Transcript of Embracing Learning

Learning - a never ending journey 1. We only use 10% of our brains.
2. You should drink 8 glasses of water daily.
3. Fingernails and hair grow after death.
4. Shaved hair grows back faster, courser,
and darker
5. Reading in dim light ruins your eyesight.
6. Eating turkey makes you drowsy.
7. Mobile phones are dangerous in hospitals. What do you believe? As we receive stimuli and initiate movement,
our neurons form extensions (called
dendrites) to other neurons which form
pathways through which we interact with
the world. The process of nerve cells
connecting and networking is learning
and thought.
Do you remember your ABC's? Whenever we engage in NEW behavior, our
brain remodels itself – a process that continues throughout life. The more we use our brain AND body, the more our brains will grow. http://www.scientificpsychic.com/mind/mind1.html We are all uniquely wired – some of our neural wiring came with our birth package. Learning
may be influenced by dominance of our eyes,
ears or hands. One way to determine
dominance is through laterality. How do we learn? Which side of the brain
do you use? http://www.perthnow.com.au/fun-games/left-brain-vs-right-brain/story-e6frg46u-1111114517613 What does “left brain” look like? Logical, analytical, sequential, linear,
rational, realistic, dominant, mathematical, scientific, judgmental, evaluative What does “right brain” look like? Intuitive, holistic, non-linear, feeling,
multiple processing, divergent thinking
(many conclusions), fantasy, artistic,
musical, non-judgmental How can you make your brain smarter?
First - take a test to see if your brain is ready
for an "upgrade". How's your brain doing? Ready for more? Which way is the bus moving? Exercise your brain Exercise fuels the brain with oxygen and
feeds high energy nutrients needed for learning.
Vigorous exercise improves productivity and performance (60 minutes/day, 3 days per week
– goal is 180 minutes per week minimum) “No other drug or behavioral intervention
seems to be as effective as exercise in terms
of having both neuroprotective and
neuroplasticity effects.”
Cotman, CW. Exercise and Sport Sciences
Reviews, 30, 75-79.
