Best picks for Brain-based teaching and learning:  

Brain-based education - The following links revolve around one of the newer concepts in education, brain-based education. Represented as well are general resources offering related insights into what neuroscience says about teaching and learning and the brain, and educational techniques that are actually keyed to help the brain learn and remember.

If you try to reach a site that has been hyperlinked and get an error message or a "page not found message," try again later. If the site still fails to appear after repeated tries, please contact me and let me know via my e-mail link so that I can remove it from my list. I know how terribly frustrating it is to click on a hyperlink and get a "page not found" message. Also, if you find an interesting or informative site related to my topic headings -- one not already part of my lists, please let me know the address so I can add it.  Thanks!

Have fun browsing and many blessings!  Leslie
