Great teachers know how to make learning fun. Enjoying learning is the key to information sticking and ensuring it makes sense. Studies have shown that laughter in learning creates an increase in white blood cell activity and produces changes in the balance of the blood. It also increase the brains production of the neurotransmitters necessary for alertness, memory and learning.
Scientists studying brain based learning say that humour stimulates both the left and right sides of the brain. The "right brain" connects the memory to the pleasurable moment of laughter. The "left" brain ties the subject content to a memorable emotional moment.
What this means is that we understand the message better and remember it longer when information is accompanied by humour and fun. Learning and teaching in this way also reduces stress and decreases negative neurotransmitters like cortisol that block learning.
