The Psychology of Learning...

Let me ask you a simple question? What system of our body impacts learning more significantly than any other system? Do you know? Lets go back to biology 101. Is it our Circulatory System? Is it our respiratory system? Perhaps it maybe fun and worthwhile to review a helpful activity. Please remember my name, and I advise you to listen carefully to the voice that follows; that is if you want to...

is vitally important to learning information. Of course this is simple to understand; however, remember of all people I believe parents and teachers should understand this more thoroughly then most (excepting doctors, psychologists and surgeons)...

What makes up this important system of our body? Recalling the excellent interactive you should have just completed the answer should be (simply) recall. Yes our senses are indeed a profound conduit of getting stuff to our wrinkled walnut!

Armed with RTL, I am now entrusted with that previously well-kept secret: instruction should be multi-sensory, relate to students' lives, and include age-appropriate, carefully selected technology and plenty of physical movement - pretty much a guaranteed path to full engagement of students' attention.
