The Learning Brain – How your brain learns, for young people.

Hello All,

Please watch this video from the Learning Pod with your child – its a great introduction to what the brain does and the process of learning. It will help parents, teachers and children to be more ‘mindful’ of what’s happening in the brain when trying to learn a new skill or some new information. It encourages us to practice the skill so our brain gets used to the new movements, new environments, new experiences and these can then be ‘logged’, ‘learnt’ and ‘mastered’.  With this new knowledge we an encourage children to be a little more patient with themselves, to allow time and practice for the new knowledge or skill to be embedded in the brain cells and new connections between cells to be formed.

I’ve been using this with year 5 & 6 children and it has helped them to be more self aware as to how they learn and what they need to be like to learn at their best.

Enjoy the video
