ProfeRed's curator insight, January 31, 2013 7:59 PM

..."Relationships change the brain


I asked Dr. Daniel Siegel, founder of the emerging field of interpersonal neurobiology: How does the brain change as we influence each other? He has spent more than twenty years investigating the profound influence on us of those around us, or what he calls “the neurobiology of ‘we.’”5 Siegel is Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine, co-director of the Mindful Awareness Research Center, and director of the Mindsight Institute. He’s convinced that the “we” connection is a little-understood, but powerful means for individual and societal transformation that should be taught in schools and churches, and even enter into politics.


“Interpersonal neurobiology isn’t a form of therapy,” he told me, “but a form of integrating a range of scientific research into a picture of the nature of human reality. It’s a phrase I invented to account for the human effort to understand truth. We can define the mind. We can define mental health. We can base everything on science, but I want to base it on all the sciences. We’re looking for what we call ‘consilience.’ If you think of the neuroscientist as a blind man looking at only one part of an elephant, we are trying to discover the ‘whole-elephant’ view of reality.”...

Steve Hargadon: Live Thursday - The Effects of Health and Poverty on Education

Steve Hargadon: Live Thursday - The Effects of Health and Poverty on Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

A recent set of widely-reported studies are highlighting statistics that don't surprise Stephen, but are shocking to those previously unfamiliar with their findings. The National Research Council and Institute of Medicine's U.S. Health in International Perspective found that U.S. citizens suffer from poorer health than nearly all other industrialized countries, and of the 17 high-income countries looked at, the United States is at or near the bottom in at least nine indicators--including infant mortality, heart and lung disease, sexually transmitted infections, and adolescent pregnancies, as well as more systemic issues such as injuries, homicides, and rates of disability. In Differences In Life Expectancy Due To Race And Educational Differences Are Widening, And Many May Not Catch Up, researchers found that when "race and education are combined, the disparity is even more striking. In 2008 white US men and women with 16 years or more of schooling had life expectancies far greater than black Americans with fewer than 12 years of education—14.2 years more for white men than black men, and 10.3 years more for white women than black women."

Rebecca Haas's curator insight, February 19, 1:55 PM

I really enjoyed looking through these Global Competence lesson plans! I could particularly see myself utilizing the Festivals of Light unit plan for fourth grade, as traditions are a topic I enjoy learning and teaching about. I loved that the lesson plan allowed for creativity, yet gave a relatively clear idea of what the students should know by the end of the unit.
