3 Brain science insights about adult learning

Matrix

A long long time ago people believed that the Sun orbits the Earth. Not so long ago people believed that we only use around 10% of our brain capacity and that once a neuron dies, the brain loses it forever. The brain is actually very active during our down-time phase.

Eclipsed – How the Great Eclipse of 2017 May Have Changed Our Brains Forever

Learningtogo

The Earth, Sun and Moon combine in a complex dance to produce a total eclipse that is visible somewhere on the Earth approximately every 18 months, but the Earth is a big place. With the edges of the Sun still showing as a thin band of light, the effect looks like a brilliant diamond ring.

Perchance to Dream – How sleep affects learning, memory and brain health

Learningtogo

While your body and your conscious mind appear to zone out during sleep, your brain is still very active, and doing some amazing things. Rapid Eye Movement sleep (REM) changes this pattern of slowly descending into lower and lower brain and body activity levels. Wake up with the sun.

2017 – The Year of Progress and Purpose

Without going all brain science on you – in short, scientists say that such behaviors, such as building in positive filters are a learned and conscious effort. However, progress doesn’t suddenly raise up like the morning sun it takes awareness, work and purpose.

4 Unexpected Habits That Improve Memory

The average brain can house a million gigabytes of information. We all know that keeping a list is a great tool to help remember which groceries we need, but what about ways to permanently increase the brain’s performance? That is some serious storage space.

Why Training has a Bad Name (and how we can change it)

That is not how the brain is geared to work. The sun is bright here in 2016 with exciting ways to change up the training perception. Training that doesn’t give people a purpose or a sense of mastery is a waste of time, money and brain space.

Classical and Rigorous

We used to believe that the sun circled the earth, and that the world was flat. And, let me add, these old practices are not aligned with what we know about how our brains work. A recent twitter spat led me to some reflections, and I thought I’d share.

Blogging Inside or Outside the Corporate Firewall

Tony Karrer

I'm sure that some employers would prefer to own the blog, i.e., it's a Sun Computer owned blogging system, therefore when you leave Sun you leave your content behind. Certainly, if it's in your brain, you leave with it. Stephen Downes commented on my recent post - Personal Work and Learning Environments (PWLE) - More Discussion and said - I am opposed to the trend coming from the corporate learning side of the house to treat PLEs as work tools.

They see freedom, fame and fun associated with Richard Branson.

Knowledge and Learning In The News - 12/23/2006

Big Dog, Little Dog

Many have alluded to the importance of the environment on the developing brain. As a neuroscientist, I root and endorse that view in the bump and grind of brain cells. You are born with most of the brain cells you will ever have. It is the growth of the connections between the brain cells that accounts for the growth of the brain after birth. So even if you are a clone-that is, an identical twin-you will have a unique pattern of brain cell connections.
