Helpful links for a range of brainfriendly topics

Christine Ward's brainfriendly ideas link happily with those of a number of international writers and speakers. Some of these experts use different terminology.

Originally the term 'accelerated learning' was used in the UK by Colin Rose as he searched out, analysed and wrote about fast effective learning methods. Eric Jensen, in the USA, uses 'brain-compatible teaching and learning' as he filters neuroscience research and develops practical strategies for successful teaching and learning. Rita and Kenneth Dunn researched new methods of teaching and learning to develop 'learning styles' theory and practice. New Zealander Gordon Dryden used 'the learning revolution' as the title of the book he wrote with Jeanette Vos. This book became the world's best seller when it was the first one to be advertised on Chinese TV.

Other writers and speakers have started with one aspect of the broad 'brainfriendly' topic and sometimes expanded into more general considerations: Sandy McGregor (relaxation techniques for rapid learning), Tony Buzan (mind mapping), Paul Dennison (Brain Gym), Barbara Prashnig (Learning Styles).
