The Neuroscience Factor in language learning

IATEFL Webinar presented by Roxana Arean

The session will be about neuroscience and education or neuroeducation; a relatively new field that emerged in the 90’s. Knowledge is not real knowledge until we actually apply what we “learn”; that is, until we experience it. Knowing the theoretical background to base our decisions on is key to know why we do what we do but actually applying neuroscience principles in education- that is, taking action- will make a real difference in the way we approach our lessons and our students today. Education is a social activity, as long as we work with other people, we all share- no matter where you are in the world- a brain with almost identical functions. Thus, knowing who we are teaching and how our most important organ works is a fundamental part of teaching that should not be overlooked. Reframing, reflecting and questioning the way we teach is key in this 21st century full of rapid changes. The education of the future is here and we, as educators, must be the actors and the ones who make it possible.
