I am fascinated with infusing brain based learning strategies into the classroom.
Why? Because I am looking at ways to improve how students who have different learning styles can stay engaged in a lesson and use different methods to help them acquire the skills to succeed on informal and formal assessments. More importantly, I think it is a wise investment for students to check out different exercises that tickle their brain rather than yet another pair of sneakers or jeans.
Check out Lumosity. Lumosity is a web based training program. It costs approximately $90 per year. The goal is to improve brain health through fun exercises in memory, attention, speed, flexibility, and problem solving.
