Reflection: Student Ownership Brain Interactive - Section 3: Wrap-up


As students attempt to diagnose potential brain injuries and the potential impacts of that, they come to realize that this is not so cut and dry.  Because so many of the brain regions have overlapping tasks, it is hard to determine not only what might be impaired, but also if that impairment would lead to death.  This provides a great opportunity for discussion and/or debate as students use their notes to develop arguments.  This shows students the importance of taking good notes and develops critical thinking skills.
