“Brain-based education” is K-12’s latest fad. Dan Willingham, a professor of psychology at the University of Virginia, has put together a 10 minute video about what we know - and what we need to know - about brain-based education. If you know nothing about cognitive psychology (like me) but want to size up this trend, this video is a helpful introduction. Kudos to Dan Willingham for putting this resource together.
