Neurodidactics, a relatively new interdisciplinary research field, represents an interface between neuroscience, didactics, educational science and psychology. It is based on the findings of brain research and provides principles and proposals for effective (brain-based) learning and teaching. This paper shall describe some basics of neurodidactics and learning. It presents the most important principles of neurodidactics and brain-based teaching, learning and memory. This should give an impetus for using these principals in ICT and computer science education classes. With this in mind, some brain-based ideas and approaches for the classroom are explained in this report. Computer-supported interdisciplinary projects e.g. apply several neurodidactical principles and therefore they may help to find a better and more effective way of learning and teaching.
