The Learning Renaissance

Brain Plasticity – The Brain’s Ability to Change and Grow Over Time, by Andrej Dethlefsen

l

Nineteenth century phrenologists thought that each function of the brain was discrete and operated like a filing cabinet to contain information about subjects. We now know that the brain functions on electrical impulses and the pathways through synaptic connections are not fixed, but are plastic, capable of being remoulded and re-thought through.

About educationalist04

I'm convinced we can, as a species, do much better than this if we set our minds to being much more positive and productive towards our fellow humans. The solution is learning - creating independent and autonomous learners who can problem solve, innovate and create a better more equitable and sustainable world. My books, Future Proof Your School and Re-Examining Success together with this blog, explore how better learning outcomes for all can be achieved.
