Krell, Jason; Todd, Anderson; Dolecki, Patrick K. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
Modernizing classroom pedagogical practice requires openness to revisiting previously held assumptions and theories about what constitutes authentic teaching/learning cycles. The ever-growing gap between the number of stimuli that students are exposed to and their available attentional resources indicates that sustained attention may have…

Takeuchi, Naoyuki; Mori, Takayuki; Suzukamo, Yoshimi; Izumi, Shin-Ichi – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2019
Metacognitive functions are important for both teachers and students to facilitate teaching and learning. The prefrontal cortex (PFC) plays a proven role in metacognition. As a pilot study, we evaluated the PFC activity of teachers and students using near-infrared spectroscopy devices to explore the neural mechanism of PFC underlying metacognitive…

Hauser, Marc D. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2018
The mind and brain sciences have uncovered important details about the mechanisms underlying goal attainment, including strategies to overcome obstacles. A suite of self-regulatory strategies have made relatively little contact with education, despite cost-effective methods and striking results in both educational contexts as well as other areas…

Markant, Douglas B.; Ruggeri, Azzurra; Gureckis, Todd M.; Xu, Fei – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2016
Despite widespread consensus among educators that "active learning" leads to better outcomes than comparatively passive forms of instruction, it is often unclear why these benefits arise. In this article, we review research showing that the opportunity to control the information experienced while learning leads to improved memory…

Sodian, Beate; Frith, Uta – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2008
The cognitive control of behavior is critical for success in school. The emergence of self-control in development has been linked to the ability to represent one's own and others' mental states (theory of mind and metacognition). Despite rapid progress in exploring the neural correlates of both mind reading and executive function in recent years,…

Schneider, Wolfgang – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2008
This article gives an overview of developmental trends in research on metacognition in children and adolescents. Whereas a first wave of studies focused on the assessment of declarative and procedural metacognitive knowledge in schoolchildren and adolescents, a second wave focused on very young children's "theory of mind" (ToM). Findings from a…
