The Learning Renaissance

The Neuroscience of Better Feedback

Too often in schools we get hung up on homework and marking. We judge things in volume and in grades. I’ve always thought their might be a better way to encourage students to reflect on their performance and improve, rather than simply perform against a pre-set series of grades.

Better feedback, that is feedback designed to encourage reflection and changes in attitude and behaviours which improves performance, is the way forward.

This presentation from Dr Heidi Grant of Neuro Leadership explores the impact that neuroscience can have in the development of such a systematic approach to leadership.

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.

    It is a matter of happiness that the facts and findings of neuroscience will be introduced in classroom to improve the performance of school system.
    In fact, cognitive science has been applied in school system to advance the quality of teaching techniques. Learning mechanism of brain was never focused to make students active in learning process.
    Neuroscience can convert teaching classroom into learning classroom. In my opinion, teaching performance is the waste of school hours. So learning mechanism of neuroscience should be applied to develop the smart brainpage of knowledge chapter.
    Book to brain knowledge transfer is possible in the system of applied neuroscience for plasticity and learnography.
    Thank you.

      It seems we have a shared interest in making this happen… and as quickly as possible!
