The educator implements MBE research-informed strategies to improve teaching and leading.
This micro-credential forms one part of the research-informed framework for teaching Mind, Brain, Education science to educators and school leaders. It was developed by the Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning. We suggest you complete this stack in the following order: (1) Neuroplasticity: Educators as Brain-changers; (2) Neuromyth Busting; (3) Neuro-truths in the Classroom. It is also important to recognize that this process is iterative.
The Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning defines a “neuro-truth” as a belief in a teaching and/or learning strategy that is currently supported by Mind, Brain, and Education science research.
The following book chapter, articles, and website are foundational to promoting neuro-truths that are backed by MBE science.
The items in the following section detail what must be submitted for evaluation. An educator will need to receive a passing evaluation for Parts 1 and 3, and meet the "Competency Met" level for the artifact in Part 2 to earn the micro-credential.
In answering these questions, make specific reference to the resources you used in your responses.
Identify 3 strategies rooted in a neuro-truth and describe how you have already implemented them in your class or school. Describe your observations of yourself and your students as you were implementing these strategies. Could you tell whether your students were more engaged? What worked? What didn’t work?
Plan one class period, meeting, or conversation that includes the implementation of at least three neuro-truths. Present your executed plan as a lesson plan, timeline, video, info-graphic, discussion, etc.
Meta-cognition, the act of thinking about thinking, is a critical part of the learning process. Use this Visible Thinking Routine from Project Zero to assess how your brain has changed by completing this MBE Neuro-truths in the Classroom micro-credential.
