Summary
  • Why do video games fascinate kids so much that they will spend hours pursuing a difficult skill? Why don't they apply this kind of intensity to their schoolwork? These questions are answered by the authors who pioneered brain/mind learning with the publication of Making Connections: Teaching and the Human Brain. Caine and Caine build a bridge to the future of education with a dynamic model of teaching that works for all grade levels and all cultural and ethnic groups
  • Book Features:
  • Describes an approach for integrating technology into teaching that will help all students learn with greater depth and ease
  • Synthesizes research from neuroscience, cognitive psychology, biology, and education
  • Contrasts the ways in which video games are designed with the way students are taught in school, demonstrating traditional education's inconsistencies with how the brain learns best. Book jacket
