Why Kids Need to Move, Touch and Experience to Learn - Mind/Shift

Why Kids Need to Move, Touch and Experience to Learn - Mind/Shift | Coaching Families | 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.

Caron Goode's insight:

Our bodies are designed to move. Even not in motion, the heart is beating, blood and lymph circulating, and we are breathing, seeing and processing. Movement fuels energy and insight.

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.

Start Empathy: How Nurturing Babies Cultivates Empathy

Start Empathy: How Nurturing Babies Cultivates Empathy | Coaching Families | Scoop.it

Sue Gerhardt, author of 'Why Love Matters', illustrates the important connection between nurturing infants and the development of empathy.

 

Why do you think empathy is important for children to develop?
 

Empathy is one of our highest human skills and holds families and societies together. Feeling connected to other people is probably the deepest satisfaction we will ever know. How terrible for children who are being brought up without that capacity – and how risky for the future of the planet. I talk about some of these bigger issues in my book The Selfish Society: How We Forgot to Love Each Other and Made Money Instead (Simon and Schuster 2010).

 

At what point do you think children who have been nurtured at a

young age are able to behave with a spirit of empathy?
