Do you drive the same route to work every day and sometimes forget the whole drive?
What about that time that an animal ran out in front of you and you had to swerve to avoid it? You remember that though, right?
This is an example of how emotion can help you to remember and to learn!
I have selected a video here on emotions impact learning which helps to explain the research on negative emotion on learning and the more recent research on positive emotions and learning. To further develop out this theory, I have included a really interesting video by Elizabeth Cox on the links between stress and memory which I found interesting and food for thought. I hope you do too!
