Brain Plasticity and the Art of Teaching to Learn
Martinez, Margaret
Journal of Educational Technology, v1 n4 p30-41 Jan-Mar 2005
"Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself, "wrote Leo Tolstoy. Have you ever thought about how learning changes your brain? If yes, this paper may help you explore the research that will change our learning landscape in the next few years! Recent developers in the neurosciences and education research are beginning to have a significant impact on our understanding about empowering individuals to learn more successfully. Neuroscientists are exploring brain processes and the implications on human learning. They are urging educators to gain a better understanding of the brain plasticity research for improving educational practice. In this paper, readers will see for themselves how specific learning activities change the brain and provide a framework for enhancing the learning process. This framework should follow a 4-step learning process, including sensing, recognition, interpretation, and finally action or integration. Readers will both visualize and experience the learning process and explore their own disposition to learn, examine the theory that grounds this research, and consider strategies and pathways that lead to improved learning for diverse learning audiences.
