The good, the bad and the ugly in neuroscience and education: an educator’s perspective

Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter provides an educational perspective on some of the issues covered in this volume. It argues that from clearing out neuromyths, to identifying research questions and applying the results, the territory between neuroscience and education is best traversed with interdisciplinary dialogue and collaborative work between experts and practitioners in both fields. Neuroeducational dialogue and research is emergent, and it is presently the stuff of pioneers. That makes it exciting but it also means that the territory will be populated by the good, the bad, and the ugly for a few years to come, as we struggle to reach consensus about how to tell these apart.

Keywords: neuroscience; education; interdisciplinary dialogue
