The Science of Creativity | Alyssa Dominique Nucaro | TEDxMemphis [Video]

Traditionally, schools use very concrete pedagogies and approaches to teaching children, but we see this more than ever in low-income communities due to their classification as high-need areas. Teachers are pressured to have their students meet certain achievement scores that directly affect their value as an effective educator. This pressure to achieve has taken art, poetry, creative writing, and exploration out of curriculum, which creates less equitable experiences that hinder students in these areas. What makes data valid? A number? Or an actual experience allowed to be expressed in a way other than words? Alyssa Dominique Nucaro believes that educators need to shift the way they think about how students accumulate knowledge as a first step to changing the education system. Alyssa Dominique Nucaro is a ten-year public school educator in Memphis, TN. She is a proud PhD candidate at the University of Memphis and a 2019 recipient of the New Memphis Educator of Excellence Award. Outside of her time in education, she is an author, researcher, and poet. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

How to know what you really want | Luke Burgis | Big Think [Video]

How to know what you really want, with Luke BurgisSubscribe to Big Think on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/c/bigthink Up next The ugly psychology behind scapegoating | Luke Burgis https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLa0zqShCcw There are two kinds of desire, thin and thick. Thick desires are like layers of rock that have been built up throughout the course of our lives. These are desires that can be shaped and cultivated through models like our parents and people that we admire as children. But at some level, they’re related to the core of who we are. They can be related to perennial human truths: beauty, goodness, human dignity. Thin desires are highly mimetic (imitative) and ephemeral desires. They’re the things that can be here today, gone tomorrow. Thin desires are subject to the winds of mimetic change, because they’re not rooted in a layer of ourselves that’s been built up over time. They are like a layer of leaves that’s sitting on top of layers of rock. Those thin desires are blown away with a light gust of wind. A new model comes into our life; the old desires are gone. All of a sudden we want something else. In the stream of daily life, we’re pushed and pulled in a million different directions. And if we don’t extract ourselves and find time for recollection, we won’t be able to listen to our lives, to listen to others, and to understand the way that our relationships and our desires are growing and emerging. We’ll be surprised if five or ten years from now, we’ve pursued desires that have led us to a place that we really may not have wanted to go. Listening is critical to the transformation.

The ugly psychology behind scapegoating | Luke Burgis | Big Think [Video]

The ugly psychology behind scapegoating, with Luke Burgis Subscribe to Big Think on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/c/bigthinkUp next How to learn from failure and quit the blame game | Alisa Cohn | Big Think https://youtu.be/BMRq38ECmFc Did you know that our desires are not entirely our own? Desires are imitated from the first moment we are born. Our desires form from what our parents, friends, and significant others want in life. Now placed in a group, large or small, these imitative desires are even more powerful. These transferred desires within a group do create cohesion, but they’re also the heart of where scapegoats are born.A scapegoat is someone outside of your group who also stands out from the social norm. The group then uses these scapegoats to transfer blame and negative emotions because they do not share the desires of the group. This blame, negative emotion, or fundamental truth is something the group does not want to acknowledge internally, so the blame is transferred to the scapegoat. In an instant, the problems of the group are gone because of the transfer of blame onto the scapegoat. Since scapegoats are identified as the root cause of the problem, they create a sense of relief, healing, and even protection for the group.Read the video transcript: https://bigthink.com/videos/scapegoat———————————————————————————- About Luke Burgis: Luke Burgis has co-created and led four companies in wellness, consumer products, and technology.

Devil’s Advocate: Why worry about fascism? | Jason Stanley | Big Think [Video]

Devil’s Advocate: Why worry about fascism? with Jason StanleySubscribe to Big Think on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/c/bigthink Up next: The 10 tactics of fascism https://youtu.be/CpCKkWMbmXU Fascism is a very particular ideological structure. The first pillar is the Mythic Past. Then there’s Propaganda. Anti-intellectualism. Unreality. Hierarchy. Victimhood. Law and order. Sexual anxiety. Sodom and Gomorrah. And then finally, Arbeit macht frei- ‘work shall make you free.’ Each of these elements taken in and of itself, is not fascist. You can think about these individual elements in isolation. When it comes to these fascist tactics, people often ask, “Why do you need to worry about it. There’s lots of tactics people use to win power. Why worry about these in particular?”Jason Stanley’s response is to say that fascist politics wears down democracy. Even if it doesn’t result in a fascist regime, it creates the conditions for itself. Fascist politics, it’s a politics of fear. So even if we don’t get a fascist regime in the end, we destroy the basis of democracy.
