over at EduTopia!
If you’re like me, you’ve likely noticed secondary students focus faster and remember more when they tackle topics with more mental equipment than mere listening skills. Yet when pressures slip in from tests, or standards step up demands, it’s tempting to turn teaching dials to fact delivery, and avoid active learning benefits. That’s where brain hacks help to rewire chemical and electrical circuitry for aha boosts. Teens generate increased activity in frontal domains when they engage a sense of wonder in lesson-related lifts below. How so?
Find all 10 fun Hacks at EduTopia, and use your favorite hack to replace parts of your next talk or lecture.
