Why Do Classrooms Need Brain-Based Strategies?
Brain-based strategies help students in maximizing learning opportunities and enhance their academic growth.
FREMONT, CA: Brain-based learning cheers student’s independence and autonomy of learning. Rather than relying on the teachers for a learning experience, learners can take ownership and discover how to be self-directed to achieve their educational goals. Additionally, pupils also learn how to manage their tasks, prioritize their responsibilities, and collaborate with others.
Brain-based strategies guide leading-edge classroom and address the needs of the child in whole. By teaching the approach to students, it helps them become more reflective about their development.
Some of the strategies that teachers need to include in teaching brain-based learning are as below:
Physical Movement: It is essential for schools to ensure Physical Education (PE) training as it helps in oxygenation and enhances student’s instruction.
Socialization: Interaction is key to socialization, and brain-based instruction comprising collaborative strategies coach students on teamwork.
Embrace Differentiation: Most of the educators identify that all students learn differently, and so it is critical for them to teach students that the differences are normal.
Chunk Learning: Human brain can process only a particular amount of information in a given time so teachers must break a complex task into manageable chunks to facilitate instruction. Brain-Based learning research shows that learners remember teaching when presented in the form of segments.
Encourage Creativity: Creativity plays a significant role in the way students’ think, and so arts programs should be included in their curriculum.
Make Emotional Connections: Teachers should make an emotional connection while explaining a concept which helps to strengthen the topics in the learner’s mind.
Teach Stress Management: Students like teachers experience stress and positive stress motivates students in performing well on an exam or complete an assignment. While, negative pressure, on the other hand, creates distractions and damage student’s learning. So, it is vital for students to learn that everyone experiences stress and that instruction on stress-management is critical.
