TEDxYMCAAcademy- Dr. Stuart Shanker- Self Regulation and Learning

Recent advances in developmental neuroscience are dramatically altering attitudes towards the possibility of maximizing the educational potential of every child. Scientists now understand that the better a child can self-regulate, the better she can rise to the challenge of mastering ever more complex skills and concepts. But what exactly is self-regulation, and why is it so important for learning? Dr Shanker speaks about the nature of self-regulation; the experiences that promote the development of self-regulation and the factors that can impede its development; and what teachers can do to enhance the self-regulation of each and every child in their classroom. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
