Brain Research: Adolescents Learn More in Cooperative Groups | MiddleWeb | Social Emotional Learning (SEL) | Scoop.it
Judy Willis, a neurologist & middle grades teacher, says adolescent brains learn more through interactive, interdependent group work.

Did you know that "peer group influence plays an important developmental role in the psychosocial process of separation from parents"? What does this mean to teachers of middle school students? That "interactive, interdependent group work" helps middle school students "build happy, learning brains."

This post will help you learn more about brain science, successful group work, how to plan for success, provides some researched-based guidelines and more.

The Mysterious Workings Of The Adolescent Brain

"Why do teenagers seem so much more impulsive, so much less self-aware than grown-ups? Cognitive neuroscientist Sarah-Jayne Blakemore compares the prefrontal cortex in adolescents to that of adults, to show us how typically “teenage” behavior is caused by the growing and developing brain. Sarah-Jayne Blakemore studies the social brain -- the network of brain regions involved in understanding other people -- and how it develops in adolescents. 'Almost 400 years ago, Shakespeare was portraying adolescents in a very similar light to the light that we portray them in today — but today we try to understand their behavior in terms of the underlying changes that are going on in their brain.' | via TED

Teenage Brains Are Malleable And Vulnerable, Researchers Say

Teenage Brains Are Malleable And Vulnerable, Researchers Say | Social Emotional Learning (SEL) | Scoop.it

Adolescent brains have gotten a bad rap, according to neuroscientists.

 

It's true that teenage brains can be impulsive, scientists reported at the Society for Neuroscience meeting in New Orleans. But adolescent brains are also vulnerable, dynamic and highly responsive to positive feedback, they say.

 

"The teen brain isn't broken," says Jay Giedd, a child psychiatry researcher at the National Institute of Mental Health. He says the rapid changes occurring in the brains of teenagers make these years "a time of enormous opportunity."

 

Part of the bad rap has come from studies suggesting that adolescent brains are "wired" to engage in risky behavior such as drug use or unsafe sex, says BJ Casey of Weill Cornell Medical College.

Eloise Cochrane's curator insight, November 25, 2014 10:00 PM

according to this article, teenage/adolescent minds are "vulnerable" and that we are pretty much wired to participate in such risky behaviour. This warns the audience without telling them not to do this risky behaviours about the serious risks of them. they use shocking facts about the human brain to achieve this.

Claire Rogers's curator insight, November 25, 2014 10:06 PM

The teenage brain still is not fully functioned, it is still functioning and drugs are not helping. Teenagers taking drugs can cause major brain damage because the brain is not full adapting to it.  Drugs is one of the biggest killers and it is killing millions of teenagers each year for drug over dose. Teenagers should not take drugs there is no reason to and neither should adults.

Minarni Tirta's curator insight, July 1, 2013 10:33 PM

EQ really rocks! its presence is subtle but the result is real! To illustrate this :I was looking for my friend in one of those employment agencies when the scenario unfold.Later, I found out a little bit more about  " the offender" as I felt so sorry for her and chatted with her. Apparently 'the offender' is a trainer but was unfortunately finding it hard to land herself a job in the new land she just came to. She was 'enrolled' in one of the government's employment agencies, which was supposed to help her find a job ( by sending her CV to reverse marketers, setting up seminars for her to attend - on revamping CV and tailoring her cover letter to the job she is applying.) She was glad as these means she will also find new friends. One day she said she made a pact with her new found friends to practice one of her tools that she uses in her coaching/ training business. She was practicing one of her tools in one of the rooms in that organisation, when someone came up to her asked her what she was doing ( as it seemed to the untrained eyes, she was playing a board game but once she explained it, that someone told her that she needed to book the room first. So she duly waited for the manager and put what she was doing on hold. The way the manager came  & told the "offender" that was definitely not fitting what I expect of a manager. ( this was the part where I  actually the witnessed) I looked at the unfolding scenario with a sense of disbelieved.  While the manager maybe correct (all organisations have in place their rules and regulations), the way 'the offender' was being handled was really demeaning and lacking of respect.  Instead of saying "I am sorry but this place is strictly for job searching only and you will need to practice elsewhere"( or something along the line) , she came up with words that were quite hurtful and the attitude was one of " I am the rule here, follow or out". what makes it worse was the fact it was on the public domain part of the organisation.Undoubtedly 'the offender' reacted in ways fished out by the manager heavy handling of her(she later told me) . She felt like a criminal and at any one time, there were 2 people ( the manager and another sturdy man, next to the manager, ever ready to bounce her from the organisation).

 

understandably the manager has to be firm and stern as some of the unemployed probably already demoralized and not themselves, can be insensitive or even unreasonable, but I wonder at the same time, if the manager was also proactively looking for that kind of behaviour by the way she handled the 'offender'?

ALL jobs need EQ, but especailly so with jobs that connect you with others and jobs that need you to built human relationship, having human touch. With EQ tools we will be able to diffuse the situation in a better way. Like everything else EQ gets better with more practice. so kids and EQ is definitely a good idea, no, It is a great idea! and it is definitely "TAUGHTABLE!" ( did I just coined a new word?):)

"At a recent congressional hearing, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan agreed with Shriver’s positive assessment of SEL’s potential. "These are learned skills," he said. "Children can have huge challenges, but when you help them learn how to handle them, you have a chance … If we are not addressing this, we're not in the game."

John Michel's curator insight, July 4, 2013 1:55 PM

Empowering students with tools and techniques to calm themselves, observe the world, and exert positive pressure on their environments reduces the distraction caused by inner and outer turmoil, freeing kids up to concentrate more effectively on the rest of what they are learning. In this way, SEL not only helps enhance students’ emotional wellbeing and maturity but also improves their academic achievement.
