  • This is where the spinal cord connects to the head it is your fight or flight trigger When you induce fear or stress- the amygdala will prevent a student from learning because it will not allow those impules, those new learnings into the brainThis is why it is so important to have a stress free environment ( story of sitting here on Frida trying to understand what cathy was saying about brain research)
  • This is the part of the brain that turns an idea into a belief, this can change this is the lens at which you see stuffCathy’s story about traveling as a consultantThe brain seeks to confirm your beliefTurn and talk allows the brain to turn from I can’t to I can
  • How can we get all of this information off of the table to store it in long term memory? We are innately social beings, that is a natural progressionThis is when you see chunking new info is important to students because our tables are fullThink of our desks… there are piles of stuff, this is happening in our brains as well.
  • We need to apply it We need to use it We need to make meaning of it (information)

    19. 19. Limbic System- The Amygdala<br />Fight or Flight center of the brain<br />If the sensory data is perceived as a threat, or the student feels stress, it triggers “survival mode”<br />Survival mode diverts information from the thinking brain to the automatic centers.<br />
    20. 20. Reticular Activating System - RAS<br />Attention activating switching system, located in the brainstem<br />All messages pass through the RAS to gain entry to the higher thinking brain<br />RAS is the filter that “turns on” the level of response and alertness<br />All new learning passes through this section<br />
    21. 21. Memory Table- Short-Term Memory<br />Holds all of the new information until we process it and move it to long term memory<br />Holds 3-5 pieces of new information in young children<br />Holds 5-7 pieces of new information in children in grades three to six<br />Hold 7-10 pieces of new information in middle school age to adults<br />
    22. 22. Long Term Memory <br />We need to process the information into long term memory or we will lose it<br />Items are processed, categorized and stored for later use<br />
