Transcript of Learning & The Brain

Anticipation Guide
1. "The brain is hardwired." What you were born with is what you have until you die.

2. Learning is related to intelligence.

3. Our brain processes everything that we see.

4. Executive Functions are skills that we all use every day.

5. Some kids are just lazy and unmotivated and it has nothing to do with the brain.

What does the brain need to work well?
Exercise boosts brain power.
Briefly exercising for 20 minutes facilitates information processing and memory functions.
Exercise increases heart rate, which pumps more OXYGEN to the brain.
Exercise stimulates the brain plasticity

EXERCISE
SLEEP
Sleep is needed to regenerate certain parts of the body, especially the brain, so that it may continue to function optimally.

Certain stages of sleep are needed for the regeneration of neurons within the cerebral cortex while other stages of sleep seem to be used for forming new memories and generating new synaptic connections.

NUTRITION
Healthy Foods and Water
It was recently observed that dehydration causes shrinkage of brain tissue.

Prolonged states of reduced water intake may adversely impact executive functions.**
**Dehydration affects brain structure and function in healthy adolescents.Kempton MJ, Ettinger U, Foster R, Williams SC, Calvert GA, Hampshire A, Zelaya FO, O'Gorman RL, McMorris T, Owen AM, Smith MS. Hum Brain Mapp. 2011 Jan;32(1):71-9. doi: 10.1002/hbm.20999.

*Food For Brain Health By Michael Roizen, MD Chief Wellness Officer, Cleveland Clinic
http://my.clevelandclinic.org/ccf/media/files/Neurological_Institute/Cleveland-Clinic-Food-for-Brain-Health-Michael-Roizen.pdf
The brain acts as a dense network of fiber pathways consisting of approximately 100 billion neurons... Learning happens through a network of neurons, sensory information is transmitted by synapses along the neural pathway and stored temporarily in short-term memory...Neuroscientists have long believed that learning and memory formation are made by the strengthening and weakening of connections among brain cells.*
*How the Brain Learns By DONALD J. FORD, PH.D., C.P.T.

Attention
Memory
Executive Functions
In Closing...
"Attention is key to both learning and memory...we must rally our attention, focus it, sustain it, monitor it, shift it, prioritize it, and rest it...We have to resist the temptation to divert our attention toward the ever-growing stimuli competing to seduce our attention in their direction"
- David B. Daniel, PHD Managing Editor, Mind, Brain and Education Journal
Students only have about five memory spaces available in short-term memory. You can not change the number of memory spaces that a person has, only how much information you can fit in a space.

Inhibitory control (resisting distractions, giving a more considered
response, avoiding one’s first reaction)

Strategy...Stimulate more of the senses.

If more senses are stimulated during the learning experience, the brain’s memory is often increased.
Strategy...Incorporate some type of exercise or movement in your class.

For Example you could do some BRAIN GYM exercises.
Strategy...Chunk information

If you chunk information together through RHYMES, SONGS, or MNEMONICS, it will not overload your students working memory.
