The section on ‘classroom evidence’ looked at research done by using a teaching method in a classroom with ordinary students. This section looks at evidence from the cognitive sciences. This includes:
- Cognitive neuroscience – which looks at how the brain learns
- Cognitive psychology -the study of mental processes such as attention, language use, memory, perception, problem solving, creativity, and thinking.
As you will see, these approaches are complementary: the classroom evidence tells you ‘what works’, the cognitive science tells you ‘why it works’.
