Making the Most Out of Online LearningQ&A with Mariale Hardiman, Ed.D.
Online learning can be quite effective. Emotional connections with students are key to success, says Mariale Hardiman, Ed.D.—and parents don’t have to be teachers to help their children understand and apply what they are learning online.
Promoting Brain-Science Literacy in the K-12 Classroom
There are many simple ways to incorporate neuroscience into the K-12 classroom, even when the subject is not explicitly part of the curriculum. Here, Michaela Labriole, a science instructor at the New York Hall of Science, provides tangible examples of how teachers can encourage brain-science literacy in students at a time when growing knowledge of the brain is shaping our understanding of how to best foster learning. A complementary article to "The Brain in Science Education: What Should Everyone Learn?"
The Science of EducationInforming Teaching and Learning through the Brain Sciences
Discoveries about how the brain learns are fueling interest in applying neuroscience in the classroom. In the new field of neuroeducation, scientists and educators should join forces to develop goals for learning-related research, the authors argue.
‘Neuroeducation’ Emerges as Insights into Brain Development, Learning Abilities Grow
An interdisciplinary field that combines neuroscience, psychology and education to create improved teaching methods and curricula is close to prime time as researchers gain a more sophisticated understanding of how young minds develop and learn, leading education and brain experts say.
