The Neuroscience Behind Stress and Learning

The Neuroscience Behind Stress and Learning | Education | Scoop.it

The highest-level executive thinking, making connections, and "aha" moments of insight and creative innovation are more likely to occur in an atmosphere of what Alfie Kohn calls exuberant discovery, where students of all ages retain that kindergarten enthusiasm of embracing each day with the joy of learning.

What you might not know about the Declaration of Independence

What you might not know about the Declaration of Independence | Education | Scoop.it
In June 1776, a little over a year after the start of the American Revolutionary War, the US Continental Congress huddled together in a hot room in Philadelphia to talk independence. Kenneth C. Davis dives into some of the lesser known facts about the process of writing the Declaration of Independence and questions one very controversial omission.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 3, 10:29 PM

Here is a TED-Ed video that is applicable to this weekend (at least in the United States). There are some important facts that many of us do not know about the Declaration of Independence and this video presents them in an accessible format.
TED-Ed videos tend to be short (this one is just under 4 minutes) and also have additional resources as well as some thought provoking questions and  a discussion.

Take four minutes of your day and find out if you know the facts shared in this video.

100 Of The Best Educational Games For iPad | Education | Scoop.it
"For some reason, educational games are getting an increasingly bad rap. Educators are questioning their merits on social media. Studies are popping up saying they don’t help. Psychologists are cautioning parents about impact on attention span. Part of this could be over-inflated expectations. If we expect a game to teach children anything other than what that games simulates, we’re setting ourselves up for disappointment."

Mocomi is a website geared to elementary and middle school students. Along with videos they have a wide variety of activities in areas including the arts, civics, culture, English, environment, geography, history, science, and math. They also have an online magazine with a specific theme. The current one is called Under Water, and you can access 19 additional magazines online.

This might be a site you use with students, or one that they might explore during free time. Richard Byrne suggests that the videos "are a model of animated informational videos" and students in middle school and high school "could follow the model to create their own short videos to demonstrate their understanding of a topic."
