  • EMOTIONS IN EDUCATION:
    • “Traditional education and scholarship has worked hard to minimize emotions within the Academy, and if Zull is correct, then this is most unfortunate. Our brains are wired for emotions, and teaching and learning suffer when we ignore or minimized emotions both in teachers and students.
    • It is hard to attend to a lesson when the amygdala senses loss of control or painful experiences ahead. We teachers can help a student’s brain focus its attention through pleasure and movement, connection with people, awareness of the relevance of the material to the brain’s identity, a sense of control, and other techniques. People can respond when, first, they are not distracted by threats of failure, pain, and loss of control, and second, when they sense relevance, control, joy, and play in what they are asked to do.” – http://idst-2215.blogspot.sg/2013/01/rewiring-our-feelings.html
