The Benefits of Bigger Brains' Teacher/Learner Style

It turns out there are several biological and neurological benefits inherent to the classroom that aren’t found in most online training. Bigger Brains’ unique “Teacher / Learner” style includes two people on screen–a Teacher and a Learner–to bring several classroom benefits to on-demand eLearning, including:

  • Facial Engagement: The human brain is uniquely attracted to seeing faces and feels “reward” sensations when viewing a smiling face. Bigger Brains frequently shows the (often smiling) Teacher and Learner on screen, to increase engagement.
  • Classroom Proxy: The on-screen Learner becomes the proxy for the viewer, able to ask questions, respond to questions, and model behavior similar to what would be experienced in a classroom.
  • Instinctive Elaboration: When the human brain hears a question, it triggers an automatic response– we try to think of the answer. This focuses the viewer’s mind on the material, as well as increases the meaningful cognitive effort around the topic, which facilitates knowledge retention.
  • Mirror Neurons: Several areas of the human brain exhibit mirror neuron behavior, in which observing another person do something triggers a response as
    if they are doing it themselves. This is believed to be important for learning new skills.
  • Cooperative Learning: Students learning in a positive group setting exhibit increased persistence, greater intrinsic motivation, and a deeper understanding of learned materials. The on-screen Learner mimics a group learning experience by being the proxy for the viewer.
  • Practical Objectives: Lessons begin with examples of practical ways the skills being taught can be applied.
  • Andragogical Structure: Lessons, Sections, Courses, Knowledge Checks, and Supporting Materials are built around consistently structured objectives and outcomes.
