Neuroscience and cognitive psychology research are beginning to provide insights into the domains of teaching and learning.
- Where are the intersections?
- How might we translate the findings into relevant, applicable ideas for consideration?
- What learning strategies emerge, with what methods of instruction?
- How can I frame” (design) the learning circumstance or activity so that it INVITES ALL learners to get involved, to participate?
- How can I design the learning experience such that it will CAUSE learners to process, to do the work required for sustained learning and recall to take place?
- How do I engineer tasks that create opportunities for multiple PATHWAYS to be formed (connections made) for integrated learning, application, and recall?
Greenleaf Learning is dedicated to reviewing current research and creating literature with an eye toward purposeful applications to learning. Some cornerstones of focus are in the areas of:
- Instructional Strategies to Engage All Learners
- Safe Learning Environments
- Frameworks to Engage Long-Term Memory and Recall Structures
- Considerations Across the Five Natural Learning Systems: Cognitive, Emotional, Social, Physical, and Reflective ~ a la Given
- The Merging of Best Practices: a la Marzano et al's Nine Most Effective Instructional Strategies for Student Achievement
