Aurion Learning's curator insight, August 2, 2013 1:38 AM

Claude Levi-Strauss was a social anthropologist who "found that stories that are told unconciously mirror the values and myths of a culture."

 

Storytelling is an effective way of communicating values and information.

The Science of Storytelling

The Science of Storytelling | iEduc | Scoop.it
Many studies show us that our brains prefer storytelling to facts.When we read facts, only the language parts of our brains work to understand the meaning. When we read a story, the language parts of our brains and any other part of the brain that we would use if we were actually experiencing what we’re reading, light up.This means that it’s easier for us to remember stories than facts. Our brains can't make major distinctions between a story we’re reading about and something we are actually doing....

How playing an instrument benefits your brain - TED-Ed

How playing an instrument benefits your brain - TED-Ed | iEduc | Scoop.it
"When you listen to music, multiple areas of your brain become engaged and active. But when you actually play an instrument, that activity becomes more like a full-body brain workout. What’s going on? Anita Collins explains the fireworks that go off in musicians’ brains when they play, and examines some of the long-term positive effects of this mental workout."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 27, 3:25 PM

Music does amazing things in your brain, and playing music creates "a full-body brain workout." This video shares what happens in the brain when it hears music, or when the individual is playing music. The science is showing that the playing of music increases executive functioning skills.

Along with a short quiz (that includes multiple choice anc some open response questions) you will also find a number of additional resources that look at the brain as well as how music impacts the brain.

Twenty things educators need to know about digital literacy skills

Twenty things educators need to know about digital literacy skills | iEduc | Scoop.it
"Widely understood to be essential to success in the workplace and modern life, digital literacy is beginning to emerge as a necessary component of curriculum ..."©

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 25, 7:21 PM

What does it mean to be digitally literate? If you ask teachers, students, parents, administrators, and community members the responses may be very different. This post explores this issue and notes (for the teacher):

"Digital literacy isn't about knowing computers inside and out; it's about using technology to change the way you think. If critical thinking skills haven't yet become a part of your students' digital citizenship, it's time to think your teaching strategy."

After the introduction, the post is split into two sections:

5 Teaching Practices that Destroy Digital Literacy. One of the practices is "using 'cool' technology to deliver a planned lesson." To learn why click through to the post.

The final section is 15 Habits to Cultivate in Your Students. Two are listed below.

* Read past the first page of Google results (and my suggestion would be to use some of the many alternative search engines. You may be surprised that many other search engines work better for students).

* Train students to react skeptically if they read the phrase  'Research says...' or 'A recent study revealed..."

To learn more about the 15 habits check out the post. Do you have ideas that would be helpful to others? If so, please share them.

Karolyn van Putten's curator insight, July 26, 10:23 AM

What's more important: content (i.e., facts, theories, people) or the processes by which we embrace/locate/study/learn about content?
