Society, local communities and school districts want to see test scores improve to a higher level. To everyone's surprise, we all do, teachers, administrators and of course the students. However, everyone cannot get the scores to rise without qualified educators, administrators and innovative strategies. Scholars are continuously seeking that magical answer to make students improve their intellect. So how do we uncover the magical answer to boost test scores. As educators, we must utilize sensible data to substantiate an imaginative proposal. Educationalists enjoy various successful teaching strategies to increase student's intellect abilities. Teachers depend on thorough instructive credentials, experiences and insight to establish an encouraging learning environment. An environment that the physical and emotional threat is minimal and the learning challenges are considerable.
I truly believe that to develop a revolutionary intelligence strategy, one must establish an environment that encourages learning. Secondly, once the optimum learning environment is established, knowing how the child's brain learns. Studying the brain's basic functions must be taking into account, to include a variety of methods to maximize the learner's potential. Therefore the goal of this study is to nurture the body and mind through physical activities along with background music, can motivate and educate the student simultaneously. By reviewing this study, you will be familiar with neural connections and how the brain transforms sound into electrical messages. You will also understand how specific neurotransmitters (chemical stimulus) are cultivated through physical exercise together with setting a musical environmental that stimulates "The Mozart Effect" can improve learning. Together with physical activities and music, educators can develop strategies that can extend instructional strategies by deciphering new learning paradigms with the mind and the human body.
In support of this idea, Leslie Hart, feels that teaching without an awareness of how the brain learns is like designing a glove with no sense of what a hand looks like, its shape and how it moves. Even if you are limited to understanding how the brain functions, reading this study you will be to develop and design instructional settings that focuses on the brain. Brain base compatible strategies with a positive learning environment are the fundamentals to boost learning. Ron Brandt former executive editor of Education Leadership stated that brain science could be translated into strategies for effective teaching.
Brandt believes the thriving research of neuroscience can present educators with an awareness of new teaching strategies and attitudes that mesh with the mechanism of the biological brain. Understanding basic brain functions and strategies from various researches, the reader can discover useful ideas and activities that bring education to a superior level.
Reante Nummela Caine and Geoffrey Caine synthesized research related to the brain and learning and developed a list of twelve brain/mind learning principles. These principles can function as a theoretical foundation for brain-based learning and offer guidelines and a framework for teaching and learning. Caine and Caine identified three interactive and mutually supportive elements that should be present in order of complex learning to occur. Relaxed alertness is one. This consists of an environment of low threat and high challenge. Orchestrated immersion implies that the teacher becomes the conductor or the architect designing experience that will lead students to make meaningful connections. And finally, active processing of the experiences, which is the basis for making a meaningful, learning event. Reante Caine commented that emotions drives these three elements. By providing meaningfulness to the subject at hand, the student starts learning.
To harmonize an encouraging learning environment along with stimulating learning, research has found a relationship that joins these two with ease, music. Yes, music is a common bond between the two. Music may excite and strengthen these complex patterns in some way and prime the brain for the performance of other higher brain functions". Other benefits, of a more general sense, include the enhancement of self-confidence, growth in physical co-ordination and poise, increase in the ability to concentrate. Alfred Tomatis, a French physician who devoted his career to the physiological effects of sound. Tomatis wrote, "Mozart has a liberating, curative, even heal power. With him, we become what we are." Campbell has stated that playing recording music your child enjoys can create positive physiological effects, including decreased heart rate, less rapid breathing, and lower levels of the stress hormone, cortisol. Music can also distract your child from his/her stressful environment and create a private room of sound that can enclose healing warmth. By aligning physically and emotionally with serene rhythms of Mozart of other classical music, your child may also be able to speed up recovery.
