Let's Try Being Honest With Kids - Youth Today | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

I am the idealistic league president, passionately arguing that, in the current scenario, the kids’ votes essentially mean nothing. The  managers add anyone to the ballot that they want; the ones they would not have placed there they don’t vote for anyway.

A Case for Parenting the Dolphin--Not Tiger--Mom Way

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.

Deborah McNelis's curator insight, July 26, 4:02 PM

"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

Neurociencia

Chris Brown's curator insight, July 25, 10:31 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 27, 12:09 AM

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