Neuroscience, Schools and the Future

Description

How the latest neuroscience research affects schools is examined in this video for primary and secondary teachers, asking four scientists how the common school-day structure may change due to research now and in the future.

Dr Terry Whatson suggests breaking lessons down into five separate mini-lessons, a proposal already being trialled at Monkseaton High School, Newcastle. Meanwhile, Dr Bogdan Draganski focuses on learning by using jugglers to understand just what effect a teacher can have on a child as they learn.

Finally, looking at science in the classroom, Dr Jonathan Sharples shows how science can be applied in surprising ways, before Dr Paul Howard-Jones looks at humans' evolutionary roots, to explore a whole new style of teaching.
