The 21st Century Graduate: The Essential Cognitive Backpack

The 21st Century Graduate: The Essential Cognitive Backpack | Mind, Brain, and Teaching | Scoop.it

"Many high school graduates look back on their secondary school journey with disappointment, believing that they were not adequately prepared for college or for work. In a recent poll, approximately 40 percent of recent graduates reported key gaps in their preparation. An overwhelming majority noted that if they could do high school over again, they would work harder and take more challenging courses (Peter D. Hart Research Associates/Public Opinion Strategies, 2005). To avoid putting so many young people in this disheartening situation, high schools need to design a comprehensive program that strengthens not only traditional academic and technological competencies, but also the equally important attributes of a successful adult that U.S. schools often overlook. The presence or absence of these attributes—sometimes referred to as 'the soft skills'—affects all start-up adults as they advance (or perhaps decline) through college and into the early phases of their careers. The gear can be sorted into what I have called the four I's of young adult mind-work (Levine, 2005): interpretation, instrumentation, interaction, and inner direction. The following discussion highlights some of the most indispensable gear that ought to find its way into every graduate's cognitive backpack." | by Mel Levine

Beth Dichter's curator insight, February 14, 2013 8:07 PM

This post looks at what neurologists call executive function and eduation calls higher order thinking. A list of nine "ways to describe some of the executive functions when relating the arts to creativity and the thinking processes" is provided which includes:

* Conceptual thinking and transfer of knowledge

* Judgmen

* Critical analysis

* Induction and deduction

If you are interested in learning more about how creativity correlates with academic achievement as well as social and emotional success and how it helps to develop skills that support higher order thinking (a hot topic with Common Core) click through to the article.

Frontiers | Neuromyths in Education: Prevalence and Predictors of Misconceptions among Teachers | Frontiers in Educational Psychology | Mind, Brain, and Teaching | Scoop.it

There is widespread interest among teachers in the application of neuroscientific research findings in educational practice. Neuroscientific research has received a lot of attention since 1990–2000, which was declared the “Decade of the Brain” in the United States. Yet, the field of neuroscience is complex and the accurate transfer of research findings to the classroom is often difficult (Jolles et al., 2005; Devonshire and Dommett, 2010; Ansari et al., 2011). This gap between neuroscience and education has enabled many misconceptions about scientific findings to occur

Playing Music as a Child Leads to Better Listening as an Adult

Playing Music as a Child Leads to Better Listening as an Adult | Mind, Brain, and Teaching | Scoop.it
A new study indicates that musical instruction for just a few years during childhood can have long-lasting benefits...

This post looks at a study published in the Journal of Neuroscience that finds that "just one to five years of experience playing music as a child was associated with an improved cognitive ability in processing complex sounds as a young adult." 

This study supports the need for public education to provide music education, "[Along with] earlier research, we infer that a few years of music lessons also confer advantages in how one perceives and attends to sounds in everyday communication situations, such as noisy restaurants." For more information click through to the article.
