A great new book about the Brain


12 Principles for Surviving and Thriving at Work, Home, and School

My Summary:

I recently read a fantastic book that I am going to refer back to as I design my future learning engagements. It  was well researched and easy to read. And  it does a great job of highlighting how much the structural elements of the brain are always at play when learning is happening.

The 11 brain rules mentioned can be summarized into the following subsections:

  • Exercise
  • Survival
  • Wiring
  • Attention
  • Memory
  • Sleep
  • Exploration
  • Gender
  • Sense
  • Stress
  • Vision

If you are involved in learning or education then this book really is a must read!
