Lon Woodbury's insight:

"It is time that we trained health care professionals to give correct assessments to gifted, talented, and creative children and adults. At the very least, we must help professionals gain sufficient understanding so that they no longer misinterpret characteristics of giftedness."

A Case for Parenting the Dolphin--Not Tiger--Mom Way | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
Today’s disturbing trend of over-parenting is interfering with kids' self-motivation and ability to adapt.


My mom was a Dolphin Mom, which means she was a collaborative (authoritative) parent. She was not a controlling (authoritarian) Tiger Mom, or a indulging (permissive) Jellyfish Mom.

"It was not until I became an expert on the science of self-motivation did I realize the power of play. Play is directly linked to the development of our prefrontal cortex and helps a child develop vital social, intellectual and emotional skills that cannot be acquired any other way."

The Neuroscience Behind Stress and Learning

The Neuroscience Behind Stress and Learning | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | 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.

Chris Brown's curator insight, July 25, 7:31 AM

Consider when you feel learning takes place.  Neroscience has been studying how the brain reacts in certain situations and they have found that:

 

"...superior learning takes place when classroom experiences are relevant to students' lives, interests, and experiences. Lessons can be stimulating and challenging without being intimidating, and the increasing curriculum requirements can be achieved without stress, anxiety, boredom, and alienation as the pervasive emotions of the school day."

 

As learning professionals we should consider the impact of stressful or boring situations on the ability of our learners to be successful.  The article concludes with a call to action:

 

"Joy and enthusiasm are absolutely essential for learning to happen -- literally, scientifically, as a matter of fact and research. Shouldn't it be our challenge and opportunity to design learning that embraces these ingredients?"

 

Joy and enthusiasm are essential...how are you going to embrace these?

Andrea Stewart's curator insight, July 26, 9:09 PM

Not surprising. don't we all remember mor when we are excited about the situation? Involvement.

Terri Rice's curator insight, July 30, 8:39 AM

"Where students of all ages retain the kindergarten enthusiasm....[for] the joy of learning".... Now that is what I hope for in my students everyday. That joy and enthusiasm. Now we know this type of joyful, playful atmosphere enables better imprinting of information into accessible memories. Let's get back to kindergarten thinking!
