Episode 28: Educrystal Ball

Taking care of children by feeding them, protecting them, and loving them is not the same as preparing them for their future. American education has been through an evolutionary process; which is just a few centuries old and the quest is yet to be fulfilled. We forget, a century ago, attending school past age 12 was not mandatory, the classrooms were often filled with 50-60 kids of varying ages and demanding kids to recite and regurgitate facts was a standard practice. Forecasting the needs of tomorrow continues to be an enigma in spite of the rapidly evolving information technology age and serving the needs of all types of learners continues to be as opaque as ever. Today, my guest, Dr. Sam Goldstein, a clinical neuropsychologist, will discuss how to rethink educating self-sufficient students with Executive Function at the heart of learning.

  1. I tried to dins Sam’s tedx talk on app, but he is not there as speaker. Maybe that’s the problem it didn’t become viral. Please share this with him.

    I’m listening to all episodes from the first one, although my kids are 20, 27 and 30, but it is still amazing to me, to learn more about executive function. Thank you!

    I was raising them in different time, with much more time for family life and I spent many hours reading, playing and answering their questions. They have very well developed executive function and I believe that is also due to very strict house rules.

What did you think of this week's episode? Let me know!
