Does Losing Handwriting In School Mean Losing Other Skills Too?

ChristopherBell's curator insight, June 12, 8:30 PM

This is an ongoing discussion between my English Teacher friend and I.  I think the real question is why are we still teaching keyboarding??

Allan Shaw's curator insight, June 13, 1:21 AM

It is becoming clearer that it is important that we do not lose  handwriting as a skill! Strong positive neural development in a child is far more important than adeptness in using digital technologies. If research continues to support these initial studies many educators will need to reflect and possibly readjust.

Sharla Shults's curator insight, June 16, 2:57 PM

New evidence suggests that the links between handwriting and broader educational development run deep. Children not only learn to read more quickly when they first learn to write by hand, but they also remain better able to generate ideas and retain information. In other words, it’s not just what we write that matters — but how.

We do need to encourage creativity in our students. They learn so much more when they handle the content to do something with it.

7 Tenets of Creative Thinking

7 Tenets of Creative Thinking | Pourquoi's innovation and creativity digest | Scoop.it

In school, we learn about geniuses and their ideas, but how did they get those ideas? What are the mental processes, attitudes, work habits, behaviors, and beliefs that enable creative geniuses to view the same things as the rest of us, yet see something different?

Some excellent reminders - 'All experiences are neutral...you don't see things are THEY are, you see them as YOU are'.

Deborah Welsh's curator insight, June 3, 12:29 AM

We often don't see the creativity in ourselves or in others. Creativity can be learned. Having a growth mindset is a good beginning.

Thanks Allan!

Ness Crouch's curator insight, June 6, 11:25 PM

Creativity is something that can be nourished but can it be learned? I'm not able to decide on that yet.

Sharla Shults's curator insight, June 16, 1:27 PM

Don't let your creative juices run dry! We are all students of life!

How Emotional Connections Can Trigger Creativity and Learning

How Emotional Connections Can Trigger Creativity and Learning | Pourquoi's innovation and creativity digest | Scoop.it

Scientists are always uncovering new ways into how people learn best, and some of the most recent neuroscience research has shown connections between basic survival functions, social and emotional reactions to the world, and creative impulses.

 

Students’ social and emotional reactions to learning are imperative to feeling motivated to learn and to their ability to creatively solve problems, according to Mary Helen Immordino-Yang, who wrote Musings on the Neurobiological and Evolutionary Origins of Creativity via a Developmental Analysis of One Child’s Poetry [PDF]. Her research tries to understand why emotions are so important to learning by examining what happens to brain functions.

 

“Neuroimaging experiments show us that we use the very same neural systems to feel our bodies as to feel our relationships, our moral judgments, and our creative inspiration,” said Immordino-Yang, a professor at USC’s Rossier School of Education and an expert on the neuroscience of learning and creativity.

 

Her whose work focuses on how neuroscience can help teachers understand the ways students learn best, and to that end, she’s created a free online curriculum for teachers.

Allowing kids the space for the interplay between the emotional and cognitive spaces will benefit the long-term learner.
