Born to learn

Born to Learn is the first animation in a fascinating series aimed to provide easy-access to the exciting new discoveries constantly being made about how humans learn! Narrated by Damian Lewis.

Self-study activity:
The video is really fast-paced and content-rich, so I just thought I would give you a very general task which would not distract you from concentrating on the video.

Here you have eight topics that are mentioned in the clip. Number them in the order they come up.

a) Reward or punishement.
b) Adolescence, an opportunity.
c) The importance of play.
d) Albert Einstein walking out of school.
e) Breaking away from parents.
f) From childhood to teenage.
g) The brain, a computer programme.
h) Giving full responsibility to adolescents.
