All successful education capitalizes in some way on aspects of how the brain/mind learn naturally.
Renate and Geoffrey Caine pioneered the application of brain research to education with their brain/mind principles of natural learning.
This site is a resource for those interested in the Caines’ work.
Some practical implications:
A deep understanding of different types of learning outcome;
The Guided Experience Approach to teaching;
A sophisticated way to look at education for the 21st Century;
A way to develop effective learning communities based on how the brain/mind learns.
Since 1990 the principles have been cited countless times and have been used on every continent at every level of education and in the worlds of business and training and development. The Caines have developed their work in 9 books with five publishers as well as in numerous articles and chapters. They continue to be at the forefront of synthesizing research on learning and making it practical.
Geoffrey facilitates conversations about the fundamentals of learning, teaching and education for groups from all walks of life.
Professional development for educators and programs for parents are provided by Renate Caine and her colleagues at The Natural Learning Research Institute.
