Pattern Learning and the Brain

Eide Neurolearning

The brain is a pattern-recognition machine, after all, and when focused properly, it can quickly deepen a person’s grasp of a principle, new studies suggest. Expertise at pattern recognition is a very different brain-based process than expertise at rule-based learning or a motor skill.

When we observe them, and reflect, we being to notice patterns. If we provide resources, and support the thinking afterwards, we increase the likelihood of learning outcomes. A critical feature of this statement is that the choices of action that we design, and the choices of resources to support reflection (content and representation tools), are critical. With resources and reflection facilitation, a performance requirement becomes a learning opportunity!
