Examine the impact that chronic stress can have on the areas of the brain that control how we learn and process emotions, and discover some techniques teachers can use to create a safe and nurturing classroom environment, in this video from NOVA: School of the Future. Neuroplasticity, the brain’s ability to respond to changes in the environment, can help or hinder the balance and structure of the limbic system, which shapes a person’s emotional life and learning brain. To offset events in a child’s life that can trigger stress and derail classroom learning, teachers can turn to tools to create a positive classroom environment. This resource is part of the NOVA: School of the Future Collection.
