Neuroscience in the Classroom
"When you give students opportunities to learn how information and ideas are interrelated, their memories extend beyond isolated, "single-use" rote memory circuits. Their brains build durable, long-term, cross-brain neural networks of conceptual knowledge. They construct understanding and wisdom that is usable far beyond the classroom," (Dr. Judy Willis).
