Sensorimotor integration is fundamental to school success and learning. Think about the importance of sensorimotor integration to teaching, learning, and memory. Using the course materials, justify why you believe sensory stimulation is so important to include in lesson design and planning. Provide an example of a stimulus or specific strategy you would implement within your classroom (as an instructional designer or facilitator/teacher) to make learning more effective. Be very specific in explaining how these stimuli would improve student learning and how you believe this strategy addresses brain-based learning. Be sure to analyze the brain’s role in motor cognition and stimulation and the relationship to teaching and learning. In addition to Chapter 2 of the Willis and Mitchell (2014) textbook, Chapter 4 of the Jensen text and Chapter 5 of the Given text, which are listed in the recommend resources section, may help you to address this discussion.
