Today we woke again with some thunder. Sorry about the video technical difficulties. We are having some trouble uploading large files with slow connections. To be expected here in the rooftop of the world. This morning Adele Diamond spoke about the developmental cognitive neurosciences and how best to develop executive control (which i can speak about a little later) in children using curriculum that are focused on role playing, creativity, and simple storytelling. There was fruitful dialogue with His Holiness in discussing the benefits of the play and monastic educational training in debate and memorization techniques. It was all agreed that such training would be of benefit to executive control.
