In this week’s video blog, I go through the 12 brain rules from Dr. John Medina’s awesome book “Brain Rules”. I discuss each of the brain rules and then give some insights about how students and educators can use these rules to learn and teach more effectively. I share some great information so please watch and enjoy.
Here is a brief recap of the 12 brain rules:
Rule #1: Exercise boosts brain power.
Rule #2: The human brain evolved, too.
Rule #3: Every brain is wired differently.
Rule #4: People don’t pay attention to boring things.
Rule #5: Repeat to remember (short-term memory).
Rule #6: Repeat to remember (long-term memory).
Rule #7: Sleep well, think well.
Rule #8: Stressed brains do not learn the same way as non-stressed brains.
Rule #9: Stimulate more of the senses at the same time.
Rule #10: Vision trumps all other senses.
Rule #11: Male and female brains are different.
Rule #12: We are powerful and natural learners.
Until next week, happy learning!
