How your Brain Learns and Remembers

Nov 4, 2007 by

This is a wonderful presentation designed by Diana Hestwood and Linda Russell (of Minneapolis Community & Technical College). After last year’s presentation about “the emerging adult brain” I asked Diana if there was an existing presentation that we could use to explain the brain science to students when we go back to our classrooms. This year, Diana held a workshop to help us implement the teaching of brain science in the classroom, and part of that was this PowerPoint presentation.

Because Diana wants this presentation to be used in classrooms, I am posting three versions of this file:

If you have any questions about the presentation, email Diana Hestwood and I’m sure she will be happy to answer them.

    Hi Maria,

    Thanks so much for posting this. I missed this workshop, but was interested. I used the power point this morning in my self-paced arithmetic class to explain to students why it’s so important to study every day and to make sure that prerequisite material is understood. They loved it and some students who were former military personnel were able to tell how adrenaline can make people do super-human things.
