The Teaching Brain
Battro, Antonio M.
Mind, Brain, and Education, v4 n1 p28-33 Mar 2010
Animals cannot teach as humans do. Therefore, we lack the experimental support of animal studies that are so important to understand the evolution of our basic learning skills but are useless to explore the development of the teaching skills, unique to humans. And most important: children teach! We have at least two new challenges in our Mind, Brain, and Education program regarding the teaching brain. First, to implement new methods to process online the way children teach in the digital environment since the first grade of schooling with the help of computers. Second, we may also explore the teaching brain of children and adults, with the help of wearable brain image technologies in a real classroom setting. Both projects may interact in a dynamic way in neuroeducation.
