The Neuroscience Behind Stress and Learning | Edutopia
"In the past two decades, neuroimaging and brain-mapping research have
provided objective support to the student-centered educational model.
This brain research demonstrates that superior learning takes place when
classroom experiences are relevant to students' lives, interests, and
experiences. Lessons can be stimulating and challenging without being
intimidating, and the increasing curriculum requirements can be achieved
without stress, anxiety, boredom, and alienation as the pervasive
emotions of the school day."
