Brain-Based Learning Environment Quote – Robert W. Lucas
There has been a lot of brain-based learning research completed in recent years that point to the importance of active engagement of learners in order to maximize learning potential. Designing and delivering learning events that focus on principles of adult learning (andragogy) principles and apply research on how the brain best gains, retains, recalls, and uses what it experiences helps maximize learning potential.
Brain-Based Learning Environment Quote
“Create learning environments filled with the tools needed for sensory and physical stimulation, offer guidance and support to learners, and then stand back and watch the learning occur.”
Using games, puzzles, kinesthetic activities, and movement and other engagement strategies coupled with techniques that engage all the other senses is an easy way to make learning more fun and functional. Such an approach can potentially create a situation in which learners use their whole brain to address issues, challenges, and information provided to them.
