No doubt adults, children and even babies – all of us have the ability to grow and adapt to daily challenges in life. The fact is the twenty-first century promises to be “the century of brain.” The above technologies and other advances will enable us to shed light on the problems of the human mind. The time has come for us to apply the results of brain science research to improving education as a social technology. There is “art of changing the brain” that comes down to some things that we have always known. Practice and meaning are the most important parts of this art, but of course the student will not practice in a meaningful way unless she cares. Ultimately it is the learner that is in control. The teacher can arrange the conditions and the challenges in ways that engage the learner, but still we must have faith in learning itself.
“Three principles from brain research: emotional safety, appropriate challenges, and self constructed meaning suggest that a one-size-fits-all approach to classroom instruction teaching is ineffective for most students and harmful to some.”
There are no two children are alike. An enriched environment for one is not necessarily enriched for another.
No two children learn in the identical way.
In the classroom we should teach children to think for themselves.
One way is to group children so they are talking to each other, they are asking questions of each other, they are learning to be teachers. One of the most important concepts for a 5 year old to know is that he or she can teach because you have to understand something to teach it.”
You can vote here your opinion about online online schools. Do people see the benefits of online learning getting the most out of online college experience? According to CCA consulting, nearly 50% of higher
education institutions currently engage in some type of online learning. Academic and professional organizations agree that using web-based learning environments can offer sound pedagogical benefits. According to researchers from Cornell University, “the web provides significant new functionality in transmitting information to the student and providing forums for exchange”.
