The Chorus to Remember

Music can make a huge difference in your workday. Feel free to crank up the volume if noise has you working like a snail, you've got a case of the Monday's, or you've got something mundane or familiar to do. Ideally, though, make your playlists out of songs you already know, and if your tasks involve any sort of linguistic processing, focus on lyric-free options. Lastly, if you have something to learn, pump up your mood with music before you get started.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, July 23, 5:12 AM

Classical or instrumental music enhances mental performance more than music with lyrics. Music can make rote or routine tasks (think folding laundry or filing papers) less boring and more enjoyable. Runners who listen to music go faster. But when you need to give learning and remembering your full attention, silence is golden

I take away two concepts that this research suggests.  One is support for experiential learning.  The other is that the experience of struggling to find a solution is a key ingredient, which is what other research suggests is important for learning life lessons. -Lon

“What we know about human brain function is that it can’t be divorced from social environment,” Eliot said. “The more teachers appreciate how crucial that is to have healthy positive, nurturing relationships and extensive bonding and connecting and mentoring of their students, the more successful they’ll be, the healthier their students will be and the better they’ll learn.”

How the Brain Dumps Its Trash [Video]

How the Brain Dumps Its Trash [Video] | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it

"A recently discovered waste-removal system is a linchpin in preserving neural health" By Gary Stix on March 1, 2016

 

"The brain gets rid of some 1.5 kilograms of waste products a year, equivalent to its own weight. One puzzle: Where does its built-in garbage disposal reside? New findings that reveal detritus-carrying passages—what is called the glymphatic system—traffics the brain’s discarded leavings.
Much of this activity, moreover, occurs during sleep. Manipulating the glymphatic system may be a new way to treat Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases by removing buildups of toxic proteins. Watch a talk on the glymphatic system by Maiken Nedergaard, author of “Brain Drain” in the March Scientific American."

What Happens in the Brain When Children Learn?

What Happens in the Brain When Children Learn? | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it
Have you lost your house keys recently? If so, you probably applied a spot of logical thinking. You looked first in the most obvious places – bags and pockets – and then mentally retraced your steps to the point when you last used them.

Researchers looking at child development often use search-and-find tasks to look at the ways in which children apply what they are learning about the physical world. Tests carried out on toddlers reveal that something quite remarkable happens in child development between the ages of two and five – a stage identified by both educationalists and neuroscientists as critical to the capacity for learning.

Dr Sara Baker is a researcher into early childhood at the Faculty of Education. She is interested in the role of the brain’s prefrontal lobe in how young children learn to adapt their understanding to an ever-shifting environment. Many of her studies chart changes in children’s ways of thinking about the world. She uses longitudinal designs to examine the shape of individual children’s learning curves month by month.

Research by Baker and colleagues is contributing to an understanding of the acquisition of skills essential to learning. She explains: “The brain’s frontal lobe is one of the four major divisions of the cerebral cortex. It regulates decision-making, problem-solving and behaviour. We call these functions executive skills – they are at the root of the cognitive differences between humans and other animals. My executive functions enable me to resist a slice of cake when I know I’m soon having dinner.”

Great article for those who are "fighting" the growth mindset/standards grading idea. I love the idea of both, and this article does a nice job explaining not only why both lead to increased student achievement, but also uses the fixed mindset many have about math to explain why it works. Good, easy read.
