Understand the science of learning in the brain.

Evidence underpinning this approach

The book is written by two neuroscientists and an education consultant. The material draws on the vast field of neuroscientific research (two of the authors have worked closely with Baroness Susan Greenfield) as well as the authors' own research project in which they pooled their scientific and education expertise and worked alongside practising teachers, sharing ideas about how to translate knowledge about the brain and learning into practical classroom advice.
