Lesson plans are something that students should have a voice in designing. What does their learning mean to them?

New Research Sheds Light On How Children’s Brains Memorize Facts // Stanford Medicine News Center

New Research Sheds Light On How Children’s Brains Memorize Facts // Stanford Medicine News Center | Psychology | Scoop.it
By Erin Digitale"As children learn basic arithmetic, they gradually switch from solving problems by counting on their fingers to pulling facts from memory. The shift comes more easily for some kids than for others, but no one knows why.Now, new brain-imaging research gives the first evidence drawn from a longitudinal study to explain how the brain reorganizes itself as children learn math facts. A precisely orchestrated group of brain changes, many involving the memory center known as the hippocampus, are essential to the transformation, according to a study from the Stanford University School of Medicine. The results, published online Aug. 17 in Nature Neuroscience, explain brain reorganization during normal development of cognitive skills and will serve as a point of comparison for future studies of what goes awry in the brains of children with learning disabilities.“We wanted to understand how children acquire new knowledge, and determine why some children learn to retrieve facts from memory better than others,” said Vinod Menon, PhD, the Rachael L. and Walter F. Nichols, MD, Professor and professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences, and the senior author of the study. “This work provides insight into the dynamic changes that occur over the course of cognitive development in each child."The study also adds to prior research into the differences between how children’s and adults’ brains solve math problems. Children use certain brain regions, including the hippocampus and the prefrontal cortex, very differently from adults when the two groups are solving the same types of math problems, the study showed."...For full post, click on title above or here: https://med.stanford.edu/news/all-news/2014/08/new-research-sheds-light-on-how-childrens-brains-memorize-facts.html

I've recently re-launched Flourish Mentoring: It was originally aimed at children and in its new avatar is targeted at corporates. More scrutiny is definitely required by both corporates and schools while engaging with initiatives like this. Only time will tell whether we tilt to the other extreme though- throwing the baby with the bathwater.

Apparently, blind people can still actually "see" (you know that feeling when someone is watching you...), and it turns out that coffee is a protective factor against suicide. These are bad news for stalkers, and good news for coffee lovers!

Rumination: The Common Mental Habit that Creates Negative Cascade of Stress Symptoms

Rumination: The Common Mental Habit that Creates Negative Cascade of Stress Symptoms | Psychology | Scoop.it
Stuff goes wrong, right? There isn’t a fix for that. We live in an imperfect world. The question is, are you doing the one thing that has been scientifically proven to take things from bad to worse? The simple mental habit mentioned below has been shown to create the following symptoms: - Chronic stress - Reactive responses (as opposed to proactive responses) - Low quality relationships - Feelings of depression, isolation and despondence - Lack of sleep Recent research has pegged a mental habit – rumination – that guarantees low satisfaction, depressed mood and low productivity in people who do it consistently. The context of the study was a work environment, although it certainly applies in other areas of life.

I hope the picture in the article is not an example of a PLC. Do we just see PLCs? Can we feel them, hear them, sense them, etc?
