The Neuron-O-Bot


The Neuron-O-Bot Icon

As educators, we are charged with motivating our students to absorb a vast amount of information, comprehend it, and store it in long term memory so it can be recalled for future use. Since the human brain is responsible for this complex task, it seems wise to consider what neuroscientists are learning about cognition and the brain. How can brain research help us develop powerful lessons and learning environments that improve the retention of new knowledge and motivate students to want to learn?
 
nbThroughout the units you’ll see the Neuron-O-Bot icon wherever a brain compatible strategy, procedure, or activity is first used. Clicking on the Neuron-O-Bot icon will link you to current research or information explaining how these practices support what we know about how the brain learns best. 

Resources used for the Neuron-O-Bot information can be found in the  “Bibliography of Brain Resources” located under Neuron-O-Bot in the main navigation menu.  The bibliography includes current titles from well-known neuroscientists and educators as well as informative websites that will provide you with useful background information on the brain and brain compatible learning strategies. The suggested titles promise to stimulate exciting discussion if your school uses the Teachers As Readers model for professional development. The resources invite you to take a close look at education and the way we teach today. Is there a better way? Can knowing more about the brain help us become better teachers? Since there is a strong link between the brain and learning, the answer is probably “yes”. Most certainly, implementing brain compatible strategies will make learning meaningful and exciting and therefore improve your students’ attitude toward learning. If the brain is the key to true learning, then we have to turn the key. We can’t continue to let our students lock us out.
