12 Principles of Brain Based Learning

Two sentences have been taken from each of the principles, the first sentence and another key sentence from the description of the principle. Your task is to figure which sentences go together. The purpose of this task is to give you a reason to read the principles more carefully and also, give you a chance to see another possible way to use the Internet for instruction.

The brain is a complex dynamical system.Education MUST come to terms with the multifaceted nature of the human learner.
The mind/brain is social.Learning is profoundly influenced by the nature of the relationships within which people find themselves.
The search for meaning is innate.The search for meaning ranges from the need to eat and find safety, through the development of relationships.
The search for meaning occurs through patterning.Really effective education must give learners an opportunity to formulate their own patterns of understanding.
Emotions are critical to patterning. Emotions color meaning.The emotional impact of any lesson or life experience may continue to reverberate long after the specific event that triggers it.
Every brain simultaneously perceives and creates parts and wholes.Natural "global" projects and ideas should be introduced from the very beginning of a lesson.
Learning involves both focused attention and peripheral perception.Educators can and should pay extensive attention to all facets of the educational environment.
Learning always involves conscious and unconscious processes.Teaching largely becomes a matter of helping learners make visible what is invisible.
We have at least two ways of organizing memory -taxon and locale memories.Meaningful and meaningless information are organized and stored differently.
Learning is developmental.Neurons continue to be capable of making new connections throughout life.
Complex learning is enhanced by challenge and inhibited by threat.The brain/mind downshifts under perceived threat.
Every brain is uniquely organized.It is important both to appreciate that learners are different and need choice, while ensuring that they are exposed to diverse inputs.
