An orientation to affective neuroscience as it relates to educators. In this ground-breaking collection, Mary Helen Immordino-Yang—an affective neuroscientist, human development psychologist, and former public school teacher—presents a decade of work with the potential to revolutionize educational theory and practice by deeply enriching our understanding of the complex connection between emotion and learning. With her signature talent for explaining and interpreting neuroscientific findings in practical, teacher-relevant terms, Immordino-Yang offers two simple but profound ideas: first, that emotions are such powerful motivators of learning because they activate brain mechanisms that originally evolved to manage our basic survival; and second, that meaningful thinking and learning are inherently emotional, because we only think deeply about things we care about. Together, these insights suggest that in order to motivate students for academic learning, produce deep understanding, and ensure the transfer of educational experiences into real-world skills and careers, educators must find ways to leverage the emotional aspects of learning. Immordino-Yang has both the gift for captivating readers with her research and the ability to connect this research to everyday learning and teaching. She examines true stories of learning success with relentless curiosity and an illuminating mixture of the scientific and the human. What are feelings, and how does the brain support them? What role do feelings play in the brain's learning process? This book unpacks these crucial questions and many more, including the neurobiological, developmental, and evolutionary origins of creativity, facts and myths about mirror neurons, and how the perspective of social and affective neuroscience can inform the design of learning technologies.

This volume presents a short review study of the potential relationships between cognitive neuroscience and educational science. Conducted by order of the Dutch Programme Council for Educational Research of the Netherlands Organization for Scienti c Research (NWO; cf. the American NSF), the review aims to identify: (1) how educational principles, mechanisms, and theories could be extended or re ned based on ndings from cognitive neuroscience, and (2) which neuroscience prin- ples, mechanisms, or theories may have implications for educational research and could lead to new interdisciplinary research ventures. The contents should be seen as the outcome of the ‘Explorations in Learning and the Brain’ project. In this project, we started with a ‘quick scan’ of the lite- ture that formed the input for an expert workshop that was held in Amsterdam on March 10–11,2008. This expert workshopidenti ed additional relevant themesand issues that helped us to update the ‘quick scan’ into this nal document. In this way the input from the participants of the expert workshop (listed in Appendix A) has greatly in uenced the present text. We are therefore grateful to the participants for their scholarly and enthusiastic contributions. The content of the current volume, however, is the full responsibility of the authors.

Practical "brain-aware" facilitation tailored to the adult brain Facilitating Learning with the Adult Brain in Mind explains how the brain works, and how to help adults learn, develop, and perform more effectively in various settings. Recent neurobiological discoveries have challenged long-held assumptions that logical, rational thought is the preeminent approach to knowing. Rather, feelings and emotions are essential for meaningful learning to occur in the embodied brain. Using stories, metaphors, and engaging illustrations to illuminate technical ideas, Taylor and Marienau synthesize relevant trends in neuroscience, cognitive science, and philosophy of mind. Readers unfamiliar with current brain discoveries will enjoy an informative, easy-to-read book. Neuroscience fans will find additional material designed to supplement their knowledge. Many popular publications on brain and learning focus on school-aged learners or tend more toward anatomical description than practical application. This book provides facilitators of adult learning and development a much-needed resource of tested approaches plus the science behind their effectiveness. Appreciate the fundamental role of experience in adult learning Understand how metaphor and analogy spark curiosity and creativity Alleviate adult anxieties that impede learning Acquire tools and approaches that foster adult learning and development Compared with other books on brain and learning, this volume includes dozens of specific examples of how experienced practitioners facilitate meaningful learning. These "brain-aware" approaches can be adopted and adapted for use in diverse settings. Facilitating Learning with the Adult Brain in Mind should be read by advisors/counselors, instructors, curriculum and instructional developers, professional development designers, corporate trainers and coaches, faculty mentors, and graduate students—in fact, anyone interested in how adult brains learn.

WINNER OF THE 2014 BRAIN PRIZE From the acclaimed author of Reading in the Brain, a breathtaking look at the new science that can track consciousness deep in the brain How does our brain generate a conscious thought? And why does so much of our knowledge remain unconscious? Thanks to clever psychological and brain-imaging experiments, scientists are closer to cracking this mystery than ever before. In this lively book, Stanislas Dehaene describes the pioneering work his lab and the labs of other cognitive neuroscientists worldwide have accomplished in defining, testing, and explaining the brain events behind a conscious state. We can now pin down the neurons that fire when a person reports becoming aware of a piece of information and understand the crucial role unconscious computations play in how we make decisions. The emerging theory enables a test of consciousness in animals, babies, and those with severe brain injuries. A joyous exploration of the mind and its thrilling complexities, Consciousness and the Brain will excite anyone interested in cutting-edge science and technology and the vast philosophical, personal, and ethical implications of finally quantifying consciousness.

Children will learn 3 secret strategies and play 3 interactive games in this Brain-Based Emotional Intelligence (EQ) Curriculum is for kids 8-12 years old*. This is a hands-on curriculum with a parent and teacher guide. Children will learn concrete strategies to help them with identifying and regulating their emotions. They will learn how to manage their anxieties, worries, and limiting beliefs. In addition, they learn the importance of having a positive mindset, through positive affirmations and talking back to their worries. They will also develop a growth mindset, by learning about famous failed successes and learning how to set and achieve their life goals! This program has been piloted with different groups of students through city programs and at an elementary school. Parents and teachers have noticed a significant improvement with children being able to identify and regulate their emotions. This program will empower your children to learn more about their brain, and why their minds and bodies react in particular ways during times of conflict or stress. It will also provide them with concrete strategies that they can use to help regulate their emotions.This pack includes: -Understanding the Brain: Prefrontal Cortex, Amygdala, and Hippocampus-Understanding an Amygdala Hijack! -Mind/Body Connection during an Amygdala Hijack!-Differences between real and perceived threats-Understanding fight-or-flight responses in their lives-Understanding how Anger is a secondary emotion (and how to figure out their primary emotion)-Feelings chart (with over 200 feeling words, many that kids don't know!)-Emotions chart to sort feelings (Positive, Negative, In-between, and Emotions I don't Know)-Weekly Logs (to journal feelings and train their prefrontal cortex to step in before an Amygdala Hijack!)-Understanding Mind Bubbles (mindfulness related activity)-The Strategy STOP -Conscious vs. Subconscious Mind (Limiting beliefs)-Worry Bullies (addressing anxiety and worries)-The Power of Positive Affirmations & Simple Yoga Poses -Failed Successes (Michael Jordan, Katy Perry, Walt Disney)-The Power of Vision Boards (template to create a vision board)-Amygdala Hijack! Card Game (with real-life scenarios kids have encountered)-Heads Up! Emotions Game (reinforcing all the emotion words they learned)-Social Edge! Taboo Game (reinforcing all key concepts learned).Having good social and emotional skills will help children be successful in their personal and professional lives. Research shows thats employers hire for EQ and train for IQ. Depression is the fastest growing disease, currently effecting 300M people (WHO). Late childhood (just before the transitional period of puberty) and upper elementary school is a time period when the child's personalities, behaviors, and competencies come together to shape who they will become in adolescence and as adults (Collins, 1984). Providing enrichment activities that support healthy forms of self-regulation and reflection and prosocial dispositions could ameliorate or even prevent some of the mental health and school-linked problems that often arise as they transition to puberty (Best & Miller, 2010; M.C. Davidson; Anderson & Diamond, 2006).*This curriculum was developed by Dr. Amita Roy Shah based on her education and expertise. She has an Ed.D. in Curriculum and Teaching from Teachers College, Columbia University. She was a former teacher for Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD). She is currently a Professor in the Child and Adolescent Development at San Jose State University.
