Connecting neuroscience and education: Insight from neuroscience findings for better instructional learning

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Educational Neuroscience (EN) also known as Mind and Brain Education is a multifaceted interdisciplinary effort to bridging the gap between neuroscience and educational research. There is growing interest in the contributions of neuroscience to educational practice because applying neuroscientific research to classroom is a new and exciting endeavour to promote better learning. This article will discuss critically the emerging of education and neuroscience field and how its take place in education setting. Besides that, we illustrated the frameworks of educational neuroscience that bridge between two diverse perspectives of learning that related each other. We also reflect challenges and practices among the teachers and researchers in education and how neuroscientific approaches can complement educational practices. This article also will further show that, ideally, research efforts in neuroscience and education should be reciprocal. We suggest that a better understanding of neuroscience may offer significant advantages for educators. In this context, we have considered insight in neuroscience of education research specifically emotions and its links to cognitive processing. Therefore scientist and educators need to collaborate to build a strong research foundation of neuroscience and education that underpin emotions in learning. We believed this article will provide meaningful inputs for teachers and researchers to improve learning instruction and enhance student's performance.
