Neuroscience and game-based learning


The Museum of Saving, in collaboration with Intesa Sanpaolo Innovation Center – with its Neuroscience Lab – and IMT School for Advanced Studies Lucca, promotes a workshop aimed at teachers, school managers, educators and all those who are involved in educational activities or are interested in learning more about how learning processes work. 

Thanks to the contribution of Neuroscience experts we will explore how the human brain learns and how to train it to improve its cognitive performance, mainly by leveraging game-playing and teamwork skills. 

The results of an experimental study carried out with lower secondary school students will be illustrated, showing how gaming plays an essential role also in transmitting the basic concepts of financial education.
