Neuroscience and Deep Learning for Early Years

& Neuroscience and The Developing Brain for Early Years

Education is experiencing a paradigm shift from fear-based learning (the classical-behavioural approach) to brain-based deep learning (from right-brain to right-brain), which has significant implications for teaching pedagogy. Learning begins the moment a child is born. Learning that takes place under stress results in performance that is based only on fear whereas deep learning that occurs in thriving and enabling environments empowers children and young people to reach their full potential academically, socially, emotionally and physically.
