Kids with ADHD must squirm to learn, study says

Kids with ADHD must squirm to learn, study says | Student Support | Scoop.it
Excessive movement common among children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder is actually vital to how they remember information and work out complex cognitive tasks, a new study shows.

It is not just kids with ADHD, but even normal kids that benefit from some movement in a class which lasts an hour or more. That doesn't mean that regular students squirm, but then there are certain drills, or accepted movements that are practised and followed in classes throughout the world. It is often all right to allow students to stand up, do an 'energiser' and then continue with their tasks. With kids having ADHD, we need to train ourselves as teachers to accept the idea of constant movement if it helps them without of course disturbing the rest of the class. In times when inclusion is the mantra in most of the progressive schools worldwide, it makes sense for teachers to be trained and in fact to encourage physical movement in children with learning disabilities.

The research sounds good so far, but a lot needs to change in our schools and colleges before we can implement personalized learning Widely.

The growing field of educational neuroscience, converging developmental psychology, cognitive science, and education, can help teachers and school leaders rethink how they approach assessments. While some of its initial findings merely support what educators have intuitively believed, it is also challenging many assumptions and providing new insight into best educational practices, especially regarding assessment.

This article defines mindfulness and provides quick summaries of 6 research studies that found a range of k-12 students benefited from mindfulness activities, weeks after the research study ended.


Plus, the article highlights six different activities you can use with your students: http://cft.vanderbilt.edu/guides-sub-pages/contemplative-pedagogy/

From the article:  "We now know that neuroplasticity allows us to make profound changes in the way  our bodies and minds function at any age. So helping students learn to train  their bodies and minds through the use of mindful awareness practices can make a  real and lasting difference."  Some interesting points raised (and how would things be different if we all paused 2 seconds to think before responding to someone?)

The basic cognitive skills needed by previous generations are no longer enough. Students in the conceptual age must also master the higher levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy and Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, including creation, metacognition and self-actualization.

“It will require an upgrade to our curriculum, new instructional methods and materials, a new profile of a global graduate and an open mind,” say Smith, Chavez and Seaman.

For ideas about how to re-create your classroom for the conceptual age, including potential classroom setups, blended learning models to mix and match, and a curriculum design process, take a look at the infographic

Maryellen Weimer, PhD:

 

Here’s a great resource: the Teaching Practices Inventory. It’s an inventory that lists and scores the extent to which research-based teaching practices are being used. It’s been developed for use in math and science courses, but researchers Carl Wieman and Sarah Gilbert suggest it can be used in engineering and social sciences courses, although they have not tested it there. I suspect it has an even wider application. Most of the items on the inventory are or could be practiced in most disciplines and programs
