Lera Boroditsky: How language shapes the way we think | TED Talk

Lera Boroditsky: How language shapes the way we think | TED Talk | GLOBAL GLEANINGS: Culling Content on Global Education, Diversity, Environmental Stewardship, and Service. | Scoop.it
There are about 7,000 languages spoken around the world -- and they all have different sounds, vocabularies and structures. But do they shape the way we think? Cognitive scientist Lera Boroditsky shares examples of language -- from an Aboriginal community in Australia that uses cardinal directions instead of left and right to the multiple words for blue in Russian -- that suggest the answer is a resounding yes. "The beauty of linguistic diversity is that it reveals to us just how ingenious and how flexible the human mind is," Boroditsky says. "Human minds have invented not one cognitive universe, but 7,000."

You probably already know that as an educator, you will be constantly challenged to examine your own cultural beliefs, values and biases. While you are in the process of doing this, you are also in the perfect position to start learning about other cultures. Researchers have theorized that diverse cultures show common patterns of thought and behavior. If you want to explore these cognitive and behavioral patterns, you must be willing to spend some time reading about and observing the practices of various cultural groups that you will be dealing with in the classroom.

Schools Are Missing What Matters About Learning - The Atlantic

Schools Are Missing What Matters About Learning - The Atlantic | GLOBAL GLEANINGS: Culling Content on Global Education, Diversity, Environmental Stewardship, and Service. | Scoop.it
When Orville Wright, of the Wright brothers fame, was told by a friend that he and his brother would always be an example of how far someone can go in life with no special advantages, he emphatically responded, “to say we had no special advantages … the greatest thing in our favor was growing up in a family where there was always much encouragement to intellectual curiosity.”

The power of curiosity to contribute not only to high achievement, but also to a fulfilling existence, cannot be emphasized enough. Curiosity can be defined as “the recognition, pursuit, and intense desire to explore, novel, challenging, and uncertain events.” In recent years, curiosity has been linked to happiness, creativity, satisfying intimate relationships, increased personal growth after traumatic experiences, and increased meaning in life. In the school context, conceptualized as a “character strength,” curiosity has also received heightened research attention. Having a “hungry mind” has been shown to be a core determinant of academic achievement, rivaling the prediction power of IQ.
