Today's video is from cognitive scientist, Daniel Willingham, on brain-based education:
This is a good video to point your friends to the next time one of those new brain-based education fads comes knocking on your school district's door.
As Willingham makes clear, most of the "programs" out there trying to capitalize on important-sounding "brain-based" terminology are mostly bunk. He also explains why.
If you haven't done so yet, go read every one of Willingham's cognitive science articles from AFT's American Educator. You'll be the better person for it. (or at least you'll stop leaving me silly comments showing you haven't read them.)
