Interesting brain ideas
50 Brain Facts Every Educator Should Know Brain Development and Learning Read on to learn the first 13 interesting facts about how the brain develops, what can affect that development, and how learning is impacted. 1.Read aloud. Parents and teachers who read aloud and talk often to young children are promoting brain development. 2.Bilingual brains. Children who learn two languages before the age of five have a different brain structure than children who learn only one language. 3.Child abuse and the brain. Studies have shown that child abuse can change the way the brain develops and can negatively affect learning. 4.New neurons. Throughout life, mental activity promotes the production of new neurons in the brain. 5.Handedness. Those who are left-handed or ambidextrous have a corpus collosum that is about 11% larger than those who are right-handed. 6.Brain growth. The human brain continues to grow until about age 18. 7.Stimulating environment. If a child is in a stimulating environment, she has a 25% greater ability to learn . Conversely, if she is in an environment with low stimulation, she has 25% less ability to learn. 8.Creative vs. methodical. Scientists have shown that creative thinkers’ brains work in different ways from the brains of those who think more methodically. 9.Food and intelligence. One study looked at students in New York and showed that those who ate lunches that did not include artificial flavors, preservatives, and dyes did 14% better on IQ tests than the students who ate lunches with these additives. 10.Boredom. Humans have an innate curiosity, but when they have a lack of stimulation, boredom sets in. 11.Learning new things. A study shows that when people are learning new things, their brains change very quickly. Those learning to juggle showed change in the brain in as little as seven days. 12.Music. Children who take music lessons show a considerable increase in the ability to learn. 13.Reading faces. The area of the brain called the amygdala is responsible for the ability to read someone’s face for clues to how they are feeling.

Im clearly Right brained!!!! Left Brain / Right Brain How we write: The parts of the brain that are responsible for processing speech and language are highly specialized and located on the outside of the left side of the brain. The parts of the brain that keep the heart beating are located deep inside the brain, where they are much better protected from the external world.
Great visual in the differences between left and right brain learning styles. The website also has interesting info on Dyslexia... etc.
Right brain / Left brain. Learning music requires such coordination between the brain's hemispheres - love this visual to explain it to someone.
Right brain / Left brain - those diagnosed with NLD have impaired right brain functions and rely heavily on left brain functions as their strengths.
Right brain / Left brain Find activities to exercise and stimulate each side of the brain.
Right brain / Left brain....always been fascinated with the two sides of the brain...

Brain-based strategies. Number 4 (Thinking about thinking) is something that I think I could improve on helping my kids do. One thing that a teacher shared with me to help students do this (and give teachers feedback) is having the kids respond to the following at the end of class: What is one thing that worked for you today? What is one thing that did not help you learn?

Differentiated instruction is a teaching approach in which educational content, process, and product are adapted according to student readiness, interest, and learning profile. Unlike individualized instruction, in which teaching must be directed to the specific needs and skills of each individual student, differentiated instruction addresses the needs of student clusters.

How Does the Act of Writing Affect the Brain? "Every engaging story must…ignite the brain’s hardwired desire to learn what happens next. When writers tap into the evolutionary purpose of story and electrify our curiosity, it triggers a delicious dopamine rush that tells us to pay attention. Without it, even the most perfect prose won’t hold anyone’s interest." - Lisa Cron

Great 3 minute video introduction to use in a growth mindset lesson. Shows how the brain learns, factors that affect how well brains learn, and challenges the idea that intelligence is fixed and unchangeable. A growth mindset shows how the brain is constantly learning, and that by learning something new it actually gets stronger.
