“It’s the brain, stupid!”


It seems a bit crazy to me that people who are responsible for creating educational programs for adults fail to listen and learn from the amazing work being done in the Neuroscientists and others who are discovering how we learn.

They are learning how we send ideas from our short-term to our long-term memories; why ten minutes is the maximum amount of time we can pay attention; when a lesson learned becomes part of one’s life.

… and so much more. I tried to capture some of it here. Hopefully it will shake you out of the Industrial Economy box in which all of the educational theories you hold so dear were created. To be replaced by a real understanding (and the principles, rules, methods and approaches that follow) of the miraculous ability of our brains to learn.
