Learning Theories – EDUC6115 – Week2 Application

New Horizons for Learning: This website is extremely comprehensive, very informative and easy to follow. It absolutely earns its position at the top of the Google search list.  It is packed with information about learning and, in particular, the ‘News from the Neurosciences” offers a plethora of articles and research information about the brain and learning, information processing theory, and problem-solving methods during the learning process.

Education World: This site is commercial so it’s intended to sell, and it is geared more toward K-12 education; still, it’s professional and informative and covers more material than just brain based educational strategies. The link here points directly to their brain based educational strategies page which has  a lot of embedded links to very informative articles and research. It’s easy on the pedagogy which is nice.

The American Society of Curriculum Development: This site is extremely professional and covers all areas of curriculum development, not just brain based learning strategies. The link here takes you directly to the ASCD section on Brain Based Learning which in itself is quite extensive; however much of the material is either for purchase or for subscription. I found this to be the case with most of the journals and websites I researched, either they were commercial (.com) and when not, they were by membership or subscription. Still, this is a rich site and worth joining.
