Our theme this month is, “Making Connections: It’s a No Brainer!”
We selected this theme for June for educators and future educators to brainstorm wildly about all the learning that takes place over the summer months and what creeps into understanding concepts throughout the year.
Brain-based learning is a style of instructional practice that allows for students to have meaningful learning experiences. As we consider brain function, we must also acknowledge that, for learning to take place, it must be structured to support how the brain works. Creating this kind of learning experience includes making connections socially, emotionally, with familiar patterns and concepts, developmentally or to a prior memory.
In other words, we can support brain-based learning by helping students make connections.
