Child Development, Learning & Teaching, Self-Efficacy & Agency, Updates | January 10, 2017

Coming of Age with Mindfulness

Child Development, Neuroscience, Self-Efficacy & Agency | January 26, 2016

Early adolescence (the 11-14 year old) is characterized by rapid physiological and psychological changes. Challenging children socially and physically helps to sort out the paradox between their inner life and their new-found need for sovereignty in their outer world.

Childhood is a Distinct Time

Child Development, Engaging the Senses, Featured, Neuroscience | September 17, 2014

Children are not miniature adults; they have a unique set of needs for healthy development. Only when children are engaged with relevant and developmentally appropriate activities can developmental milestones be reached and real learning occur.

Learning is Acting in New Ways

Engaging the Senses, Featured, Learning & Teaching, Neuroscience | August 6, 2014

Acting or behaving in new ways can support healthy brain development and influence learning. Children experience the world through the senses; then interpret those experiences through the intellectual and emotional body, which leads to action.

Learning is Physiological, and Happens in the Body

Child Development, Engaging the Senses, Featured, Learning & Teaching, Neuroscience | July 6, 2014

Self-Efficacy or Self-Esteem?

Child Development, Self-Efficacy & Agency | June 6, 2014

Self-efficacy is the belief that we can successfully impact our world. Unlike self-esteem, which is concerned with judgments of self-worth, self-efficacy is concerned with judgments of personal capability.

New Education Paradigm

Engaging the Senses, Featured, Learning & Teaching | June 1, 2014

Our country’s current school system remains locked into an education paradigm that is no longer relevant for our time. At the core of the problem is that learning has been about accumulating information, rote information, fragmented subject matter, and irrelevant testing methods often unrelated to a child’s developmental needs.

Athletes know the importance of ‘warming up’ before any physical activity, both to prevent injury and to prepare for optimal performance. This warm up activity focuses the internal warmth and rising energy into the task at hand. The muscles, organs and brain become more alert, and working in sync with each other, are ready for learning.
