net gen and brain based theory
Net Gen and Brain Based Theory
  • To effect learning neural pathways need to be developed.
  • Passive learning can cause dendritic dieback and stunted neurons.
  • Active engagement develops neurons.

The corpus collussum is better developed in millennials due to multitasking.

  • As a result:
  • Linear thought process is much less common than piecing together information from multiple sources.
  • Highly developed visual spatial skills(maybe from games), able to integrate virtual and physical.
  • Prefer inductive discovery, they learn better by discovery than exposition.
