Weber, Rachel C.; Denyer, Ronan; Motamed Yeganeh, Negin; Maja, Rachel; Murphy, Meagan; Martin, Stephanie; Chiu, Larissa; Nguy, Veronique; White, Katherine; Boyd, Lara – Learning: Research and Practice, 2019
Learning disabilities are currently conceptualised as involving underlying weaknesses in cognitive processing, which has prompted growing interest in cognitive interventions that may alleviate learning challenges. One such programme¬†, the Arrowsmith programme, targets a broad array of cognitive domains, but has not been evaluated. This study…

Tham, Rachel; Walker, Zachary; Tan, Shi Hui Desiree; Low, Li Tong; Annabel Chen, Shen-Hsing – Learning: Research and Practice, 2019
Translating Neuroscience to education involves providing accurate and simplified information about neuroscience to teachers. The aim of this research was to understand if providing translated abstracts from neuroscientific articles helped teachers understand content more thoroughly. Surveys, experimental manipulation, and focus group discussions…

Walker, Zachary; Hale, James B.; Annabel Chen, Shen-Hsing; Poon, Kenneth – Learning: Research and Practice, 2019
The potential of educational neuroscience in teacher training and continuing professional development has been debated extensively, yet knowledge translation is largely absent in this field. Without objective methods for translating and disseminating educational neuroscience evidence, the impact of training on educators and the children they serve…

Jamaludin, Azilawati; Wei Loong, David Hung; Xuan, Lim Pei – Learning: Research and Practice, 2019
Learning is a complex phenomenon where a learner constitutes a system operating at neural, physiological, cognitive and social levels, with interactions between and across processes and levels, effecting neural to cognitive to social levels and vice versa. In tracing historical paradigms, theories of learning have been traditionally fragmented in…
