Understanding how we learn has always intrigued educators and psychologists. Pioneers like Dewey, Maslow, and Vygotsky developed some of the first learning theories, but it wasn’t until education joined neuroscience that we’ve made significant advanced in understanding learning.Researchers now understand that education is a science. Learning as much about how the brain learns and stores information is the next logical step in merging the two fields. The result is neuroeducation, which “serves to apply the scientific method to curricula design and teaching strategies.”
