The Caines’ Brain/Mind Principles of Natural Learning
The 12 brain/mind learning principles were first published in Educational Leadership in 1990, and then expanded in depth in the Caines’ best selling book, Making Connections: Teaching and the Human Brain (1991, 1994).
They provided the foundations for what was called brain based learning and is now better known as natural learning. The principles have been largely confirmed by research over the last two decades. Read some of our publications to see the development and applications of the principles over time.
