Brain Rules: 12 Principles for Surviving and Thriving at Work, Home, and School by John Medina looks like a very useful reference for anyone interested in how brains learn.
Medina is a developmental molecular biologist and he has very generously shared some of the principles in an interactive presentation online. Open the link below, watch the video and then scroll down to the 12 rules and explore each one, checking out the graphs and videos as you go. He’s got some challenging criticisms of how schools make learning more difficult but he’s got the science on his side!
PS The book is being released in October.
