Early Childhood and Neuroscience – Links to Development and Learning

This volume dispels neuro-myths and gives insight into how to use neuroscience to understand and utilize the information gleaned to educate young children. Each chapter discusses a different topic that is intertwined with neuroscience and how it impacts young children. Teachers understand and apply various theories such as Vygotsky’s social learning theory or Piaget’s cognitive development theory that we learned in our methods’ courses in higher education. But when, where, and how do teachers and caregivers learn about brain development and the importance of the windows of opportunity within the brain to teach our students to the best of their abilities? This volume is a wonderful addition for this knowledge and how to reach your potential as an educator by inspiring and teaching your students how to reach their own potential to achieve success.
