Brain-Based Learning & Thinking-Based Learning
In the 21st century, the profound discovery in neuroscience takes education professionalism to a new level. A key goal of this Expo is to offer educators concrete and practical suggestions in connecting neurological findings to pedagogy. To enable more learners excel in their learning, we need a community of educators who design and deliver lessons with better understanding on how human brains react to the physical, social and emotional learning environment; how learning tasks can be structured to challenge the brain to perform higher cognitive functions like making meaning or finding patterns, how to gain learners’ attention and better facilitate the balance of brain chemicals.
With the brain as the hardware in its right state of learning, the purposeful infusion of Thinking skills offer learners the software for powerful conceptualization of learning. Skilful thinking does not come naturally, just like we are all born to swim but not everyone becomes skilful swimmer. Teachers who design lessons employing thinking instructions; variety of thinking tools and opportunities for learners to visualize their thinking coach learners in becoming powerful thinkers throughout their lifetime.
