No doubt adults, children and even babies – all of us have the ability to grow and adapt to daily challenges in life. The fact is the twenty-first century promises to be “the century of brain.” The above technologies and other advances will enable us to shed light on the problems of the human mind. The time has come for us to apply the results of brain science research to improving education as a social technology. There is “art of changing the brain” that comes down to some things that we have always known. Practice and meaning are the most important parts of this art, but of course the student will not practice in a meaningful way unless she cares. Ultimately it is the learner that is in control. The teacher can arrange the conditions and the challenges in ways that engage the learner, but still we must have faith in learning itself.
“Three principles from brain research: emotional safety, appropriate challenges, and self constructed meaning suggest that a one-size-fits-all approach to classroom instruction teaching is ineffective for most students and harmful to some.”
There are no two children are alike. An enriched environment for one is not necessarily enriched for another.
No two children learn in the identical way.
In the classroom we should teach children to think for themselves.
One way is to group children so they are talking to each other, they are asking questions of each other, they are learning to be teachers. One of the most important concepts for a 5 year old to know is that he or she can teach because you have to understand something to teach it.”

I’m sure you know pretty well that muscle exercises is “good for you.” It benefits every part of the body, including the mind. It causes the body to produce endorphins, chemicals that can help a person to feel more peaceful and happy. It can help some people sleep better and more and more different important things allowing you to stay healthy and vitality.You may ask why?
Dont you know that you have more than 600 muscles in your body? They help you to do everything from pumping blood throughout your body to helping you lift your heavy backpack. You control some of your muscles, while others — like your heart — do their jobs without you thinking about them at all. If you take anatomic muscle map it will help you to learn that for instance there are three different types of muscles type of muscles.
Smooth muscles — sometimes also called involuntary muscles, your brain and body tell them what to do without you even thinking about it. You can’t use your smooth muscles to make a muscle in your arm or jump into the air. But smooth muscles are at work all over your body. In your stomach and digestive system, they contract (tighten up) and relax to allow food to make its journey through the body. Your smooth muscles come in handy if you’re sick and you need to throw up. The muscles push the food back out of the stomach so it comes up through the esophagus (say: ih-sah-fuh-gus) and out of the mouth.
Smooth muscles are also found in your bladder. When they’re relaxed, they allow you to hold in urine (pee) until you can get to the bathroom. Then they contract so that you can push the urine out. These muscles are also in a woman’s uterus, which is where a baby develops. There they help to push the baby out of the mother’s body when it’s time to be born.
The muscle makes up the heart and called cardiac muscle. It is also known as the myocardium (say: my-uh-kar-dee-um). The thick muscles of the heart contract to pump blood out and then relax to let blood back in after it has circulated through the body. Just like smooth muscle, cardiac muscle works all by itself with no help from you. A special group of cells within the heart are known as the pacemaker of the heart because it controls the heartbeat.
Skeletal Muscles, sometimes called striated (say: stry-ay-tud) muscle because the light and dark parts of the muscle fibers make them look striped (striated is a fancy word meaning striped).
Skeletal muscles are voluntary muscles, which means you can control what they do. Your leg won’t bend to kick the soccer ball unless you want it to. These muscles help to make up the musculoskeletal system — the combination of your muscles and your skeleton, or bones.
It’s very interesting to learn to feel your own body, isn’t it?
The recent fast spreading of of the H1N1 virus, or Swine Flu, has raised the awareness level and children, spending a large portion of time daily in school, have higher risk to get the illness. There fore precautionary and preventive measures in schools need to be stronger than enywhere else. No doubt parents need to be especially aware of any health changes in their children, and address any new issues in a timely fashion with a health care professional besides that there are a lots of material they have to learn about swine flu signs and symptoms, how it’s transmitted, medicines to treat it, steps people can take to protect themselves from it, and what to do in case they become ill. One should not forget that strong immune system strengthen with receiving adequate rest and nutrition on a daily basis, frequent hand-washing, covering their mouths when they cough or sneeze and applying due diligence in a crowded areas as well play a great role in preventing the spread.
