Lois Holzman - TEDxNavesink - Monmouth County New Jersey. Play Helps Us Grow at Any Age In this talk, Dr. Holzman documents the importance of play in our growth and development throughout our entire lives. Babies and toddlers play their way to growth. They learn how to talk, draw, dance, even think, through playing at what they’re not yet—performing it before they know it. Lucky for us non-babies, the mystery of exactly why and how play is developmental has been revealed and put to use with adults! Across the globe, from board rooms to therapy rooms, from hospital wards to refugee camps, “play revolutionaries” are helping people and communities embrace play as a way to keep developing. About Lois Holzman Lois Holzman is a passionate advocate for tools and practices that empower people to transform the alienation and passivity of our culture—and she’s found play to be one of the most powerful transformers.

The Path to Resilience. The more we learn about resilience in children, the more we begin to understand the powerful role that adults can play in fostering it, even in kids who face daunting challenges. As the latest science from the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard shows, resilience is fluid and compounding, nurtured by the essential fertilizer of an adult’s caring attention.

A new three-part video series produced by the center explores — in clear and simple terms — exactly how that happens, answering questions about why some children who face serious problems can cope and thrive. Resilience is a broad set of “capacities and skills and abilities that give people a sense of mastery and management of difficulty,” says center director Jack Shonkoff, one of a number of neuroscientists and early childhood experts who paint a picture of resilience as a quality that is built over time, resulting from the interactions of people and their environment.

No one can deny that is one of the most successful and iconic idea-sharing platforms online. Since 2006, TED Talk videos have racked up over 800 million views. And it’s no surprise these videos went viral; with names like Steve Jobs, Jane Goodall, Sergey Brin and Bill Clinton, the roster of TED speakers reads like a best-in-class review of today’s living scientists, educators and humanitarians.

And now, six years after uploading its first video, is innovating online education again. A new site, now provides a platform for teachers and students to share video lessons. Teachers can modify, or “flip”, the videos to make them more relevant to their own lessons and use the site’s test and project writing tools to measure comprehension.
