Brain-Based Learning

Brain-based learning incorporates neuroscience into curriculum and lesson design.  Learning that is quick and efficient. According to Education Reform, the research that informs this method focuses on the brain’s ability to change, remap, and reorganize itself while learning new information. Exercise, diet, and stress levels all have an impact on this ability. The emotional state of a person influences their learning ability as well.

When information is presented effectively, the brain functions better, its resilience increases, and its overall working intelligence improves. Learning causes physical changes in the brain, according to research. As a result, the more new skills that are practiced, the easier it is to learn.

Teachers use this research to implement brain-based learning principles in the school environment. They concentrate on reducing stress, effectively delivering material, increasing student movement, and incorporating opportunities for practice. While the principles remain the same regardless of a student’s age, people begin to learn differently as they grow older. As a result, the methods for delivering these principles change accordingly.
