Natural born learners : our incredible capacity to learn and how we can harness it
Beard, Alex, author
London : Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 2018
Introduction: A tale of two academies -- Part one: Thinking anew (1. Artificial intelligence: beware geeks bearing gifts ; 2. Born to learn: taking baby steps ; 3. Brain gains: going with the flow) -- Part two: Doing better (4. Just do it: cradle to career ; 5. Creation: meet your makers ; 6. Class act: masters of the learniverse) -- Part three: Taking care (7. Big data: the examined life ; 8. True grit: character-building stuff ; 9. Mind control: rebels with a cause) -- Part four: Coda (10. Fail better: open source) -- Afterword: A learning revolution)

Our education predicts how much we'll earn, how content we will be, even how long we'll live. But for all its importance, learning has lost touch with human progress. We live in an information age, work in a knowledge economy, yet our schools are relics of an industrial age. In Natural Born Learners, education insider Alex Beard takes us on a dazzling tour of the future of learning to show how we can - and why we must - do better. Tackling everything from artificial intelligence to our growing understanding of the infant brain, from the roots of creativity to the way classrooms can be unwitting engines of extremism, Beard leads us from the crowded corridors of a London comprehensive to the high-tech halls of Silicon Valley, through the exam factories of South Korea to the inclusive classrooms of Finland to reveal that today we stand on the cusp of a learning revolution.

The reading mind : a cognitive approach to understanding how the mind reads
Willingham, Daniel T., author
San Francisco, CA : Jossey-Bass, a Wiley brand, [2017]
On your marks -- Sound it out -- Reading at a glance -- Words, words, words -- Reading comprehension -- Becoming a reader -- Reading after the digital revolution.

Stop for a moment and wonder: what's happening in your brain right now--as you read this paragraph? How much do you know about the innumerable and amazing connections that your mind is making as you, in a flash, make sense of this request? Why does it matter? The Reading Mind is a brilliant, beautifully crafted, and accessible exploration of arguably life's most important skill: reading. Daniel T. Willingham, the bestselling author of Why Don't Students Like School?, offers a perspective that is rooted in contemporary cognitive research. He deftly describes the incredibly complex and nearly instantaneous series of events that occur from the moment a child sees a single letter to the time they finish reading. The Reading Mind explains the fascinating journey from seeing letters, then words, sentences, and so on, with the author highlighting each step along the way. This resource covers every aspect of reading, starting with two fundamental processes: reading by sight and reading by sound. It also addresses reading comprehension at all levels, from reading for understanding at early levels to inferring deeper meaning from texts and novels in high school. The author also considers the undeniable connection between reading and writing, as well as the important role of motivation as it relates to reading. Finally, as a cutting-edge researcher, Willingham tackles the intersection of our rapidly changing technology and its effects on learning to read and reading. Every teacher, reading specialist, literacy coach, and school administrator will find this book invaluable. Understanding the fascinating science behind the magic of reading is essential for every educator. Indeed, every "reader" will be captivated by the dynamic but invisible workings of their own minds. -- Provided by publisher.

Closing the Native educational achievement gap by addressing neurobiological deficits in AI/AN students and their causes in early childhood through insurgent pedagogy and mental health care
Rose, Quinn author
2018
"Despite the United States devoting significant budgetary and legislative allotments to improving AI/AN education in the late twentieth and early twenty-first century, the fundamental education gap between these students and their non-Native peers persists. It remains because the programs in place do not sufficiently address the non-cognitive deficits among this group of teens that have resulted from disproportionately high exposure to adverse childhood experiences, systemic ethnic discrimination causing health problems and detrimental epigenetic markers, and high maternal cortisol levels. These deep-seated issues are responsible for the high rates of depression and attempted suicide among AI/AN teens, in-school discipline and suspension, and high incarceration rates in juvenile detention facilities. The current funding and programming primarily target the visible symptoms of these issues rather than the root problems. As long as funding, research, and programming fail to address the non-cognitive impairments common among AI/AN youth and systemic discrimination making them transgenerational and cyclical, the U. S. government will not be able to close this achievement gap. The primary research attempting to aid children with traumatic backgrounds and their families in developing non-cognitive skills has focused almost exclusively on urban areas, and not at all on AI/AN communities. This research has revealed that mental health care and early-childhood parenting support can help mitigate the effects of poverty and comorbid traumas on children's non-cognitive development. To apply this research effectively to the experiences and needs of AI/AN teens, we must design programs focused on culturally competent teaching, emphasizing emotional regulation and support for academic risk-taking which can help remediate non-cognitive neurobiological deficits for students who have already been affected. This work will require the combination of educational data, anthropological and sociological research, psychological research and methodology, and educational/mental health care philosophy in an effort to identify the path forward for AI/AN communities and the United States government. In addition, we must address the mental health care needs of parents and teens to prevent transgenerational trauma from persisting."
