I am in a educational psychology class where the teacher is really pushing “Brain Compatible Learning.” After the first class (3 hours long) I don’t have a clue what it is except that it involved us coloring and having lollipops. I tried googleing it but most of the sites were either practitioner sites full of jargon or syllabi from other schools’ professors. After seeing a math class lesson plan based on BCL I can’t say I’m impressed. Do you know what all this is about and could you address it on your blog?
I’ve never heard of “brain-compatible learning.” I thought learning was brain compatible by definition. Can anyone explain this?
