Emotions, Learning, and the Brain : Exploring the Educational Implications of Affective Neuroscience
About this item
The author explores the role of emotions in learning and their educational implications. She first discusses how people feel in educational and other learning contexts, and how the brain structures conscious experiences with emotional meaning, with discussion of the relevance of affective and social neuroscience to education, the implications of the brain at rest for human development and education, and the possibilities of affective and social neuroscience for educational theory. The second part addresses implications for learning and teaching, including the network-based, dynamic nature of skill development; pedagogical strategies to support the development of experience-based intuitions; the interdependence of emotion and cognition in poetry writing development; the role of emotion in the learning of two students who had a brain hemisphere removed to control seizures; the role of mirror neurons; the importance of nonconscious emotional processing in social emotion and the linking of the conscious mind to nonconscious biological regulatory systems; and implications for the design of digital learning technologies.
