Educators' Views on the Role of Neuroscience in Education: Findings from a Study of UK and International Perspectives
Pickering, Susan J.; Howard-Jones, Paul
Mind, Brain, and Education, v1 n3 p109-113 Sep 2007
This report summarizes findings from a study of educators' views on the role of the brain in education. Responses were sought using questionnaires (n= 189), followed by a smaller number of in-depth interviews (n= 11). Results show a high level of enthusiasm for attempts to interrelate neuroscience and education, although conceptualizations about what this entails differ widely. Findings suggest that communication with practitioners may become a key factor influencing the success of attempts to enrich classroom practice with scientific understanding about the brain and mind.
