Brain Rules for Students and Educators

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!

  1. “Rule #2: The human brain evolved, too.”
    No, it didn’t. The Darwinian Delusion has no evidence that it has ever been a thing based in reality. It is 100% faith in blind dogmatic assertions. The sooner we acknowledge that God created the world and ourselves, that we’re sinners who need a Savior (Jesus), the sooner we will reverse our society’s mental depravity and foolish thinking. For more information, check out the “I don’t have enough faith to be an atheist” book.

    Thank you for this article. It’s nice to keep these rules in mind as we continue to learn.
