A Role for Neuroscience in Shaping Contemporary Education Policy
Shore, Rebecca; Bryant, Joel
AASA Journal of Scholarship & Practice, v8 n3 p30-42 Fall 2011
Advanced technologies have made it possible for neuroscientists to make remarkable discoveries regarding how our brains learn. This research should provide new insights into the designs of learning environments. This essay is an attempt to suggest how the possibilities of neuroscience might be employed to meet contemporary educational demands, through practice in schools, integration of university departments, and through policy decisions. Contextually we situate our attempt in a frame that seeks to describe its role rather than define its limitations. In addition, we cite claims that depict pedagogical practice (and success) to further define neuro-applications for neuro-educators.
