    Brain Rules
    This presentation focuses on three…
    exercise
    Rule #1: Exercise boosts brain power.
    vision
    Rule #10: Vision trumps all other senses.
    attention
    Rule #4: We don’t pay attention to boring things.
  • 9. Rule #1
    Exercise boosts
    brain power.
  • 10. A brilliant survival strategy…move!
  • 11. Our brains became most powerful under conditions where motion was constant.
  • 12. …not whilloungingaround.
  • 13. Will you age like Frank or like Jim?
  • 14. Jim is withering away in a nursing home.
    Frank is sharp and productive as an architect.
  • 15. Jim is withering away in a nursing home.
    Frank is sharp and productive as an architect.
  • 16. If you are a couch potato you are more likely to age like Jim.
  • 17. A lifetime of exercise results in an elevation of cognitive performance.
  • 18. Physical activity is cognitive candy!
  • 19. Kids pay better attention when they’ve had exercise.
  • 20. Physically fit children feel better, have higher self esteem and less anxiety…
    …all of which can improve academic performance
  • 21. …all of which can improve academic performance
  • 22. We were not designed to sit in a classroom or a cubicle for 8 hour stretches.
  • 23. Exercise is the closest thing we have to a magic bullet for improving human health
  • 24. We need to move!
  • 25. Rule #4
    We don’t pay attentionto boring things.
  • 26. What do we pay attention to?
  • 27. Our previous experiences influence what we pay attention to.
  • 28. Our interests influence what we pay attention to.
  • 29. Our awareness influences what we pay attention to.
  • 30. Emotions capture our attention.
  • 31. Emotionally arousing events are better remembered.
  • 32. Emotions focus attention on the “gist” of an experience not on the details.
  • 33. Understanding the “gist” of an event leads to understanding the meaning behind it.
  • 34. Our brains cannot multi-task.
  • 35. Our attention can only be shifted, not shared.
  • 36. Here is what happens in our brains every time we are interrupted…
  • 37. Step 1. Shift alert
    Step 2. Rule activation
    for task #1
    Step 3. Disengagement
    Step 4. Rule activation
    for task #2
  • 38. What was I
    saying?
    People who are interrupted take 50% longerto complete a task and make 50% more errors.
  • 39. If you need to concentrate…
    create an interruption free zone.
  • 40. The brain needs a break.
  • 41. Your student’s get full after consuming too much information.
  • 42. They check out after
    10 minutes.
  • 43. After 9 minutes and 59 seconds, “bait the hook” to bring them back into your instruction
  • 44. The hook should
    trigger an emotion.
    The hook should
    have relevancy.
    The hook should
    transition between lessons
  • 45. Rule #10
    Vision trumps all other senses.
  • 46. We see with our brains.
  • 47. Vision is by far our most dominant sense, taking up half of our brain’s resources.
    Other Stuff
    Vision
  • 48. What we see is what our brains tell us we see, and it’s kind of guessing.
  • 49. The brain bases it guesses on our prior experience with events in our past.
  • 50. We have better recall for pictures.
    Your bullet points gave
    a good summary of
    the main points…
    …too bad I’m probably
    going to forget them
  • 51. Hear a piece of information and three days later you will remember 10% of it.
  • 52. Add a picture and you will remember 65%.
  • 53. Our brain tries to make sense of certain features in letters and that takes time.
  • 54. “Communicate with pictures more than words.”
    -John Medina
  • 55. Rule #10
    Vision trumps all other senses.
