Brain-Based Learning and Education presents a new type of education that uses brain-based and self-control theory-driven training. Leaving aside the current focus in education on content knowledge, it examines essential character strengths such as selfcontrol, persistence, creativity, attention, memory, and social learning, and relates their relevance to learning. By bridging the research and application gap in education, this text not only covers the latest findings related to learning and teaching but also provides insights for application and practice for brain-based methods in health and education. This integration of neuroscience and education takes us from a deep understanding of brain function to the frontline of the classroom. Explains an integrative training mechanisms from the behavioral, neuroscientific, and physiological perspectives Presents brain-based practice methods that can be readily applied to the education system Addresses additional issues, such as stress, wandering mind, and individuality Includes stories and findings related to the brain, learning, and teaching

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Pädagogik - Schulpädagogik, Note: 2,0, Universität zu Köln (Pädagogisches Seminar), Veranstaltung: Oberseminar: Motivierende Seminarformen, 7 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Eigentlich wissen wir es alle: wir lernen nicht nur in Schulen und Universitäten, sondern wir lernen unser ganzes Leben lang. In Schulen und Universitäten fällt uns das Lernen jedoch meistens besonders schwer. Wir müssen uns mit Sachinhalten auseinandersetzen, die uns vielleicht gar nicht interessieren, die wir aber trotzdem irgendwie behalten müssen - zumindest bis zur nächsten Klausur, wo wir unser auswendiggelerntes Wissen „runterschreiben“ können, um es spätestens eine Woche danach wieder zu vergessen... Das kann doch nicht der wahre Sinn von Lernen sein! In seiner Freizeit, im Berufsleben, ja eigentlich jeden Tag, zu jeder Zeit, lernt der Mensch auch, allerdings dann eher unbewußt. Wenn man sich in seiner Freizeit mit etwas beschäftigt, steht eine ganz andere Motivation dahinter, als z. B. in der Schule Lateinvokabeln „büffeln“ zu müssen. Man verbindet positive Emotionen mit seinen Freizeittätigkeiten, so daß das Lernen da ganz leicht fällt und plötzlich sogar selbstverständlich wird. Mit diesem Phänomen beschäftigt sich die vorliegende Hausarbeit. Zu Beginn wird eine kurze Definition von „Lernen“ gegeben, schließlich ist dies der Kernbegriff der ganzen Arbeit. Dabei darf aber auch eine kurze Einführung in die physiologischen Grundlagen des Lernens nicht fehlen. Anschließend wird die kognitive Lernmethode und die noch recht neue Lernmethode des „Brain-Based Learning“ vorgestellt, wobei die wichtigsten Punkte gegenübergestellt werden. Am Ende der Arbeit wird versucht zu erläutern, welche Konsequenzen und Umstellungen Brain-Based Learning für den Schulalltag bedeuten würde. Vielleicht könnte man dadurch eines Tages wirklich erreichen, daß einem das Lernen in der Schule genauso leicht fällt, wie das Lernen in der Freizeit. [...]

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2003 im Fachbereich Pädagogik - Schulpädagogik, Note: 1,0, Universität zu Köln (Pädagogisches Seminar der Philosophischen Fakultät), Veranstaltung: Oberseminar: Auf der Suche nach motivierenden Seminarformen, 3 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Leidenschaftliches Interesse oder tödliche Langeweile? Wie wir einer Sache begegnen hängt in starkem Maße von unserer Motivation ab. Motivation bestimmt täglich unsere Handlungen, Reaktionen und Beschäftigungen. Sie verleiht uns die Energie zu unserem Tun und bestimmt die Ausrichtung unserer Tätigkeit. In diesem Sinn kann Motivation auch mit dem Motor und dem Lenkrad eines Autos verglichen werden. Entsprechend der großen Bedeutung, die Motivation in unserem Leben hat, existieren eine umfassende Motivationstheorie und eine Vielzahl von Motivationsmodellen, auf die in dieser Arbeit allerdings nicht eingegangen werden kann. Vielmehr soll es darum gehen, die Bedeutung der Motivation für schulisches Lernen und Unterrichten aufzuzeigen. Der Einfluss der Motivation auf kognitive Leistungen wird generell unterschätzt, obwohl die Leistungsmotivation, das heißt das Bedürfnis, Erfolg zu haben, ausschlaggebend für erfolgreiche Lernprozesse ist und sowohl die Quantität als auch die Qualität einer Leistung bestimmt. Wie gelingt es nun einem Lehrer, seine Schüler auf Dauer zu motivieren? Welche Sozialformen und Methoden wirken motivierend und fördern die Leistungsmotivation der Schüler? In dieser Arbeit werden die drei wichtigsten motivationsfördernden sozialen Strukturen sowie verschiedene Motivationstechniken vorgestellt und die Ursachen ihrer motivierenden Wirkung dargelegt. Dabei wird ersichtlich, dass sowohl die intrinsische Motivation, das heißt die Motivation, die ohne erkennbare Belohnung vorhanden ist, als auch die extrinsische Motivation, die von beobachtbaren Belohnungen abhängt, eine Rolle spielt. Die Techniken und Methoden zur Motivationsförderung erhalten dann eine weitere Grundlage durch das Konzept des Brain-Based Learning and Teaching, also des gehirnfundierten Lernens und Lehrens. Hierbei handelt es sich um zwölf Lehr-/ Lernprinzipien, deren Grundlagen in der Gehirnforschung liegen. Renate Nummela Caine und Geoffrey Caine integrierten verschiedenste Aspekte über die Funktionsweise des Gehirns und setzten diese zu bisherigen Vorstellungen vom Lernen und Unterrichten in Beziehung. Die Arbeit soll zeigen, welche Rolle die neurowissenschaftlichen Erkenntnisse für einen motivierenden Unterricht spielen.

Smartphones, videogames, webcasts, wikis, blogs, texting, emoticons. What does the rapidly changing digital landscape mean for classroom teaching? How has technology affected the brain development of students? How does it relate to what we know about learning styles, memory, and multiple intelligences? How can teachers close the digital divide that separates many of them from their students? In Brain-Based Teaching in the Digital Age, Marilee Sprenger answers these and other questions with research-based information and practical advice gained from her years as a classroom teacher and a consultant on brain-based teaching. As she puts it, "It's time to meet the digital brain.' We need to use the technology tools, learn the digital dialogue, and understand and relate better to our students." At the same time, she emphasizes the importance of educating the whole child by including exercise, music, and art in the classroom and helping students develop their social-emotional intelligence. Creativity, empathy, and the ability to synthesize material are 21st century skills that can't be ignored in the digital age. Readers will find easy-to-understand information about the digital brain and how it works, "high-tech" and "low-tech" strategies for everyday teaching and learning, and inspiration for creating classroom environments that will entice and encourage students at all grade levels. With this book as a guide, educators can move confidently across the digital divide to a world of new possibilities--for themselves and their students.

Establishing the parameters and goals of the new field of mind, brain, and education science. A groundbreaking work, Mind, Brain, and Education Science explains the new transdisciplinary academic field that has grown out of the intersection of neuroscience, education, and psychology. The trend in “brain-based teaching” has been growing for the past twenty years and has exploded in the past five to become the most authoritative pedagogy for best learning results. Aimed at teachers, teacher trainers and policy makers, and anyone interested in the future of education in America and beyond, Mind, Brain, and Education Science responds to the clamor for help in identifying what information could and should apply in classrooms with confidence, and what information is simply commercial hype. Combining an exhaustive review of the literature, as well as interviews with over twenty thought leaders in the field from six different countries, this book describes the birth and future of this new and groundbreaking discipline. Mind, Brain, and Education Science looks at the foundations, standards, and history of the field, outlining the ways that new information should be judged. Well-established information is elegantly separated from “neuromyths” to help teachers split the wheat from the chaff in classroom planning, instruction and teaching methodology.
