We're About to Tell You the Secret to Creativity, and You May NOT Want to Sit Down - InformED | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it

The study found that walking indoors or outdoors similarly boosted creative inspiration. The act of walking itself, and not the environment, was the main factor. A person walking indoors – on a treadmill in a room facing a blank wall – produced twice as many creative responses compared to a person sitting down.

Anne Whisken's curator insight, May 8, 2014 7:51 PM

'It’s important to note that, according to the study, the type of creativity affected by walking is associated with “divergent,” rather than “convergent,” thinking. In other words, walking benefits creative brainstorming but not the kind of focused thinking required for single, correct answers.'

How Storytelling Can Enhance Any Learning Experience

How Storytelling Can Enhance Any Learning Experience | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it

Researchers are discovering just how powerful an effect a good story can have on the brain, and not just in terms of entertainment. A memorable yarn can also help us retain important information, both in casual and formal learning settings.

Story telling was a great tool in the past. It has been rediscovered now.
The reason why story telling  succeeds is it provides a context for the learning. It helps to answer the key questions - how and why - that often are ignored in other methods of instructions. Story telling, I wd say, is human-centered instruction design.

BROOKLYN, New York – I’m sitting on the floor at The Academy of Talented Scholars (PS 682) in Bensonhurst, watching kindergarteners create robots on an iPad.

It’s one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen, and I don’t even like children.

The exercise is part of the curriculum led by co-teachers Stacy Butsikares and Allison Bookbinder, focused on helping the 5- and 6-year-old students come up with ways to solve problems.

The first step is to identify a problem happening in the school. The kindergarteners come up with ideas like kids horsing around in the lunch line, or not throwing trash away properly, or making too much noise at recess. Students are instructed to create a robot that could solve the problem, and draw the robot on a piece of paper.

Once the robot is sketched out, the real fun begins. Using the app The Robot Factory, these pint-sized problem-solvers bring their robot ideas to life.

How To Teach Children That Failure Is The Secret To Success - NPR

How To Teach Children That Failure Is The Secret To Success - NPR | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
Is failure a positive opportunity to learn and grow, or is it a negative experience that hinders success? How parents answer that question has a big influence on how much children think they can improve their intelligence through hard work, a study says.

"Parents are a really critical force in child development when you think about how motivation and mindsets develop," says Kyla Haimovitz, a professor of psychology at Stanford University. She coauthored the study, published in Psychological Science with colleague Carol Dweck, who pioneered research on mindsets. "Parents have this powerful effect really early on and throughout childhood to send messages about what is failure, how to respond to it."

Although there's been a lot of research on how these forces play out, relatively little looks at what parents can do to motivate their kids in school, Haimovitz says. This study begins filling that gap.

"The structure of formal learning in most classrooms is a basic sequence of activity>lesson>unit, with a culminating assessment of some sort. Whether this assessment is a performance, a project or a traditional multiple-choice and short response exam, its function is the same: to evaluate understanding of a given set of standards."

As emphasized in the excerpt below, I picture this as the old serfdom... Those who are fully digitally literate will live in the castle and those who are not will not. Further, they will be woefully ignorant of what is going on within those walls.  We must make being digital not just trendy but instead create a culture where people realize that it is a landscape that has become an intricate part of living on the planet.  It is not 'other' and people there are not 'those people' but rather a fully integrated part of humanity.

"“Students unable to navigate through a complex digital landscape will no longer be able to participate fully in the economic, social and cultural life around them,” he explained."
