Dumonthell and his research partners suggest that this clutter comes from differences in brain development. While this seems to be more about neurology than it is about education strategy, the research has me wondering what teachers can do to help remove the clutter in our students' brains.
In fact, I considered the possibility that we may be the ones cluttering those young thinkers with a lot of unnecessary information.
So, what do you think? Can we de-clutter students' brains and, if so, how?
