An excellent summary of the latest thinking on best practice and the debunking of nueromyth. Credit to Love Learning Ideas.
The statistics make sobering reading. Research reported here found that, “on average, teachers believed 49% of… neuromyths, particularly myths related to commercialized educational programs.” A recent survey reported here found that 90% of teachers in several countries agreed that individuals learn better in their preferred learning style despite there being “no convincing evidence.” (Read an excellent article by Daniel Willingham and Tom Bennett in the TES here on learning styles and other myths in education.) ConverselyDunlosky points out here that “some effective techniques are underutilized – many teachers do not learn about them.”
