Whole Brain Literacy According to Wikipedia

Posted by & filed under Blog.

Whole Brain Literacy (WBL), is an alternative approach to integral learning/ teaching process advocated in the Philippines by Dr. Perla Rizalina M. Tayko and Perla S. Intia. [1] and [2]. “Learning to Read, Reading to Learn”, is the Philippine-published reference book for this concept.

In a recently published book entitled Whole Brain Literacy for Whole Brain Learning by Perla Rizalina M. Tayko, Ph.D. and Marina L. Reyes-Talmo, Ph.D., (2010) the concept and processes of whole brain literacy (WBL) is expanded, differentiated and deepened in its philosophy, perspective, paradigm, processes and application of these to the development of human potential. WBL has many dimensions and definitions. Initially it is defined as an approach or modality of instruction, a technique in asking questions for a dialogic interaction and/or a strategy for curriculum and development. As a perspective, WBL advances the new philosophy of education that draws out the potentials of every learner from the gift of thought and developing it from within or from “inside out” much more than from “outside in” or imposed framework of thinking through processes. The authors, Tayko and Talmo used the term “humanology” to distinguish WBL from other approaches if only to emphasize that the technology being taught to learners are the “human techology” latent in every human being – the whole brain functioning which are based on the four-brain model of Lynch and associates from the book The Strategy of the Dolphin. The four-brain processes as identified and exemplified below and as such WBL taps into these whole brain quadrants through “wending/iterating” as well as “connecting” or weaving as it were on a center core called “core purpose”

Whole Brain Literacy (WBL) can be described as the circulation the human thinking system through four brain quadrants. These four quadraints are I-Control, I-Explore, I-Pursue, and I-Preserve. The circulation has no need to be in order. However, the key idea is to think through all four quadrants.

I-Control: What I know now?

I-Explore: What I want to try?

I-Pursue: How to do it?

I-Preserve: How do I feel?
