Brainiac book club week 9 - Mariale Hardiman


This week on the Brainiac book club we're all about trying to teach ourselves better ways to, well, teach! 

Dr. Mariale Hardiman, a professor at John Hopkins University School of Education studies not only how the brain learns, but how we can target teaching to work best within natural brain systems. 

With the rise of the neuro-fields, neuroeducation has a lot to offer alongside other micro field focuses like neurolaw, neuromarketing, neuroeconomics and more. In her book The Brain Targeted Teaching Model for 21st Century Schools Hardiman explains the importance of increasing teacher efficacy through brain-targeted classroom life. Looking at how the brain learns best, Hardiman's work is shaping young students' minds for the better on a daily basis.
