Sharon Berman's curator insight, November 25, 2015 3:30 PM

Not only is the graphic very telling, there are lessons to be learnt within this short article.  Students, no matter what age, will benefit from "talking" to teach others, or to demonstrate their understanding.

Kristie Coster's curator insight, November 25, 2015 4:50 PM

Yes!! I sometimes think that the teacher who is standing up the front doing all the talking is the one who is doing all the work.

Nine Things Educators Need to Know About the Brain

Our brains require stimulation and connection to survive and thrive. A brain without connection to other brains and without sufficient challenge will shrink and eventually die—moreover, the modern human brain’s primary environment is our matrix of social relationships.

Make the connection - tune  the kids into how their brain works

Edgar Mata's curator insight, November 16, 2015 8:20 PM

Physical activity exerts a stimulating influence on the entire brain that keeps it functioning at an optimal level. Exercise has been shown to stimulate the birth of new neurons in the hippocampus and to pump more oxygen through the brain, stimulating capillary growth and frontal-lobe plasticity.

Additionally, Gladwell failed to adequately distinguish between the quantity of hours spent practicing, and the quality of that practice. This misses a huge portion of Ericsson’s findings, and is the reason why Tim Ferriss scoffs at Gladwell’s 10,000 hour rule in this video.

What does intelligence look like?

What does intelligence look like? | Affordable Learning | Scoop.it
For much of its history schooling has been obsessed with one type of intelligence as evidenced by what is given time within the learning day and that which is the focus of assessment. Indeed, pedagogy, curriculum and assessment within schools has delivered a clear and consistent message about what constitutes intelligence. Knowledge, defined as the recall of information, literacy, defined as the ability to read and write and numeracy, defined as the ability to calculate, have formed the pillars of educational systems and have both framed and been framed by our view of intelligence.
