Educational neuroscience (also ‘Neuroeducation’ and ‘Mind, Brain and Education’) are growing disciplines which bring together neuroscience, psychology and education with the aim to produce powerful school learning experiences. As professionals facilitating learning on a daily basis, it is clear why teachers want to understand more about the brain and learning. However the reality is that not all ‘brain-based’ resources and programmes available are based on research. With a move towards education becoming more evidence informed, there is great interest to discover if this knowledge can improve education, but also in helping us to understand why things that work are so successful.
This talk will explore some of the research and wider work taking place in this field, and the link to learning technology.
The Association for Learning Technology (ALT) is an independent charity (UK registered charity no.1160039), funded through membership contributions and events. ALT members are part of a growing community of learning technology professionals, whose shared expertise helps us to realise our aim to promote the effective, efficient and informed understanding and use of learning technology.
