In my opinion (backed up by some evidence), SO much of what we read under the category of "this is how brain research applies to education" is overgeneralized, inaccurate advice. I worry nervous every time I read an article or see a book about "brain based learning." Medina worries about this too - in fact, during the presentation, he "named names" of authors with popular books who mis-apply brain research in his opinion.
If anyone uses this book in psych, or just wants to chat about it, please holler at me (either via email or in the comments).
