INSIGHTS FROM THE BRAIN ABOUT EDUCATION
The brain is NOT a tabula rasa
One can't effectively teach it any old thing, in any old way. One can, however, take advantage of what it knows, how it learns, and its inclination to explore.
Brains are all different from one another
There is no single best educational strategy applicable to all.
Individual brains have different, compartmentalized ways of knowing.
One needs to teach and value simultaneously in different ways.
No one is in charge.
Trust individuals and their generative interactions.
Brains are organized to ACTIVELY learn.
The need is for room, the wherewithal to explore and try things out, and rich opportunities to interact with others.
