Research In Mind Brain And Education

Marc S. Schwartz Routledge

Research in Mind, Brain, and Education cuts across and unites areas of Mind, Brain, and Education (MBE) to introduce foundational and emerging topics in the field. With chapters written by leading scholars, this book offers empirical research on specific topics including autism, math, reading, and emotion, as well as conceptual guidance on the role of models and epistemological considerations relevant to MBE. Each chapter seeks to provide a platform for exploring questions, tools, and models central to current work in MBE by emphasizing investigative focus and influences. Designed both as a supplementary text for advanced undergraduate or early graduate training and as an introduction for educators, researchers, and policy makers, Research in Mind, Brain, and Education showcases the collaborative, innovative, and dynamic approach to research that is fundamental to the discipline.

Crossing Mind Brain And Education Boundaries

Ali Nouri Cambridge Scholars Publishing

Mind, Brain, and Education science is a very young field, though it has roots in thousands of years of academic reflection. This book is a brief but critical look into the key turning points in the field’s evolution and the existing initiatives in order to project its future directions. It draws on information from all major branches of the learning sciences, including philosophy and history, and more modern constructs such as cognitive psychology and neuroscience. First and foremost, it is a textbook for early graduate training programs in Mind, Brain, and Education science and Educational Neuroscience and those who would like to have Learning Sciences as their main area of study, but the book will also serve as an introduction for those educational policymakers who would like to ground decision-making in evidence from the Learning Sciences, and neuroscientists who need to have knowledge about mind and education.

From Brain To Mind

James E. Zull Taylor & Francis

Finalist for Foreword Magazine's 2011 Book of the YearWith his knack for making science intelligible for the layman, and his ability to illuminate scientific concepts through analogy and reference to personal experience, James Zull offers the reader an engrossing and coherent introduction to what neuroscience can tell us about cognitive development through experience, and its implications for education.Stating that educational change is underway and that the time is ripe to recognize that “the primary objective of education is to understand human learning” and that “all other objectives depend on achieving this understanding”, James Zull challenges the reader to focus on this purpose, first for her or himself, and then for those for whose learning they are responsible. The book is addressed to all learners and educators – to the reader as self-educator embarked on the journey of lifelong learning, to the reader as parent, and to readers who are educators in schools or university settings, as well as mentors and trainers in the workplace.In this work, James Zull presents cognitive development as a journey taken by the brain, from an organ of organized cells, blood vessels, and chemicals at birth, through its shaping by experience and environment into potentially to the most powerful and exquisite force in the universe, the human mind.Zull begins his journey with sensory-motor learning, and how that leads to discovery, and discovery to emotion. He then describes how deeper learning develops, how symbolic systems such as language and numbers emerge as tools for thought, how memory builds a knowledge base, and how memory is then used to create ideas and solve problems. Along the way he prompts us to think of new ways to shape educational experiences from early in life through adulthood, informed by the insight that metacognition lies at the root of all learning.At a time when we can expect to change jobs and careers frequently during our lifetime, when technology is changing society at break-neck speed, and we have instant access to almost infinite information and opinion, he argues that self-knowledge, awareness of how and why we think as we do, and the ability to adapt and learn, are critical to our survival as individuals; and that the transformation of education, in the light of all this and what neuroscience can tell us, is a key element in future development of healthy and productive societies.
