Teachers, schools, and society cannot assume that learning is the direct result of the curriculum or teacher behavior. Learning is an exceedingly complex activity.
This study demonstrates an epigenetic inheritance of a learned behavior that is transmitted across generations via the gametes whereby learning about a specific olfactory stimulus changes brain structure and the behavior of future generations. Specifically, Dias and Ressler show that behavioral response to olfactory fear conditioning in male parents is transmitted to their offspring via DNA methylation changes in the corresponding odorant recepto...

Ah +Keith Hamon - you must be wrong! Michael Gove said it was time to get rid of 'trendy' teaching ideas - and improve performance with more discipline, enforced by more detentions and the setting of more lines!

Adding complexity to the mix—and millions of data points are always complex—changes not only the ways we teach and learn but also the ways we conduct our scholarship.

Groups in organizations, including education I suspect, are smarter and make better decisions when they listen better, empathize more, and include more women—who typically listen and empathize better than men. This works for adults, but what about children? Maybe we should teach listening/empathizing skills for group work.
It’s about listening, empathy and having more women.

Hi Keith - we do just that - and not just for group work - but for helping students to bond as human beings and then to form friendship groups. We want them to feel like human beings in a collective endeavour - rather than individuals coming for an education fix - that they could get just as easy or easier on the web.
We have three weeks of simulations & role plays at the beginning of our course - and we also build in Image Mediated Dialogue and Topic Mediated discussions... collective reading and group participant observations of learning around the university - for group presentations - where the groups emerge from the friendship groups that have formed from the discussion groups...
By the end of the first term they are giving a Poster Exhibition of their Digital Me projects - which is a social as well as an academic event - and where they again get to know and empathise with their class mates. 
Student blogs talk about 'belonging', 'sharing' and making friends... and it is such a positive class!
Best,
Sandra

Insight into how creativity emerges from dialogic tension.
Despite the mythology around the idea of the lone genius, the famous partnership of John Lennon and Paul McCartney demonstrates the brilliance of creative pairs.
