The whole brain based learning (WBT) has been successfully used by many teachers.
However, its effectiveness has to be looked into. It engages the body and mind of the child and makes them active learners. Being more progressive in nature it does not rely on lectures and instead promotes creativity of the students. However, care should be taken because if it is not practiced effectively it can lead to confusion among learners.
There is lack of concrete evidence to prove the effectiveness of WBT over the other methods and hence it should be adopted judiciously.
