This is the new m*th!
It’s good that education is talking about evidence and preventing myths to take hold. However, in the advent of this mythbusting naive adoption of counter-research is creating new myths. Use a maths formula, stick a ‘neuroscientific’ image on it or suggest it is all about cognitive science and you are ready to go! This talk will give examples how naive interpretations of educational (e.g. with PISA), econometric, neuroscientific and psychological (e.g. ‘less load is better’) research are creating new myths.
