The old model of child development and learning held that the brain’s function was hard wired at an early age, and by the time a child reached school their ability to succeed or fail was already determined. This approach has doomed generations of children to a limited learning experience and an often-deflated sense of self worth. However a revolution in education neuroscience points to a powerful, more fundamental strategy that can improve all children’s brains to maximize their learning potential. THE NEW SCIENCE OF LEARNING outlines how innovative brain plasticity based training approaches rapidly improves the learning abilities of “normal” and “high achieving” kids and how even “low achieving” children can be empowered to succeed in school and therefore in life. Through interviews with top neuroscientists, psychologist, educators, as well as parents and children, THE NEW SCIENCE OF LEARNING reveals the groundbreaking and moving stories of previously unthinkable successes in learning and living.
