Pasquinelli, Elena; Farina, Mathieu; Bedel, Audrey; Casati, Roberto – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2021
While very popular in public discourse about education, critical thinking education is still a work in progress. Two key conditions for successfully addressing critical thinking education are lacking: (a) the availability of a clear, specific, and operational definition, and (b) a deeper understanding of the natural cognitive bases of critical…

Luria, Ela; Shalom, Maya; Levy, Daniel A. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2021
The Self-Determination Theory of motivation (SDT) has significantly guided educational policy and research. It maintains that learning succeeds when brought about by autonomous rather than controlled motivation, and that extrinsic reward motivation cannot engender effective learning. We present an alternative approach, rooted in recent insights…

Baxter, Peta; Bekkering, Harold; Dijkstra, Ton; Droop, Mienke; van den Hurk, Marianne; Léoné, Frank – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2021
Cognitive neuroscience has gained significant insight into the mechanisms underlying the mental lexicon and their impact on second language vocabulary learning. However, relatively little effort has been put into understanding how these mechanisms may impact instructional practices. We attempt to bridge this gap. Towards that end, we first…

Gray, Maureen E.; Holyoak, Keith J. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2021
Analogy is a powerful tool for fostering conceptual understanding and transfer in STEM and other fields. Well-constructed analogical comparisons focus attention on the causal-relational structure of STEM concepts, and provide a powerful capability to draw inferences based on a well-understood source domain that can be applied to a novel target…

Tunjungsari, Harini; Takwin, Bagus – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2021
Previous publications used the term critical thinking (CT) skills and critical thinking practice interchangeably. This article describes the difference between them, defining skills as prerequisite abilities, while practices as real activities. People may have skills, but they do not always use them in everyday life. The question is what triggers…

Li, Lu; Gow, Andrew Douglas Isherwood; Zhou, Jiaxian – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2020
Humans are inherently emotional creatures due to our social nature, and emotions are able to influence how well we learn and even affect academic outcomes. Emotions are rarely a chief concern in educational settings, and we will discuss the mechanisms underlying how emotions are processed in the brain and how they influence the key aspects of…

Carey, Lisa B.; Schmidt, Jonathan; Dommestrup, Aila K.; Pritchard, Alison E.; Stone, Maureen; Grasmick, Nancy; Mahone, E. Mark; Denckla, Martha B.; Jacobson, Lisa A. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2020
The field of Mind, Brain, and Education (MBE) has debated the strategies and merit of training teachers in principles of neuroscience. A previous study argued for groups of teachers to be trained as "educational engineers" capable of translating the work of cognitive neuroscientists and education researchers into practical application.…

Catherine, L'Ecuyer; Javier, Bernacer; Francisco, Güell – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2020
Maria Montessori developed an educational program during the first half of the 20th century. Nowadays, the Montessori method (MM) is considered one of the main alternatives to teacher-paced conventional preschool education. This review aims to open a dialogue between the MM and current understanding of neurodevelopment. Four conceptual pillars of…

Erbeli, Florina – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
Given a shift in the role of genetics in the context of special education, this commentary outlines advances in our understanding of genetic influences on learning disabilities. In particular, it focuses on advances that have implications for instruction and interventions conducted by special educators, and calls for broadening of the scope of…

Uncapher, Melina R. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
Since the advent of computers, scientists who study how people learn have been utilizing technology to uncover the cognitive and neural mechanisms of learning. Recent technological advances have allowed learning scientists to move their research out of the lab and into the wild, to investigate how students learn in real-world environments.…

Rosenberg-Lee, Miriam – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2018
The promise of educational neuroscience lies in its potential to uncover mechanistic insights into the science of learning. However, to realize that promise, the field must overcome a fundamental difference between the constituent disciplines: neuroscience is primarily concerned with understanding how the brain works; whereas education attempts to…

Burgess, Laura G.; Riddell, Patricia M.; Fancourt, Amy; Murayama, Kou – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2018
This article provides an overview of research on social contagion in the context of education. We highlight the importance of students' social interactions in school, considering contagion between peers and contagion from teachers to students, using a motivation perspective. The framework of contagion is introduced broadly, followed by a focused…

Anreiter, Ina; Sokolowski, H. Moriah; Sokolowski, Marla B. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2018
Individuals of the same species display remarkable variation in behavior, even in identical contexts. Increasing complexity in behavioral phenotypes brings with it an increase in individual variation in the manifestation of those phenotypes, and human behavior undoubtedly stands at the pinnacle of complexity. In this article, we discuss current…

Commissar, Lia; Brookman-Byrne, Annie – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2018
In September 2016, the International Mind, Brain, and Education Society (IMBES) biennial conference took place in Toronto, Canada. The pre-conference (organized by the Wellcome Trust) was designed to share new findings, lessons learned, and inspirational innovation within the field, and to encourage the community to not only identify current…

Stafford-Brizard, K. Brooke; Cantor, Pamela; Rose, L. Todd – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2017
Mind, brain, and education is a field developed with two key purposes: (1) to accelerate the knowledge developed through research by using an interdisciplinary approach, and (2) to create a bridge to connect and apply this knowledge to educational practice. While great progress has been made with regard to the interdisciplinary efforts of mind,…
