Video - The Science of Learning

I am working with some high school teachers who work with challenging, at-risk students. We are working on developing active learning and I came across this video on Edutopia.

Neurologist turned teacher, Judy Willis, shares her philosophy on the science of learning in 2-3 minute video segments that discuss boredom, curiosity, focusing attention, the relationship of video games to classroom instruction, and 21st century learning. She keeps it simple in her explanations and classroom suggestions.  She offers practical examples of how you can use brain research to improve your instruction. 

Check out her video and leave a comment and let me know what you think the video.  Do you use videos like this as part of your professional learning? 

Edutopia has a number of video resources for teachers and you can search by topic and grade level.
