What We Can Learn From How the Brain Works (session #220)
The brain is an amazing thing. Most of us have no idea what’s really going on inside our heads. Yet brain scientists have uncovered details every educator should know. How do we learn? What exactly do sleep and stress do to our brains? Why is multi-tasking a myth? Why is it so easy to forget—and so important to repeat new knowledge? Brain Rules is about what we know for sure, and what we might do about it.



PARTICIPANTS

John Medina, Developmental Molecular Biologist, University of Washington School of Medicine; Director, Brain Center for Applied Learning Research, Seattle Pacific University, Washington


10:15 AM -- 11:15 AM
More with John Medina (session #227)
This is your opportunity to question Dr. Medina on how to take his illustrations of how the brain works to the next level. For example, what does what you learned mean for teacher preparation programs? For school schedules? For the use of technology?
