Summary

This audiobook shines a light on the best research into learning and the brain development that makes it all possible. Written by two distinguished education journalists, it provides an invaluable guide to the latest information for parents seeking to help their children to make the best use of their potential and steer a true course through an often confused, noisy and crowded learning landscape where ideas compete and nothing can seem clear.

Summarising the most up to date and significant research in a jargon-free and understandable way, this audiobook provides listeners with simple and clear access to knowledge and information about what really helps children learn and flourish. Drawing on expert analysis, interviews and example studies, the chapters tackle common misconceptions and myths and explore crucial topics including:

  • The use of neuroscience in education
  • The role of parents and how all parents can help their children learn
  • What works in the classroom and the best ways of teaching a child

The first of its kind, this seminal text is a unique resource for parents, carers, primary and secondary teachers, student teachers, policymakers and anyone interested in the development of children and how they learn.
