A Multiperspective Approach to Neuroeducational Research
Howard-Jones, Paul A.
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v43 n1 p24-30 Feb 2011
There is increasing interest in research that combines neuroscientific and educational perspectives on learning, but significant philosophical issues divide these perspectives. This article examines the value of such neuroeducational research and how concepts from different perspectives may be interrelated through a "level of actions" model. This model, which encourages a multiperspective approach, may be helpful in avoiding some of the worst transgressions of sense-making in constructing concepts that span neuroscience and education. Application of the model is explored in the context of teaching strategies intended to foster creativity, and its affordances and limitations are discussed. (Contains 1 note and 1 figure.)
