One more … this is a subject near and dear to me, as my mother had a stroke when I was 5 years old, and ever since then, the brain has utterly fascinated me. Why does it work? Why does it not work? I think I really should have been a neuroscientist, but I have a bit too much invested in other subjects now. Maybe in my retirement.
Anyways, the book is called Welcome ot Your Brain: Why You Lose Your Car Keys but Never Forget How to Drive and Other Puzzles of Everyday Life, by Sandra Aamodt and Sam Wang.
In particular, I think we should look at what this book tells us about learning in a classroom, online, and with technology. If you’d like to join this learning community and discussion, enroll yourself at http://moodle.teachingcollegemath.com/ using the enrollment key “losekeys” (lowercase, no quotes).
Same disclaimer as the other groups … being a site administrator is not my job … please forgive moodle technical glitches gracefully.
