Neuromyths In Education Education, FamilyThe Parents’ Show

Ever heard of left brain/right brain differentiation or learning styles? Or feel that sometimes you only use 10% of your brain? Truth is: these are myths that are baseless when it comes to the evidence. On this episode, we are joined by two of the most influential researchers in this field, Pedro de Bruyckere who has written a book on the topic and developmental psychologist, Victoria Knowland who has also written extensively about neuromyths. We are also joined by David Weston, Chief Executive of the Teacher Development Trust who will help us understand why these myths are still being perpetuated by some schools and teachers.
