As part of the British Council Five on 5 series of webinars on World Teachers’ Day, Rachael Roberts presents a webinar Using your brain: what neuroscience can teach us about learning.
About the webinar
Considering that our brains are the key tool for learning, it is surprising how rarely teacher education focuses on neuroscience. Education is full of vague statements about only using 10% of our brains, or using the right or left brain, or being a kinaesthetic learner, but are these really based in science? In this session we look at what recent research has to tell us about learning, looking specifically at motivation and memory, and how to apply these findings in the classroom to help students learn more easily and effectively.
