Mind, Brain, and Education Science
A Comprehensive Guide to the New Brain-based TeachingBook - 2011
Establishing the parameters and goals of the new field of mind, brain, and education science, this work explains the new transdisciplinary academic field that has grown out of the intersection of neuroscience, education, and psychology. The trend in "brain-based teaching" has been growing for the past twenty years and has exploded in the past five to become the most authoritative pedagogy for best learning results. Aimed at teachers, teacher trainers and policy makers, and anyone interested in the future of education in America and beyond, it responds to the clamor for help in identifying what information could and should apply in classrooms with confidence, and what information is simply commercial hype. Combining a review of the literature, as well as interviews with over twenty thought leaders in the field from six different countries, this book describes the birth and future of this new discipline. It also looks at the foundations, standards, and history of the field, outlining the ways that new information should be judged. Well-established information is separated from "neuromyths" to help teachers split the wheat from the chaff in classroom planning, instruction and teaching methodology.
