMcGurk.html#
      • What does this say about how our senses perceive our world?
    • Focus on these words
      • dream
      • snooze
      • tired
      • weary
      • awake
      • bed
      • pillow
      • nightmare
      • blanket
      • cozy
      • meditate
      • yawn
      • alert
      • calm
      • quiet
    • Patterns and Groupings
      • Graphic organizers
        • Venn Diagram
        • KWL
        • Mind mapping (Kidspiration and Inspiration)
    • Principles Emerging from Current Brain Research
      • The brain is remarkably plastic over a lifetime. Learning changes the brain.
      • Powerful learning is prompted when all five senses are engaged.
      • Adequate time is needed for each phase of information processing.
      • Learning is developmental.
      • Emotional well-being is essential to intellectual functioning.
        • Marchese 2002
    • Differentiate Instruction
      • More specifically…
        • Structure the differentiated instruction to maximize brain compatible strategies.
    • Toolkit of Brain Compatible Strategies
      • Active Rehearsal strategies are good for long term memory retention.
        • Peer teaching
        • Active review of learned materials
        • Hands on learning
      • Mnemonics and memory tricks do help improve memory.
      • Multiple Intelligences, learning styles, left/right brain…everyone learns differently.
      • Writing can serve as a tool for refining thinking.
        • Wolfe, 2001
    • Brain Targeted Teaching Model
      • Dr. Mariale M. Hartman
      • Assistant Dean of Urban School Partnerships
      • Johns Hopkins University - Maryland

    • Emotional Climate
      • Limbic system (emotional center above brain stem) processes information first
      • Threats impede learning
      • Positive emotional experiences actual enhance long term memory
      • Visual and performing arts - one way to tap into emotional center
    • Physical Environment
      • Novelty
      • Eyes register 36,000 visual images per hour
      • Sound, lighting, scent
      • Smells register directly in the limbic system
    • Learning Design
      • Present the big picture first
      • Conceptual understanding leads to better understanding of details
      • Concept maps
      • Graphic organizers
    • Teaching for Mastery
      • Plan multiple activities to activate the brain’s memory system
      • Memory
        • Short term
        • Working
        • Long term
      • Repeated rehearsal, integration of the arts, multiple intelligences
    • Teaching for Application
      • Higher order thinking
      • Problem based learning
      • Performance-based activities
      • Investigations, experiments
    • Evaluating Learning
      • Immediate feedback strengthens learning and memory
      • In addition to selected response tests
        • Performance tasks
        • Exhibitions
        • Projects
      • Scoring
        • Rubrics
        • Checklists
        • Reflections
        • Self Evaluation
    • Brain Compatible Writing
      • Color Poetry
      • Chocolate
      • 3-2-1 Blast Off
      • Race with Grace
