In Education, Technology Changes Everything and Nothing

In Education, Technology Changes Everything and Nothing | early childhood education and more | Scoop.it

We have been investing more money per student, while outcomes have been flat. Faced with many challenges, we have turned to any potential solution. Many education policymakers hail technology, in particular, as the savior.

*Simply put... "Great teaching is about emotionally engaging the learner in a way that is individualized."

The Twelve Absolutes of Leadership

The Twelve Absolutes of Leadership | early childhood education and more | Scoop.it

Gary Burnison considers leadership to be a privilege. Most people like the idea of leadership but few count the cost. He says, “To lead is to be all in, transparent and accessible, calm in the face of upset and even crisis, and always mindful that you are a steward of something bigger than yourself.” That’s not easy. To whom much is given much is required. That’s the part that easily trips us up.

The Importance of Tinkering in Education Even if it Means Getting Messy

The Importance of Tinkering in Education Even if it Means Getting Messy | early childhood education and more | Scoop.it

MythBusters host Adam Savage has a thing or two to say about the importance of tinkering - even if that means it gets messy. “If you don’t get a chance to fail, if you don’t get a chance to try things and not get them right the first time, and you keep on doing it until you do get that specific kind of success, then you become so risk-averse that you in fact get an allergy to trying new things. And that is the worst thing we can do to kids.”

What Kids Should Know About Their Own Brains

What Kids Should Know About Their Own Brains | early childhood education and more | Scoop.it

Neuroscience may seem like an advanced subject of study, perhaps best reserved for college or even graduate school. 

 

First, while parents and teachers talk often with young children about parts of the body and how they work, they rarely mention this most important organ - their brain.

 

Secondly, children can’t observe their own brains, and so are left to guess about what’s going on inside their heads—not unlike the state of ignorance in which adults dwelled for many centuries before the founding of neuroscience as a scientific discipline.

 

Marshall and Comalli designed a 20 minute lesson about the brain that they delivered to first-grade students. They learned that their brain was not just for thinking but also for seeing, hearing, smelling, and feeling. 

 

Carol Dweck's research with 5th graders and her program Brainology, children's attitudes and behaviors regarding achievement and failure are already in place by preschool. Dweck's research found the importance of mentioning how your brain grows very early.
