This is why I play music in the background when students are working in class.  I use Pandora, but that's not the only music station out there.  There was a difference in how they worked (more focused) as well as their final product (more detailed and obviously made with care).

Researchers provide new insight into how the brain makes memories

Researchers provide new insight into how the brain makes memories | School Libraries | Scoop.it

"Every time you make a memory, somewhere in your brain a tiny filament reaches out from one neuron and forms an electrochemical connection to a neighboring neuron.

A team of biologists at Vanderbilt University, headed by Associate Professor of Biological Sciences Donna Webb, studies how these connections are formed at the molecular and cellular level.

The filaments that make these new connections are called dendritic spines and, in a series of experiments described in the April 17 issue of the Journal of Biological Chemistry, the researchers report that a specific signaling protein, Asef2, a member of a family of proteins that regulate cell migration and adhesion, plays a critical role in spine formation. This is significant because Asef2 has been linked to autism and the co-occurrence of alcohol dependency and depression."

From the article:  "Since 2008, enrollment in teacher education programs in California is down 53%, and other bellwether states report a similar trend. Nationally, U.S. Department of Education statistics that include both traditional and alternative preparatory programs show that there were nearly 90,000 fewer teachers in training in 2012 than in 2008."  The article discusses some of the reasons why this is happening.  Of particular interest are the many comments from readers that follow.

Why Kids Need to Move, Touch and Experience to Learn - Mind/Shift | School Libraries | Scoop.it
When students use their bodies in the learning process, it can have a big effect, even if it seems silly or unconnected to the learning goal at hand. Researchers have found that when students use their bodies while doing mathematical storytelling (like with word problems, for example), it changes the way they think about math. “We understand language in a richer, fuller way if we can connect it to the actions we perform,” said Sian Beilock, professor of psychology at the University of Chicago.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 19, 2015 2:27 PM

There are several topics cover d in this article. The first is the use of movement to augment learning. This is not a new idea as many foreign language teachers have been using and recommending TPR - Total Physical Response as a p highly effective teaching strategy.  

 

The second point is about the distracting nature of highly decorated rooms. In my experience, the walls need to teach.  I do agree that decorations unrelated to content are irrelevant and distracting to learning.  We do not need photos of skateboarders or beaches that encourage daydreaming.  However, decorations that review content already taught or link concents within the content are highly effective learning strategies.  Visual cues can help spiral learning.  I had teachers who created a visual content organizer and added visuals as they progressed through the year.

 

the third point is about writing as a means to reduce test anxiety.
