Hi there!

This time, let’s focus on the process of learning. What kind of sorcery is that? How does it work?
When neuroscientists talk about learning, they are referring to the brain’s ability to change in response to the environment. Our brain is constantly changing and therefore constantly learning, no matter the age of the brain. Isn’t it fascinating?
1. How We Learn
Starting from the basics, watch this presentation explaining our brain. It is from the teacher perspective, but sure gives us an introduction to the subject!

2. Brain Research and Learning over the Life Cycle
A full chapter by Manfred Spitzer, arguments that brain research not only shows that we are born for learning and do it for our entire life but also shows the conditions for successful learning and differences in learning at different stages of life.

3. Older People Can Learn Just Like Younger People, But They Use a Different Area of the Brain
Can old dogs learn new tricks? Read this short article for some clearance on that subject!

4. How to Become a More Effective Learner
A full list of tips from psychology to improve learning effectiveness and efficiency. Who would say that multitasking is not a good thing after all?

5. Forgetting to learn: Neural mechanisms in mouse brains indicate that we actively forget as we learn
They say that once you’ve learned to ride a bicycle, you never forget how to do it. But new research suggests that while learning, the brain is actively trying to forget. This article from ScienceDaily explains it.

6. How to remember everything you learn
This video from Tech Insider illustrates why we tend to forget somethings we’ve learned and how to remember them.

7. The love of lifelong learning
Learning doesn’t end when you throw your graduation cap in the air. This playlist from TEDtalks celebrates education beyond the classroom.
