BRAINLANDING

aims to underline the cognitive strategies to learn in a creative way,

 filtering stimuli and method of rote-learning, that influence the brain plasticity.

PROJECT “BRAINLANDING”: OBJECTIVES”

BRAINLANDING is a Project of a Primary school

in Grumo Nevano (Neaples). It works for improving creativeness in the primary school system,

favouring interest in living sciences and trying

to retain a spirit of discovery. It aims to open the pupil’s minds to a divergent

thinking beyond the limited mechanical principles of science

understanding and the habitual persectives

of traditional science instruction on problem solving.

Pupils learn how to use at the best their convergent skills (Left Brain)

and also about the “Mirror Neurons” interactivity,

in order to put such

brain abilities into concrete solutions.

Creativeness is indeed focused on

understanding: before the “problem solving”

you have to recognize the “problem posing” so that

the utilization of all brain functions can help

the growth of the pupils’ intelligence, and also the adults’ one

since they learn about the Life Sciences, including Neurology advanced knowledge, through a childlike curiosity.

COGNITIVE

RELEVANCE

of the

“BRAINLANDING”

Project

Free will can be an illusion, because human freedom need a very high level of  consciousness. If a man/woman

  will  have more freedom in his/her mind, he/she will be responsible for proper actions.

The real freedom of the proper thought can be easily achieved through the knowledge of the brain functioning. At this point it will be useful to remember that the scientist Gordon Shaw  (http://www.mindinstitute.net/MIND3/research/research.php )

from the fNMR Brain Imagin techniques demonstrated that the Left Brain Hemisphere (LBS) is more functional to rhythm’s time analysis, while the Right Brain Hemisphere (RBS)  is more perceptive to the harmonic space integration.On the light of such brain discoveries it is possible to see how the school traditional teaching process places an overwhelming

slide5

emphasis  on the convergent analytical brain functioning

through a method of problem solving, while

the brain creativeness needs to see at the same time how to overcome

the problems and how to solve them.

Therefore pupils need to exercise with a proper balance both the brain functioning, i.e. of the Convergent (LBH)

and Divergent (RBH) functional  types.

The traditional school attention

at the problem solving can indeed generate an inhibition

of the complemented functioning of the brain right hemisphere.

Today the continuous society changes need a better understanding

of brain’s complemented functioning, so that unconventional

teaching methods need to be open to a conscious knowledge

of brain potentiality. That’s the essence of BRAINLANDING, a

project realized in an integrated e-learning cooperation between

the LRE/EGOCREANET of the University of Florence and the Primary School of Grumo Nevano (Neaples) in Italy.  

slide6

COME IN, BRAIN!

The BRAIN really works  

through

LEARNING.

The entire process cannot be shown,

but the routes are well structured 

to make the claim to memories easier,

and if they are repetitive they cause a conditioning

in everyone’s mind.

The cultural identity of a person

is a generator

of comparisons and sharing.

Welcome to the

CREATIVE

SYSTEM WORKSHOP

OF ATTENTION

Follow the BIG BRAINS’ MAP

slide10

The little tourists are visiting the centre

Of Neuro-biotic ATTENTION

In the house of BIG BRAIN lives the ATTENTION, that causes a great curiosity.

Children … follow then

the right track and above all try to understand straightaway!

slide11

It’s the Brain to manipulate everything… even the attention process.It works indeed on its system of REACTION-ACTION Let’s find out how…

It’s really necessary to know

this world in detail !

slide12

Management of the Big Brain

Information start the ATTENTION but they are immediately caught by the brain. Let’s see how…

In the house of ATTENTION

slide13

On a trip to…Down-Top

Information data go on a path called Down-Top.

The Basal Ganglia, made of grey matter, deal with physical information . They convey everything to the ATTENTION through a bundle of nerves .

slide14

From the outside…

The ATTENTION has got its supplemented centre in the area where the eyes meet with the nose.

From the inside of the skull…

The ATTENTION is between the upper cerebral hemispheres, where reasoning and emotions work.

slide15

From the world of INFORMATION

  • Data, after reaching the centre of the ATTENTION, are under the sensory and emotional control of the THALAMUS.
  • Now there are two tracks :
  • The track to INFORMATION going towards the upper cerebral hemispheres
  • The track to ATTENTION that restrains itself .
slide16

In this case, the stalked pontine core of the Tegmanto, put as a roof on the basal Ganglia, turns off the stimulus and there is the all clear signal.

When information does not need any more reflection there is no creativeness.

slide17

If the circuit of ATTENTION is used in an inappropriate way you get a short circuit: all our thinking system is blocked

REASONING runs out

In the area of the upper cerebral hemispheres creativeness does not develop

slide18

At school

  • if the attention is blocked and restrained,
  • if you get on only with rote-learning
  • the reflection system collapses

Habit phenomenon

the school has to support creativeness

In a class working with an open circuit of the ATTENTION SYSTEM, REASONING will not crash, on the contrary, Big Brain will be empowered.

There is so a change in our reality …it’s the EUROPEAN SOCIETY of ECONOMY of the KNOWDLEDGE

slide19

The trip is over and the INFORMATION you received are sweet SOUVENIRS from the ATTENTION WORKSHOP

GOODBYE!!! We are the Band of

BIG BRAINS

The Big Brains track

For Primary School Classes 1^2^3^ Circolo didattico Pascoli Grumo Nevano (NA)

Ins..PINA FICO

School is a very special place …if

It goes round the world of

BRAINLANDING

We live happily

In a tiny school

Come with us to discover its marvels!

slide22

Here it is a loving PROJECTfrom a school aiming to be perfect

Among classrooms, yards and flowerbeds

there is a great laboratory:

It is the control room,

It is the big brains room…

On tiptoes we get in,

On tiptoes we sit down.

This is the world we are loking for,

it’s the kingdom of the little computers,

The dream of every children.

slide23

EHI YOU do you want to become

a BIG BRAIN?!?

FOLLOW THE NEW TRACK…

?

BRAIN is mysterious

but… it can organize your life

Because it adapts itself to the world changes

You are different from a long time ago child and do you know why??????

Prof. Manzelli from the University of Florence says that the brain structure has changed , it’s always running behind its own time .

When it cannot answer to all your questions

It makes you look for the MECHANICAL LITTLE BRAIN.

slide24

The history of

MECHANICAL LITTLE BRAIN

Once upon a time, in a special kingdom called <<NEW TECHNOLOGIES>>, there was a pile of irons.

In the laboratory there were many operators, technicians, scientists…

One looked, one thought, another one touched

One spoke, one wrote, another one formulated…

They put all the pieces together

Assembled everything perfectly until a click of joy!!!!!! shook all the experts

It was born! LITTLE BRAIN was born

In the nursery of the baby-computers!

CLIC

CERVELLINO

slide25

This is the history of PERFECT BRAIN and of MECHANICALLITTLE BRAIN

They meet in a particular moment in the multimedia hall.

HELLO!-BRAIN says

CLICK!!!-LITTLE BRAIN answers

Only a second and…here it is!

It is nice to communicate,

So many information to get and give,

spending some time together …

To click, to print, to play…

They never get tired to be together!

LET’S GO TOWARDS

TECHNOLOGICAL FUTURE

slide26

They hold hands,

a tender FRIENDSHIP was born.

One is necessary to the other one.

Nobody can keep them apart .

Days go by, months fly away, the year slides quickly… and the magic box of the

PERFECT BRAIN fills up more and more.

By the end of June it is filled with the letters of the alphabet, whimsical words,

coloured thoughts, numbers full of value, delicious lectures, astonishing images…

yet

Only one has got a HEART…

slide27

In the school of BRAINLANDING

they tell a story to make us realize that life is beautiful!

The brain can cry and sleep ,

It can laugh and be happy, can think and act.

slide28

OUR BRAIN at the beginning is a tiny little thing , it’s empty, it’s not ready yet but. . . as a big box it fills up more and more everyday .Then it begins to explore… until nothing else can stop it.

Its memory is a store-room filling with many wonders. There is a bit of everything!.

You can even find the first memory:

A place, a perfume, a noise,

An image, a flower.

slide29

OUR BRAIN is a very specialengine it has got your eyes to look at, your ears to listen to,

your little nose to smell, your tongue to taste,

Your hands to touch…

But OUR BRAIN

Wants only and always to think!

slide30

OPEN THE MEMORIES’ BOX AND YOU’LL FIND OUT…

oh wat a wonder! IT’S MY LIFE!

This box is precious!

!

A LONG TIME AGO

  • They are all here!!!
  • FARAWAY MEMORIES
  • RECENT MEMORIES
  • MEMORIES OF LITTLE EVENTS

A SHORT TIME AGO

PARTICULAR MOMENTS

This is the memory that helps the brain to remember.

Magic formulas click… you can live those moments again, you can jump in the TIME…

slide31

In the BIG BRAIN’S house special lights turn on to activate the world of INFORMATION in order to get news

SENSES switch on

The PAST IMAGES can be seen again

EMOTIONS can be lived again, JOYS and FEARS…

CLOSE YOUR EYES so you can see it ALL again!

It looks like a MAGIC… but it’s only the work of a PERFECT MACHINE!

In the world of BRAINLANDING there is a workshop of PHOTOGRAPHILANDIA .

In every moment of the day you can take PICTURES.

slide32

BRAIN is always very hungry : it eats INFORMATIONcoming from the outside world

It’s often full up, it has got a swollen belly, and … at school sometimes

does not win. What a pity !!!

The poor thing is bombarded with so many news and nobody understands it!

TOO MANY INFORMATION= LITTLE KNOWLEDGE

slide33

School must do something! It has to give order to all the news in our minds!

slide34

The child going to school before you had a book, a dictionary, an encyclopedia not always up to date. His brain WENT on his own, with nobody’s help… always touring the world.

Nowadays you are a special pupil: the world gets to you with a click! And …here it is! Uuhhhh …how many information, how many news and what nonsense! Oh! What a confusion! Someone has to do something ,your head can explode.red light goes off on the trackstop! It’s time to go to school!

slide35

School puts everything in its own place.

Teachers say to everyone :

-stop with the bore! Stop with the yawnings!

It’s time to discover the children’s world!

The new QUESTIONS, the new THEORIES , the new CERTAINTIES come from prof. PAOLO MANZELLI, that from his laboratory EGOCREANET started our curiosity and pulled out of our bodily box an extraordinary THINKING BRAIN!

slide36

THE MAIN CHARACTERS OF A NEVER ENDING STORY

How do you do? I’m Mummy Brain

that is

the Intelligence of the Nature

Ci presentiamo siamo i due Cervellini e viviamo nel grembo della mamma...

Manzelli’s thought:

It is well known that man, the speaking being above all others, developed a prominence of the left brain hemisphere.

Nevertheless his two brain HEMISPHERES have to work together,

in order to express also the intuitive capacities of the right hemisphere.

The closed and limited logic is over.

And here it comes Brain-landing.

slide37

In my womb live the twins Blue little Brain

and Pink Little Brain 

looking for a new knowledge.

Here they are my Little Brains! They are the same for genetics but very different indeed and their brain activities are different too.

slide38

Kids learn very quickly,

the young have more creative capacities,

the adults experience, instead, a fall in their capacities.  

On the grounds of science, the potential

of the children’s brain

is definitely superior than that of the adults’, and a superficial factual knowledge learning 

causes a passive taking on and a conditioning of the cognitive development.

slide39

Teachers,

through the learning,

recognize the young intellectual capacities

and set them off, because they know that a conscious learning helps the forming of their character.

All the connections with the world  

have to deepen

to better understand

the meaning of existence and

of becoming a

MAN in the UNIVERSE.

slide40

Our SCHOOL NEWS allow our pupils to manage the outside world in a creative way.

Mass media can greatly condition our minds,

we can loose our critical ability;

the school task is to improve the dialogue,

the comparison and the sharing of interactive knowledge.
