Childhood Trauma Leads to Brains Wired for Fear

Childhood Trauma Leads to Brains Wired for Fear | Education | Scoop.it
Last week, a report by the University of San Diego School of Law found that about 686,000 children were victims of abuse and neglect in 2013.


Traumatic childhood events can lead to mental health and behavioral problems later in life, explains psychiatrist and traumatic stress expert Bessel van der Kolk, author of the recently published book, The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma.


Children’s brains are literally shaped by traumatic experiences, which can lead to problems with anger, addiction, and even criminal activity in adulthood, says van der Kolk. Sound Medicine’s Barbara Lewis spoke with him about his book.

Dorothy Retha Cook 's comment, July 30, 2015 11:45 AM
Just one question and I am not coming from the race view but from the children view. The children of slaves were terrorized and traumatized beyond where I want to go or think they were not their own but property of the Master to do with as He saw fit. Now the Master was Liberalin view just as long as it was for his benefit and the slave children were used to purchase property/land and homes and much more for their masters gain not their own. The culture they had was endoctrinated by sheer abuse and brute force but not one of them ever was given a choice. The culture was done as the master say's or get beatin like a dog to the blood runs from their bodies and even for more punishment they were made to watch their parents and other slave members be hang by a neuce by the master with a word of if you ever think of doing thus and so you will surely be next. For some reason the government has not changed much and neither have the abuse of the children and a great deal of it is not in the home or culture environment and some children by law have to return back to the abusive environment and be abused or they or their parent go to jail by law. therefore my question is liberal parenting or not in the 21st century
Dorothy Retha Cook 's comment, July 30, 2015 11:48 AM
Who has the true authority over your child(ren) you or the GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS Liberal or not? sorry did not get question in in previous post. WHO HAS THE FINAL SAY and what say do you have if your child(ren) are traumatized by the GOVERNMENT?
Ngozi Angeline Godwell's comment, August 14, 2015 9:17 AM
I quote:"In essence the kids live in a war zone and they get "bombed" and "shelled" and hurt and if they complain there will be more of the same. And on top of that you have "traps" that look innocent but are "gotchas" ! So - from the perspective of an abused kid - nothing, absolutely nothing can be trusted! A little story. A childless couple adopts a foster kid as they can't seem to have kids on their own. They encourage being called mom and dad! She now gets pregnant. The couple fears for their newborn and promptly send the kid back to foster hell! I ask: "You are surprised that they don't trust?". Dolphins are intelligent! We train them. Every human being is trained to live in their cultural matrix! And for abused kids it is enforced with inhuman punishment - not treats. You get what you put in! You put in hate and force and terror - you can't expect love! The kids see aggression and hate and force and brutality and that is their life experience? And if they saw "love" there was probably a trick to really set them up for failure. Gregory Bateson's book "Steps to an Ecology of Mind" touches on these issues.

A Pedagogical Model for the use of iPads for Learning

A Pedagogical Model for the use of iPads for Learning | Education | Scoop.it
Over the past several months, my team and I have been busy planning for the
implementation of a One to World (often called 1:1) iPad program in grade
4. We have been successfully using iPads since 2011 at our school and have
been piloting a One to World programme in three grade 4 classes throughout
this year. The program has been enormously successful, largely because we
focused primarily on learning outcomes rather than the device itself. 

Pedagogy plays an important role in the successful implementation of any
new programme. It helps to guide teachers in effective implementation and
sets the foundation of what effective implementation actually looks like in
the classroom. In developing our own model for the One to World Programme
in grade 4 and choosing apps for teachers and students to use, we turned to
research as well as to pedagogical models for learning and technology
integration.

The key models that we looked at were Bloom's Taxonomy (using Bloom's 21),
the Learning Pyramid, SAMR model for technology integration and the ISTE
Standards. In addition, we are guided by the school's Mission (Engage,
Enlighten, Empower), the IB framework and the Visible Thinking initiative.
These models, as well as other popular models, all point to the same
fundamental belief that students learn best when they are engaged in
meaningful learning activities where they are given the opportunity to
learn from each other and share their ideas and thinking with others. 
Inquiry Based Learning, Project Based Learning, Constructionism, 
Constructivism, and so forth, all advocate for student-driven learning.

In combining the different models into a pyramid, the focus on learning is
on the bottom of the pyramid where the focus in on higher order thinking
skills and activities which promote collaboration and creation. From the
perspective of the SAMR Model, the aim is to move towards Redefinition so
that learning can be transformative. The ISTE Standards sit outside the
pyramid since these skills are interwoven throughout the curriculum. 

Apps were placed on the pyramid based on the types of learning engagements
which they promote. Those at the top serve more as digital substitutes for
traditional classroom tools such as calculators, dictionaries,
manipulatives and maps. They add interactivity but do not promote
significant changes to how learning activities are designed. As we move
down the pyrmaid, we find apps which focus more on shifting learning itself
by promoting problem-solving, critical thinking, communication and
collaboration and creativity and innovation. They help promote more
student-centered and participatory learning and the transformation of
learning itself. 

 

This is not to say that there is not a place for apps at the top of the
pyramid. It is natural to work through the SAMR Model throughout a lesson
or unit or to spend some time on teaching styles such as lectures of demos.
Important, however, is that teachers ought to recognize that they should
work towards focusing more time and energy on learning engagements which
are in line with the lower end of the pyramid.  

 

This model was created as a Keynote presentation and recorded to explain it
in more detail. A link to this presentation can also be found in iCloud. I
would appreciate feedback from others on this model and how it could be
improved.

 

The full list of apps we are using can be found here

I like this. I see though (and my work with clients is about this) in many places a going much further than this. I think both leadership and management are every person's role. The biggest shift happening in remarkable workplaces and a necessity in the new world of work is that people management is a dead concept. See my definitions of leadership and management that have stood the test for two decades at http://www.ianberry.biz/tailored-leadership-mastery-programs/
