Brain-Based Teaching in the Digital Age
Transcript of Brain-Based Teaching in the Digital Age
Brain Based Activities are Crucial
Students today think and process information fundamentally differently from their predecessors, as a result of being surrounded by new technology. “Digital natives” are compared with the older generation who are learning and adopting new technology known as “digital immigrants”. Playing "action" video and computer games has the positive effect of enhancing student's visual selective attention.
All parents and educators need to hear:
Video games are not the enemy, but the best opportunity we have to engage our kids in real learning.
How can we join the digital age?
Becoming a part of this transformation is something we must do because we are dealing with digital brains. So even if you are a digital dinosaur, it's not too late. Your brain can change, too. In fact, it's changing every day.
Provide highly individualized instruction
We know that to get the best results in terms of student learning, we must differentiate content, process, product, and environment. Using various forms of technology offers students a "one size fits one" approach to learning. It also offers students choice, which is so important to the brain and learning. They can choose digital or nondigital ways of showing what they know.
Brain-compatible strategies are learning-compatible strategies.
The use of technology for these changing brains is extremely compatible for learning. As the world of education changes from teacher centered to student centered, brain-compatible classrooms provide the foundation for learning.
