During a person’s life, long-lasting functional changes in the brain occur when we learn new things or memorise new information. By completing challenges, students explore the functional changes in the brain that occur when learning. This is important for students as it increases their understanding of the learning process, increasing their resilience.
Students develop an understanding of the long-lasting functional changes in the brain that occur when we learn new things or memorise new information.
By the end of this lesson, students will understand that:
- the brain strengthens and grows with use
- learning and practising challenging tasks helps the brain to form new connections and to grow.
