Brain Based Education Brain Based Education Presentation Transcript

  • Brain Based Education : Implications for the classroom Lesson based on: Jensen, E. P. (2008). A Fresh Look at Brain Based Education. Retrieved 04 03, 2010, from Phi Delta Kappan: http://www.pdkintl.org/kappan/k_v89/k0802jen.htm
  • Human brain can grow neurons
    • Process regulated by everyday activities
    • Can be enhanced by exercise, low level of stress, good nutrition
  • Social conditions can influence brain
    • Become more active in managing social environment
    • Don’t rely on random groups…strengthen prosocial conditions
    • Groups offer reward, acceptance, pleasure, coherence, stress free
  • Brain can rewire & remap due to plasticity
    • Enhance through skill-building, reading, meditation, the arts, career and technical education, and thinking skills
  • Chronic stress is bad for the brain
    • Repeated stress results in a state of “allostasis”, an adjusted new baseline for stress
    • Stress affects health, learning and behavior
  • Genes can respond to environment
    • Everyday behaviors can influence gene expression
  • Good nutrition feeds the brain
    • What we eat affects memory, attention, stress and even intelligence
  • Arts may have role in brain based learning
    • Although jury is still out, arts may have developmentally sensitive period of the arts
  • Exercise is medicine for the brain
    • Exercise strongly correlated with increased brain mass, better cognition, mood regulation, and new cell production.
  • Strides in brain rehabilitation studies
    • Aggressive behavioral therapies, new drugs, and stem cell implantation can be used to influence, regulate, and repair brain-based disorders.
  • Environments alter our brain
    • Increasing neuroscience research to understand human responses to the built environment.
