Neuroscience and Technology Transform the Educational Ecosystem


Franco F. Orsucci and Nicoletta Sala

Series: Neuroscience Research Progress
BISAC: MED057000

Scientists, educationalists and policymakers are increasingly recognizing the relevance of neuroscience to education and its potential impact on pedagogy. Our thoughts, perceptions and actions continuously change the strength of connections between neurons in the brain. These physical connections represent our understanding and knowledge of the world around us, our brain plasticity. Education plays a crucial role in changing brains. Teachers are the professionals changing brain connectivity in young people daily! At the same time, significant neuroscience insights reveal the impact of environmental factors of all human technology interfaces on the brain. This book includes thirteen chapters that provide an overview of how the brain works to generate the mind and how technology can be leveraged to enhance education and learning.
