The Impact of Stress on Learning

Scroll Down

Stress affects all of us. Today's research suggests that stress can block chemical reactions in the brain that are necessary for learning. Stress can disrupt learning and memory development ( long-term potentiation (LTP)) as it forces the brain to revert to more primitive survival needs. To foster creativity and learning, educators should learn how to minimize stressful situations. The challenge is to introduce new ways or instructional strategies to reduce levels of the stress hormone (cortisol) and increase levels of the `happy' hormone (DHEA).

We have much to learn about the impact of stress on learning and memory. This site provides educators with information, techniques, and resources for learning about stress and stress management as it relates to learning, As practitioners, the more we know about stress the more we can be proactive--not reactive to supporting learning challenges.
