Praising Kids for Effort Is Out of Control, Says the Psychologist Who Inadvertently Invented it

Praising Kids for Effort Is Out of Control, Says the Psychologist Who Inadvertently Invented it | Kinsanity | Scoop.it

It’s become something of a self-esteem cliché in the classroom: assuring kids that it’s fine if they messed up their homework assignment on long division, because, hey, they triedreally hard. The underlying intention is a good one, and it can be traced back to Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck’s work on mind-sets. Dweck has argued —

How Do Students That Hate School Learn? - Connect Learning Today

How Do Students That Hate School Learn? - Connect Learning Today | Kinsanity | Scoop.it
It has been my privilege to know many students at many grade and age levels, who have said they hated school. They were all different, referred to as brilliant, disenchanted, disengaged, unmotivated, unchallenged, stubborn, creative, and many more adjectives than a list on a page can hold. Sure, we all realize that students will say they hate school, because that’s the thing kids say, and it is immediately preceded by, or followed by, “I’m bored!” But we need to consider what all students say on this subject, at any level, age, or degree, because there’s no template for students at risk.

Music helps kids focus their attention, control their emotions, and diminish their anxiety | Kinsanity | Scoop.it

Summary from Learning & the Brain Society Newsletter - January 2015

Playing music to improve children's brains 

University of Vermont

 

A University of Vermont College of Medicine child psychiatry team has published new research in the Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry.

Matthew Albaugh, Ph.D., and graduate student research assistant Eileen Crehan, call their study "the largest investigation of the association between playing a musical instrument and brain development." The research continues Hudziak's work with the National Institutes of Health Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Study of Normal Brain Development. Using its database, the team analyzed the brain scans of 232 children ages 6 to 18. What they found is that musical training might also help kids focus their attention, control their emotions and diminish their anxiety.
