More Than 50 Years Of Putting Kids' Creativity To The Test

More Than 50 Years Of Putting Kids' Creativity To The Test | Research in Education | Scoop.it
A bit like an IQ test measures intelligence, the Torrance Test and others like it measure creative ability. They help figure out when investments pay off, and they can draw attention to hidden problems, like why elementary kids are scoring better than high school students.
Taho's insight:

CQ - Creativity Quotient - can be measured and that schooling may be sucking the creativity out of students. This article states that elementary students scored higher than high school students in CQ testing.

Losing our grip: More students entering school without fine motor skills | Research in Education | Scoop.it
Schools are having to spend more money on occupational therapy because children are entering school without fine motor skills.
Taho's insight:

Kids need to manipulate their environments to understand spatial concepts. They usually learn not by being told, but by doing.”

Concerns about physical readiness for school are growing locally and nationally.

Gluten Free and Allergy Free Art Supply List

Gluten Free and Allergy Free Art Supply List | Research in Education | Scoop.it
I can not stress the importance of gluten-free art supplies enough, especially for the preschool set.  Little ones are notorious for putting anything that is not intended to be eaten straight into their mouth (see exhibit A, below). And don't think you're off the hook if you have older children.
Taho's insight:

This is very good information for art teachers to have.

Should children run wild in art galleries and museums?

Should children run wild in art galleries and museums? | Research in Education | Scoop.it
New research suggests that children learn best when allowed to zoom about – but what about everyone else? Michelle Warwicker weighs the arguments.
Taho's insight:

I don't want to be around wild children in a gallery.  Their inquisitivenss is fun but their hyper motive state could be harmful to others or to artwork, so I don't believe allowing kids to run wild for the sake of their own learning should be the primary concern in a gallery setting.  There are several other much more suitable setting for such behavior.

Taho's insight:

The earth has is environmental boundaries (9), some of which may have been pushed by humans beyond the point of return, and they are global boundaries that nearly all cultures are pushing too far.  Very, very soon our global culture has to begin agreeing to setting limits and restrictions that could potentially help our planet sustain human life a little bit longer than the dismal projections now indicate.

Does globalization mean we will become one culture? | Research in Education | Scoop.it
Modern humans have created many thousands of distinct cultures. So what will it mean if globalization turns us into one giant, homogenous world culture?

Via April Wright
Taho's insight:

In this article on BBC.com, Mark Pagel asks what will life be like in a world where people are more alike than different.  Pagel points out the human capacity to build upon one another’s ideas and the human capacity for growth.  He refers to this process as cumulative cultural adaptation and asserts that the rise of technology speeds this process along.  Pagel describes the duality of human nature in which humans tend to separate into distinct groups, or tribes, while at the same time having the ability to unify.  Pagel predicts that there will be limits to unification and that there will be uncertainty and conflict along the way.

Multi Meets Poly: Multiculturalism and Polyculturalism Go on a First Date - Videos / Films - Silk Road Rising

Karen Brinker's curator insight, January 25, 2015 8:49 AM

An "onstage" theater production . . . that is also an online video . . .shows a first date with multiculturalism and polyculturalism. This academic performance helps to further understand the difference between poly and multi. Poly speaks about cultures melding together to become exciting new identities, or cultures being fluid. Multi keeps cultures separated and operated along side one another. The two characters are constantly trying to "one-up" each other. The webpage describes this video as an "intellectual workout" and I 100% agree! It requires a lot of thinking (and some dictionary use for me). #ufglobal

Here's How An Artist With Synesthesia "Sees" Famous Songs | IFLScience

Here's How An Artist With Synesthesia "Sees" Famous Songs | IFLScience | Research in Education | Scoop.it
Synesthesia is a very rare neurological condition in which the usually individual neural pathways in the brain down which sensory messages travel become inexplicably linked. This allows “sufferers” to see sound, and taste colors. Synesthesia, from the Greek words syn (union) and aesthesis (sensation), affects roughly 1 in 2,000 people, affecting different people in different ways.
Taho's insight:

I don't have synesthesia, but I do taste wine in colors.  Right now the only colors of taste that I am unwavering on are green, deep dark brown, and yellow.  I suppose these also happen to be my favorite flavors, making my "research" on these colors much easier.  

I'm still working on developing consistency with other colors of taste.

John W. Momot's curator insight, February 10, 2015 11:29 PM

Many contemporary spaces and buildings have homogenized uses. The need for architecture to move us is acute as ever. A library can heighten appreciation of space and light. A hospital can be a megalithic, sterile factory-like complex, or a calming, spiritual retreat, like the cancer center pictured above.

Strauss. V. ( July 8, 2015). Why so many kids can’t sit still in school today. The Washington Post. Retrieved from: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/answer-sheet/wp/2014/07/08/why-so-many-kids-cant-sit-still-in-school-today/ .

 Strauss’s article discusses ADHD and its growth over the U.S. in the last decade. She also discuss how movement is important in the classroom. Studies have shown that students in the early 80’s had more core strength than kids in today’s classroom. Without that core strength todays learners are not getting the things they need to be active/ ready learners. How will we solve this problem? Why has it been stuffed under the rug?
