Brain development and teaching and learning

There is increased understanding from research into how the brain develops and mention of this is included in chapter one and other points throughout the book but there is a debate still about how exactly this impacts on teaching and learning.  This is perhaps again even more pertinent to early childhood education and care as this is clearly one, if not the, most critical periods.  The Teaching and Learning Research Programme publication accessed at provides the perfect introduction to this debate and a guide to further reading.

New talk from Sir Ken Robinson on

Another amusing but really pertinent talk from Ken Robinson on TED titled 'How to Escape Education's Death Valley can be listened to at
 This relates to chapters in the book in section one on creative approaches where we have referenced to Robinson's books and previous talks and also the 'The Place of the School in the 21st Century'
