Neuromyths in Education

FIRST BROADCAST : October 12, 2017 8:00 pm

Ever heard of left brain and right brain differentiation? or learning styles? Perhaps you give your child fish oil to make them smarter! but truth be told a lot of these 'facts' about the brain and the way it works are totally rubbish and lacking any sort of credible evidence. That is why the Parents Show this week is debunking myths and separating out fact from fiction! Helping us do that are top education researchers and developmental psychologists: Pedro de Bruckere and Dr Victoria Knowland from the Centre of Educational Neuroscience. Tune in Thursday at 8!
