8:48 PM Tracy_Parish RT @lrnchat: Q2) In your opinion, what does it mean to have an “active” brain? What does it mean to exercise your gray matter? #lrnchat
8:48 PM kristenking @jshamsy None. That’s the problem. We have a kind of unique organization in that we train outside folks for government contracts. #lrnchat
8:48 PM annasabramowicz A0) I also like to have an excuse to eat food to keep my brain stimulated: Walnuts are a “brain food” #lrnchat does that count?
8:49 PM JD_Dillon A1) Yes! Maybe? Often. 😜 #lrnchat
8:49 PM Quinnovator meta-learning, or learning 2 learn, is way to keep brain active. And learning how to keep brain healthy is 1 part of meta-learning #lrnchat

8:49 PM margiemeacham @lrnchat #lrnchat Q2 An active brain is just like a muscle – it needs to be challenged and worked on a regular basis – and then recover
8:49 PM kregerck You are constantly learning, thinking, reflecting. #lrnchat https://t.co/JSAk8bl78I
8:49 PM JD_Dillon A2) Teaching new tricks to old dogs #lrnchat https://t.co/meK5y0aw5W
8:49 PM lodtrain Q2) Active brain means you are always curious always learning, playing games, listening or playing music, thinking #lrnchat
8:49 PM DrJessupS A2) Exercise your brain by learning a language or solving difficult problems. #lrnchat

8:50 PM Quinnovator a1) an active brain is continually learning. Use @hjarche’s PKM model: seek-sense-share. Seek new, make sense, share out #lrnchat
8:50 PM ryantracey A2) Think for yourself. Break free of the echo chamber. #lrnchat
8:50 PM Tracy_Parish A2) An active brain, for me, is one that is problem solving or researching something. #lrnchat
8:50 PM Quinnovator RT @ryantracey: A2) Think for yourself. Break free of the echo chamber. #lrnchat
8:50 PM lodtrain RT @DrJessupS: A2) Exercise your brain by learning a language or solving difficult problems. #lrnchat

8:50 PM jshamsy A2) Active for me is constantly pushing yourself-being in constant gather mode all of the time-keep the wheels turning #lrnchat
8:51 PM readytoblend Q2) I think part of having an active brain is making sure it’s “active” in the right ways – not obsessing or worrying, for example #lrnchat
8:51 PM pbouffleur A2) we are starting to homeschool our kids, going back 2 basics is a great way 2 keep an active brain! #lrnchat https://t.co/KKTlYfZkJc
8:51 PM CynnamonStelly A2) Active brain – keeping acquired brain skills alive. Exercise gray matter – doing things you may not be so great at doing. #lrnchat
8:51 PM The_NthDegree A2 Moving blood and a few of those firing synapsis things… everything else is probably subjective… #lrnchat
8:51 PM Quinnovator actually, changing things up is a great way to keep the brain healthy: challenge is good! #lrnchat https://t.co/Wo2n2cYSNl
8:51 PM Tracy_Parish A2) An active brain is one that is exploring its environment rather than simple existing within it. #lrnchat

8:51 PM annasabramowicz A2) Stimulated means I have to work to solve & draw conclusions, I feel smart for figuring something out – and get better at it #lrnchat
8:51 PM JD_Dillon A2) Seek out opportunities to learn and improve – refuse the status quo #lrnchat
8:51 PM JustStormy a1) #lrnchat – an active brain notices that we skipped question 1 to go straight to question 2….
8:51 PM margiemeacham @avanbarn #lrnchat I actually started using my left hand for the mouse and it’s been interesting.
8:51 PM CandiceCPLP Just being a consultant exercises my brain, too! #lrnchat
8:51 PM MRoberthon A2) Exercising the gray means being open about what you don’t know and finding the answers. Could also mean enhancing your skills #lrnchat
8:51 PM smarterteacher @jshamsy @MRoberthon LEARNING, Life’s most important skill. #lrnchat https://t.co/vIy99qCP0j
8:51 PM urbie #lrnchat A2 Cognitive dissonance, I was definitely feeling it. It gets down to how our designs differ and why.
8:52 PM jshamsy @SimonBlairTrain Great advice – so easy to take the shortcut! #lrnchat
8:52 PM Quinnovator a2) remember a piece of advice: try to do things in different ways e.g. find way to bed *without* the light #lrnchat
8:52 PM readytoblend A2) practicing self-knowledge is also a big part of it #lrnchat
8:52 PM The_NthDegree A2 Perhaps we could answer how it is possible to have an inactive brain – assuming the blood and synapsis things are firing 🙂 #lrnchat
8:52 PM kristenking Excellent advice! Struggling a bit. have a couple of different sets of needs & want a single LMS. #lrnchat #unicorn https://t.co/FGPLEcF9tA
8:52 PM JustStormy a2) making connections, using logic, thinking, most especially, steam coming out of your ears #lrnchat
8:52 PM Quinnovator a2) seek out new life and new civilizations #lrnchat

8:52 PM avanbarn @Quinnovator +Get feedback, revise, share out again! #Jaycross #lrnchat https://t.co/1qlIap9gmC
8:52 PM MRoberthon A2) Exercising the gray could also mean things we are unsure of or want to know more about. Being a researcher and explorer. #lrnchat
8:52 PM kregerck RT @Tracy_Parish: A2) An active brain is one that is exploring its environment rather than simple existing within it. #lrnchat
8:52 PM margiemeacham @JustStormy #lrnchat – that was test, right? LOL
8:52 PM jshamsy @avanbarn This is great! Sometimes it hurts..but if you can get yourself from a difficult A to B mentally it is rewarding! #lrnchat
