These ideas have been percolating since I wrote my PhD in physics education: http://www.physics.usyd.edu.au/super/theses/PhD(Muller).pdf I have also discussed this topic with CGP Grey, whose view of the future of education differs significantly from mine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vsCAM17O-M I think it is instructive that each new technology has appeared to be so transformative.

Research in the Tung lab focuses on the intersection between behavior, social structure, and genes. The lab is particularly interested in how social environmental variables of known biodemographic importance, such as social status and social connectedness, feed back to influence gene regulation, population genetic structure, and individual fitness.

  • Your Brain's Creation Story: Connie Barlow and Michael Dowd teach evolutionary brain science

    Evolution has provisioned the human brain with four basic parts, reflecting our evolutionary ancestry: our so-called Reptilian Brain, Old Mammalian Brain, New Mammalian Brain, and Advanced (prefrontal cortex). Learning our brain's "creation story" helps us have compassion for ourselves and others, owing to the social, emotional, and substance challenges that ensue from "mismatched instincts" that are no longer in sync with today's cultural conditions. This understanding offers enormous practical assistance, too, in working through relational troubles, PTSD, and addictions to food, substances, internet porn, and romance novels. It offers special insight into the enormous challenges of adolescence (as the prefrontal cortex "rewires" for independence and the biological drive to find a mate) ...

After all they did revolutionize entertainment, yet failed to make significant inroads into the classroom. TV and video seem like a cheaper, scaled back film, but they too failed to live up to expectations. Now there is a glut of information and video on the internet so should we expect it to revolutionize education? My view is that it won't, for two reasons: 1. Technology is not inherently superior, animations over static graphics, videoed presentations over live lectures etc. and 2. Learning is inherently a social activity, motivated and encouraged by interactions with others. Filmed and edited by Pierce Cook Supported by Screen Australia's Skip Ahead program.

Evolutionary Perspectives on Educational Structures: The case for community charter schools Presentation Slides: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bx4_ymz03QlQLU9VWDVqWFVELXc/view?usp=sharing Schools across the world can achieve equal or higher learning outcomes among students while reducing the emotional burdens commonly associated with school. Accomplishing this requires a sociobiologically-grounded understanding of knowledge and learning, and thus requires significant renovation of current educational structures. Harnessing a contemporary understanding of evolved sociobiological learning systems in reconceptualizing our educational structures offers the opportunity to facilitate real learning, reduce mental distress in adolescents, and improve the health of local communities. Interestingly enough, small, Community Charter Schools (CCSs) already exhibit the early tendrils of more socio-cognitive approaches seeping into the broader educational system. Although charter schools take many forms, small-scale, place-based, experientially-oriented charter schools reflect more sociocognitively appropriate learning communities and provide educational environments more conducive to evolved human learning processes. In this presentation, we will examine some problematic social and psychological conditions that generally accompany orthodox primary and secondary educational institutions. These undesirable outcomes derive from a myriad of internal and external forces, yet there are indications that the actual structure of the educational system may play a significant role in facilitating these undesirable outcomes. We will then cover some possible explanations as to why the structure results in high emotional costs for learners. Next we will delve into the sociobiological and anthropological evolution of human learning systems. Our understanding of these elements will justify a more sociocognitive approach to education. After establishing a more sociocognitive framework for conceptualizing learning and education, we will move to covering the tenets of Human Scale Education (HSE) and Community Charter Schools. We will see how this contemporary educational movements, which advocate for small-scale, place-based, experientially-oriented learning, more fully complement the innate sociobiological learning capacities of the individual, resulting in high academic achievement without excessive emotional burden.

Jenny Tung is an Assistant Professor of Evolutionary Anthropology and Biology at Duke University and an affiliate of the Duke Population Research Institute. Jenny joined the Duke faculty in 2012 after completing her post-doctoral training at the University of Chicago Department of Human Genetics and her Ph.D. training in the Duke Biology department. Research in the Tung lab focuses on the intersection between behavior, social structure, and genes. The lab is particularly interested in how social environmental variables of known biodemographic importance, such as social status and social connectedness, feed back to influence gene regulation, population genetic structure, and individual fitness. We primarily ask these questions in socially complex non-human primates, which are natural models for human behavior, physiology, and demography. Currently, most of our work centers on a longitudinally studied population of wild baboons in Kenya (Tung co-directs the Amboseli Baboon Research Project) and captive rhesus macaques at the Yerkes National Primate Research Center.

Evolution has provisioned the human brain with four basic parts, reflecting our evolutionary ancestry: our so-called Reptilian Brain, Old Mammalian Brain, New Mammalian Brain, and Advanced (prefrontal cortex). Learning our brain's "creation story" helps us have compassion for ourselves and others, owing to the social, emotional, and substance challenges that ensue from "mismatched instincts" that are no longer in sync with today's cultural conditions. This understanding offers enormous practical assistance, too, in working through relational troubles, PTSD, and addictions to food, substances, internet porn, and romance novels. It offers special insight into the enormous challenges of adolescence (as the prefrontal cortex "rewires" for independence and the biological drive to find a mate) — and thus the importance of adult guidance and mentoring of youth. Barlow and Dowd introduce playful illustrations and terminology for the four parts of the brain: "Lizard Legacy" (Reptilian), "Furry Li'l Mammal" (Old Mammalian), "Monkey Mind" (New Mammalian neocortex), and "Higher Porpoise" (the newest brain add-on: the prefrontal cortex that gives us impulse control and the ability to commit to a higher purpose). Topics covered, linked to times: Inherited proclivities - 00:12 Reptilian Brain - 00:14 Old Mammalian Brain - 01:22 New Mammalian Brain (Monkey Mind) - 02:16 Advanced (prefrontal cortex) - 02:49 Mismatch theory (and cultural evolution) - 03:05 Substance Addictions (owing to mismatched instincts) - 04:05 Substance Addictions and Teen - 05:03 Fault v. responsibility (for moving beyond denial) - 5:33 Appreciation of ancient instincts for evoking compassion - 06:17 Making 12-step and other recovery groups more effective - 06:57 Codependence and the Old Mammalian Brain - 08:00 "Lizard Legacy, Furry Li'l Mammal, Monkey Mind, Higher Porpoise" - 08:45 Recovery programs (advantages of) - 09:13 "Witness" capacity in prefrontal cortex and its delay in maturation - 10:25 Hormones that affect mind and behavior throughout animal kingdom - 14:21 Universality of our evolved human nature and male/female differences- 14:53 Free will (new understanding of via evolutionary brain science) - 17:01 Practical uses of understanding our evolved quadrune brain - 17:27 Music: different brain components respond to different types - 17:57 What and when do we teach our kids about evolved brain? - 18:43 Evolutionary education in liberal churches can attract young families - 18: 56 Halsey (teen) story of awakening to evolutionary brain science - 19:36 Insight into a child's "meltdown" - 22:01 Child and teen fascinations for strengthening the prefrontal cortex - 22:40 Prefrontal cortex override of amygdala: pilot landing jet in Hudson River - 24:49 Elephant-and-rider metaphor (strengthening witness capacity) - 27:34 Integrity as trust, authenticity, responsibility, and service - 28:59 12-step programs as fostering integrity - 32:37 Useful practices when emotionally triggered and stressed - 33:16 PTSD story of how quadrune brain can help talking therapies - 36:25 Free will: intro to evolutionary understanding of - 41:10 Lust v. romantic attraction v. bonded commitment (Dr. Helen Fisher) - 42:03 Free will as choosing "environment" one consults in mulling over possibilities - 43:29 Emergence of senses, behaviors, free will - 44:29 Addiction to romance novels as female version of "porn" - 45:24 Addiction to pornography by males - 46:34 Worms and bees can get addicted to nicotine and cocaine - 46:56 Antidepressants, serotonin, and the downside for dopamine in romance - 47:42 Monogamy, prairie voles, vasopressin, and good daddies - 48:57 President Obama and his nicotine addiction - 49:33 Alcohol's attraction for teens in social interactions (and its dangers) - 49:56 Caring adults as the "prefrontal cortex" for teens - 52:36 Audience question: "engineering" flaws in human mind and body - 52:58 More resources: go to http://TheGreatStory.org - 53:40 Note: This video was recorded as part of a week-long series of presentations by Connie Barlow and Michael Dowd.
