EDU510

I just submitted my final for EDU510. I really do not know how. This paper took me forever to write. It is such a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. I am amazed. Cognitive Science of teaching and learning is some really serious stuff. Mental representations, principles of teaching that transform education and all that good stuff. I enjoyed this class because it was challenging and rewarding. The information I learned here will be carried with me through my program and career.On the other hand, I am glad I survived it and not just bareky but with a great average but it took sacrifice. It will all pay off. After all no pain no gain right? Does your brain ever hurt?1157448_562314487136972_374071914_nIn the past10‐15years,there has been a growing educational interest in the brain that mirrors an increasing conclusion amongst some scientists,
as
well
as
educators,
that
education
can
benefit
from
neuroscientific research
into
how
we
develop
and
learn.
This
research
goes
by
many
names:
“Brain,
Mind,
and
Education”,
“Neuro

Education”,
or
simply
“Mind
and
Education”
(Howard

Jones,
2008).
The
core
theme
is
the
same
no
matter
what
you
call
it:
to
combine
our
understanding
of
educational
practices
with
our
biological
understanding
of
brain
function
and
learning.
It
is
quite
logical
if
you
think
about
it
 ‐
without
our
brains,
we
could
not
learn!
