BA Brain-based learning is formed from the fields of psychoimmunology, neuroscience, education, and many others. It is the idea that learning takes place best when the brain is functioning properly. BA Brain-based learning, thus, emphasizes the constant growth of the brain and the importance of brain/mind/body cohesion. The strategies in BA Brain-based learning are endless: They range from maintaining a healthy diet, as it has been discovered that glucose levels can affect learning, to providing a stress-free and creative environment in which to learn. Brain-based learning encourages self-awareness and metacognition (the awareness of one’s own thinking processes and potential for development) over test-taking and rote memorization.
Brain Activation Sdn Bhd carries out numerous activities derived from the principles of brain-based learning intended to spark the brain development of and improve the bodily coordination of students. These include story times, brainstorming sessions, quiet times for reflection, and physical activities. Brain Activation’s programmes are tailored to each child and, as we often work with children who are academically or developmentally challenged, may also be designed to enhance age-appropriate skills and cognition. In addition, we may also offer dietary recommendations or activities that the child can carry out at home.
