"Anthropologist Clifford Geertz said that we can never fully understand the behavior of a community, or an individual, without appreciating the context in which that behavior occurs. That act of looking for clues in the past to the actions of individuals in the present is one of the roots of empathy" - Michael Ungar, Ph.D

Developing Empathy: Don't Take Away the Music | 21C Learning Innovation | Scoop.it
"In today’s modern world, we exert our own powers of selection via culture: for better and for worse. If we want our children to grow up with more ‘empathic concern’, to be less disruptive and more cooperative, then maybe music should be as essential throughout the school curriculum as math and English."

On the Science of Learning

On the Science of Learning | 21C Learning Innovation | Scoop.it

"I'm Judy Willis ... I've been a neurologist for 15 years and after the 15 years my patient practice really changed. I started getting so many referrals for kids whose teachers thought they had ADD, obsessive compulsive disorder, staring spells, seizures petit mal epilepsy, and the increase was huge and yet the kids had no greater incidence of it. And I saw the notes were coming from the school so I visited the schools. I'd look in the classrooms and I saw kids who indeed were playing with everything they could find, staring out the window, coloring on someone's chair or book.

The problem was that the way they were being taught was lectured. There were kids sitting in rows in first grade just listening to the information or filling out worksheets. And I know the brain goes into a state of stress from boredom. So it was my idea that I'd go to school, get a teaching credential, become a teacher and I did it for the past ten years I taught second grade, fifth grade, and seventh grade, and applied what I know about the brain to the classroom and found that just making subtle, easy changes that anyone could do got kids back in the state of voluntary behavior and they learned easily, and they were successful. Their mindsets changed."

"The legacy of the industrial education model is strong. There is little dispute that the model must change at a system level, but progress towards and evolution of the needed changes are still glacially slow. Inspiring examples of a 21st century model are present today, but the imperative to build an education model that is open, connected, engaged and personalised has not yet reached its tipping point."
