In this podcast, Dr. Kieran introduces the three sections of his new book, The Brain-Based Classroom: Accessing Every Child’s Potential through Educational Neuroscience. While neuroscientists know important information about how the human brain works and how memory processing occurs, they are woefully bad at explaining methods and practices to translate these data into child learning and teaching. Kieran highlights the factors that are of ultimate concern for parents and teachers when it comes to attention focus application and understanding. As a dad, a learning scientist in cognitive neuroscience he is ideally situated at the confluence of several worlds, the teacher in the classroom, the researcher in the ivory tower, and the parent at home.
