The times are a-changin' (at school too): Bob Dylan, Nobel Laureate

Come gather 'round people wherever you roam….for the times they are a-changin'

Do you know the song?

Bob Dylan received a Nobel prize for literature in 2016. It was for the lyrics he wrote, like “The Times They are –a-Changin”.

He was right about that way back in 1964.

And the times are still changing. Especially in education. That’s thanks to educational neuroscience. It’s changing education in ways we could not have imagined.

Educational neuroscience has arisen from the understanding that our brains are “plastic”.  They change because of our experiences.

There was another major prize winner in 2016. You might not have heard about him and his prize.

He is brain scientist Dr Michael Merzenich. He won the Kavli Prize for his work on brain plasticity. It’s the neuroscience equal of the Nobel Prize.
