01. brain based-learning

  1. 1. BRAIN-BASED LEARNING THE ORGAN OF LEARNING
  2. 2. THE ORGAN OF BRAIN <ul><li>ADVOCATES OF BRAIN-BASED LEARNING TEACHING INSIST THAT THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN “BRAIN COMPATIBLE” EDUCATION, AND “BRAIN ANTAGONISTIC” TEACHING PRACTICES AND METHOS WHICH CAN ACTUALLY PREVENT LEARNING. </li></ul>
  3. 3. HUMAN BRAIN AND HUMAN LEARNING <ul><li>LESLIE HART ARGUES THAT TEACHING WITHOUT AN AWARENESS OF HOW THE BRAIN LEARNS IS LIKE DESIGNING A GLOVE WITH NO SENSE OF WHAT A HAND LOOKS LIKE-ITS SHAPE, HOW IT MOVES. </li></ul><ul><li>HART PUSHES THIS ANALOGY EVEN FURTHER IN ORDER TO DRIVE HOME HIS PRIMARY POINT: </li></ul><ul><li>“ IF CLASSROOMS ARE TO BE PLACES OF LEARNING, THEN THE ORGAN OF LEARNING, THE BRAIN , MUST BE UNDERSTOOD AND ACCOMODATED. </li></ul>
  4. 4. HUMAN BRAIN AND HUMAN LEARNING <ul><li>HART ARGUES, THAT SOME KNOWLEDGE, EVEN IF IT IS PARTIAL AND SIMPLIFIED, CAN STILL BE APPLIED “TO DESIGN BRAIN-FITTING, BRAIN COMPATIBLE INSTRUCTIONAL SETTINGS AND PROCEDURES”. </li></ul><ul><li>SUCH SETTINGS AND PROCEDURES WOULD EMPHASIZE “REAL WORLD” EXPOSURE. </li></ul><ul><li>THE SCHOOL IN HART’S WORDS, WOULD BECOME “AN EXCITING CENTER WHERE THERE IS CONSTANT ENCOUNTER WITH THE RICHNESS AND VARIETY OF THE REAL WORLD” AS EXPOSSED TO A DREARY EGG CREATE OF CLASSROOMS… ALMOST EMPTY OF ANYTHING REAL ONE MIGHT LEARN FROM. </li></ul>
  5. 5. BRAIN LEARNING PRINCIPLE 1 <ul><li>THE BRAIN IS A COMPLEX ADAPTAVIVE SYSTEM. </li></ul>
  6. 6. BRAIN PRINCIPLE LEARNING 2 <ul><li>THE BRAIN IS A SOCIAL BRAIN. </li></ul>
  7. 7. BRAIN LEARNING PRINCIPLE 3 <ul><li>THE SEARCH FOR MEANING IS INNATE. </li></ul>
  8. 8. BRAIN LEARNING PRINCIPLE 4 <ul><li>THE SEARCH FOR MEANING OCCURS THROUGH PATTERNING. </li></ul>
  9. 9. BRAIN LEARNING PRINCIPLE 5 <ul><li>EMOTIONS ARE CRTICAL TO PATTERNING. </li></ul>
  10. 10. BRAIN LEARNING PRINCIPLE 6 <ul><li>EVERY BRAIN SIMULTANEOUSLY PERCEIVES AND CREATES PARTS AND WHOLES. </li></ul>
  11. 11. BRAIN LEARNING PRINCIPLE 7 <ul><li>LEARNING INVOLVES BOTH FOCUSSED ATTENTION AND PERIPHERAL ATTENTION. </li></ul>
  12. 12. BRAIN LEARNING PRINCIPLE 8 <ul><li>LEARNING ALWAYS INVOLVES CONSCIOUS AND UNCONSCIOUS PROCESSES </li></ul>
  13. 13. BRAIN LEARNING PRINCIPLE 9 <ul><li>WE HAVE AT LEAST TWO WAYS OF ORGANIZING MEMORY. </li></ul>
  14. 14. BRAIN LEARNING PRINCIPLE 10 <ul><li>LEARNING IS DEVELOPMENTAL. </li></ul>
  15. 15. BRAIN LEARNINGPRINCIPLE 11 <ul><li>COMPLEX LEARNING IS ENHANCED BY CHALLENGE AND INHIBITED BY THREAT. </li></ul>
  16. 16. BRAIN LEARNING PRINCIPLE 12 <ul><li>EVERY BRAIN IS UNIQUELY ORGANIZED. </li></ul>
  17. 17. THREE CONDITIONS FOR LEARNING <ul><li>1. RELAXED ALERTNESS: CONSISTING OF LOW THREAT AND HIGH-CHALLENGE. </li></ul><ul><li>2. ORCHESTRATED IMMERSION: MULTIPLE, COMPLEX AND AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCE. </li></ul><ul><li>3. ACTIVE PROCESSING: OF EXPERIENCE AS THE BASIS FOR MAKING MEANING. </li></ul>
  18. 18. REAL-LIFE EXAMPLES <ul><li>CREATING AN ENVIRONMENT TO SIMULATE REALITY. </li></ul><ul><li>AND INTERESTING CONTEXT TO PRESENT NEW TOPICS. </li></ul>
  19. 19. WHAT DOES A BRAIN-BASED TEACHER DO? <ul><li>A BRAIN COMPATIBLE TEACHER IS ONE THAT UNDERSTANDS THE PRINCIPLES AND USES STRATEGIES IN A PURPOSEFUL WAY. </li></ul><ul><li>IT IS AN EDUCATOR WHO UNDERSTANDS THE REASONING BEHIND THEIR TEACHING. </li></ul><ul><li>IT IS ALSO ONE WHO STAYS CONSTANTLY UPDATED THROUGH CONTINUOUS PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT. </li></ul>
  20. 20. <ul><li>THANK YOU </li></ul><ul><li>VERY MUCH! </li></ul>
