  12. 12. A  few  facts….   •   At  birth,  a  baby’s  brain  contains  100  billion   neurons     •  At  birth  the  brain  is  25%  of  it’s  adult  weight;   by  age  2,  it  is  75%  of  it’s  adult  weight.     •  As  a  child  grows,  the  number  of  neurons   remains  rela?vely  stable,  but  each  cell  grows,   becoming  bigger  and  heavier.

  21. 21. Three Brains in One! The executive part of the brain manages attention, emotions, and behavior. It weaves together social, emotional, and intellectual capacities in order to help us reach our goals.! ! ! ! ! Pulling together feeling and thinking helps people reflect, plan, and evaluate.! ! Jane Healy, Your Child’s Growing Mind / Ellen Galinsky, Mind in the Making!
  22. 22. 22 Infant! Gazing! Study!
  23. 23. Synaptic Density From Rethinking the Brain: New Insights into Early Development by Rima Shore (NY: Families and Work Institute, 1997) Synaptic Density: Synapses are created with astonishing speed in the first three years of life. For the rest of the first decade, children’s brains have twice as many synapses as adults’ brains. (Drawing supplied by H.T. Chugani) !
  24. 24. Role of Experience! •  Repeated use strengthens brain connections! •  If connections are not used, they are “pruned” away! •  The brain “grows itself” for the environment it experiences! •  Most of this experience-based growth occurs in the cortex (the “executive brain”)!
  25. 25. Experiences that Strengthen Connections! •  Are frequent, regular, and predictable! •  Occur in the context of a warm, supportive relationship! •  Are associated with positive emotion (fun, excitement, humor, comfort)! •  Involve several senses! •  Are responsive to the child’s interests or initiative!
  26. 26. Environment! Welcoming! Warm! Safe! Stimulating! Joyful!
  27. 27. Ritual! Invites us ! Unites us! Involves senses! Activates memory! Embodies meaning! Eases transitions!
  28. 28. Repetition…Repetition…Repetition ! ! Promotes learning! Increases enjoyment! Creates a sense of safety!
  29. 29. SURPRISE! Alert – senses Focus – attention Activate – response Impress -- memory
  30. 30. Music Helps Children Develop! •  Physically! •  Mentally! •  Emotionally! •  Socially! •  Aesthetically! “The basic elements of the Listen – Like – Learn program are the basic elements of music, which are: singing, movement, rhythm and melody, and these elements can only be introduced successfully if, at the same time, the children are learning to listen” (Cass-Beggs 1986, 21).!
  31. 31. Musical experiences! • Trigger speech development! • Improve concentration! • Stimulate learning ! • Enrich vocabulary!
  32. 32. Movement Movement is responsible for physical! changes in the brain that can lead to! higher intelligence ! ! Movement provides an ! outlet for expression of! emotions!
  33. 33. Play! - Playing helps children cope with everyday pressures! - Social play strengthens and builds friendships and attachments! - Imaginative play develops creative problem solving skills! - Physical play helps children to develop gross and fine motor skills as well as balance and coordination.!
  34. 34. Hydra0on   •  Nerve  transmission  is  heavily  dependent   upon  water     •  Many  parts  of  the  brain  draw  much  of  their   energy  from  water   •  Drinking  water  keeps  the  brain  hydrated   which  boosts  learning  and  performance   •  Dehydra?on  results  in  difficulty  learning   and  poor  performance   •  Water  is  vital  to  energy  produc?on  in  cells,   in  overall  metabolism,  and   neurotransmission.    
  35. 35. Science tells us ! •  Gene expression is affected by environmental influences! ! •  Positive experiences contribute to the formation of well-functioning neural circuits! ! •  In cases of excessive childhood stress, chemicals are released in the brain that damage it’s developing architecture.!

  58. 58.

  59. 59. Joint  Media  Engagement   • The  New  Co-­‐viewing  (Joan  Ganz  Cooney   Center)   • Bringing  families  together  around  new   forms  of  media   • New  media  can  serve  as  a  focal  point  for   interac?on,  not  the  end  goal  
  60. 60. Parent  Learning   • Support  parents  to  be  their  child's  first  and   best  teacher   • To  do  that  they  have  to  learn  some  skills  and   gain  some  tools   • The  use  of  digital  media  can  support  THEIR   learning  process  
  61. 61.
