Key points

Common myths busted

The brain is constantly changing

The brain never goes to sleep

All behaviour changes the brain, all the time, it is constantly reorganising
To support learning you should increase the amount of neurones being used and linked (emotion)
What you see in the short term does not reflect learning
There is no recipe for learning, no 'one size fits all' (10,000 hours is not true) therefore we need to be personalising education
The more you use a part of the brain the easier it is (practice makes perfect)
Nothing is more effective than practice
