Your Brain Doesn't Contain Memories. It Is Memories

Your Brain Doesn't Contain Memories. It Is Memories | Education and Training | Scoop.it
Recall your favorite memory: the big game you won; the moment you first saw your child's face; the day you realized you had fallen in love. It's not a single memory, though, is it? Reconstructing it, you remember the smells, the colors, the funny thing some other person said, and the way it all made you feel.

Your brain's ability to collect, connect, and create mosaics from these milliseconds-long impressions is the basis of every memory. By extension, it is the basis of you. This isn't just metaphysical poetics. Every sensory experience triggers changes in the molecules of your neurons, reshaping the way they connect to one another. That means your brain is literally made of memories, and memories constantly remake your brain. This framework for memory dates back decades. And a sprawling new review published today in Neuron adds an even finer point: Memory exists because your brain’s molecules, cells, and synapses can tell time.

Defining memory is about as difficult as defining time. In general terms, memory is a change to a system that alters the way that system works in the future. "A typical memory is really just a reactivation of connections between different parts of your brain that were active at some previous time," says neuroscientist Nikolay Kukushkin, coauthor of this paper. And all animals—along with many single-celled organisms—possess some sort of ability to learn from the past.

Using these as writing prompts might be helpful. A teacher could focus on several each day. These questions might give rise to agency and voice for a teacher.

Nonacademic Skills Are Key To Success. But What Should We Call Them?

Nonacademic Skills Are Key To Success. But What Should We Call Them? | Education and Training | Scoop.it
More and more people in education agree on the importance of learning stuff other than academics.

But no one agrees on what to call that "stuff".

There are least seven major overlapping terms in play. New ones are being coined all the time. This bagginess bugs me, as a member of the education media. It bugs researchers and policymakers too.

"Basically we're trying to explain student success educationally or in the labor market with skills not directly measured by standardized tests," says Martin West, at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. "The problem is, you go to meetings and everyone spends the first two hours complaining and arguing about semantics."

West studies what he calls "non-cognitive skills." Although he's not completely happy with that term.

The problem isn't just semantic, argues Laura Bornfreund, deputy director of the education policy program at the New America Foundation. She wrote a paper on what she called "Skills for Success," since she didn't like any of these other terms. "There's a lot of different terms floating around but also a lack of agreement on what really is most important to students."

As Noah Webster, the great American lexicographer and educator, put it back in 1788, "The virtues of men are of more consequence to society than their abilities; and for this reason, the heart should be cultivated with more assiduity than the head."

Improve Your Coaching Skills by Understanding the Psychology of Feedback

Improve Your Coaching Skills by Understanding the Psychology of Feedback | Education and Training | Scoop.it

Do you ever wonder why it’s so difficult to give and receive feedback in the workplace? Many owners and managers struggle with pointing out areas of improvement for their employees. Employees, in turn, often have a hard time hearing they aren’t performing up to standards or that some areas of their work could be better.

While feedback can be a complicated subject, it’s also a necessary one. Why? Because effective and honest feedback is key to an engaged workplace. In a survey, 77% of the workplaces with the highest employee engagement were those that employed a consistent method of feedback.

Responsibility is essential. We should remember we are responsible for teaching, not learning, and should ask what that means in our context.

Random Acts Of Leadership™ | The Coaching Habit – An Interview with Michael Bungay Stanier | Education and Training | Scoop.it
The word “coaching” seems to be used a lot these days. Yet do we really know what “coaching” means or have a shared understanding of what it is?

Michael has a very powerful way of explaining just what coaching is, not as a profession, but rather as a critical skill in leading others. He shows us simple ways to get started in being more coach-like in your leadership.


“Stay curious just a little bit longer and get into action just a little bit slower.”

In our conversation, he offers simple ways to be more “coach-like” in our everyday conversations with others. He suggests it’s okay for you to not have all the answers, even when people come to you for advice.  In fact, Michael shows us how, by developing the coaching habit, you can empower others far more than if you give them your answers.
