ART: A BASIC HUMAN NEED – NEURODIDACTIC ANSWERS TO INCREASING SOCIAL CHALLENGES NEUROSCIENCE ENABLING LEARNING The project “Art: a basic human need; neurodidactic answers to increasing social challenges“ uses neuroscientific research information to improve learning. The project stems from the partners’ concerns regarding the integration of underprivileged society groups, such as families with poor educational background, immigrants, and people with special educational needs or without qualification. As a way to support the learning of these groups, the project promotes arts, such as music pedagogy and drama. The project uses neuroscientific information and neuro-didactic methods and translates the information to easily-understandable format in order to contribute to the learning methods used.

As a project result, the Manual for Brain Users was created to present learning processes in the light of neuroscientifical research. It offers the neuroscientific information about successful learning in an engaging way, such as with film clips and easily-read texts. Other activities included television talk shows on science-based learning methodologies, public performances and tour talks.
