PLOS ONE: Who Multi-Tasks and Why? Multi-Tasking Ability, Perceived Multi-Tasking Ability, Impulsivity, and Sensation Seeking

PLOS ONE: Who Multi-Tasks and Why? Multi-Tasking Ability, Perceived Multi-Tasking Ability, Impulsivity, and Sensation Seeking | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it

Abstract

"The present study examined the relationship between personality and individual differences in multi-tasking ability. Participants enrolled at the University of Utah completed measures of multi-tasking activity, perceived multi-tasking ability, impulsivity, and sensation seeking. In addition, they performed the Operation Span in order to assess their executive control and actual multi-tasking ability. The findings indicate that the persons who are most capable of multi-tasking effectively are not the persons who are most likely to engage in multiple tasks simultaneously. To the contrary, multi-tasking activity as measured by the Media Multitasking Inventory and self-reported cell phone usage while driving were negatively correlated with actual multi-tasking ability. Multi-tasking was positively correlated with participants’ perceived ability to multi-task ability which was found to be significantly inflated. Participants with a strong approach orientation and a weak avoidance orientation – high levels of impulsivity and sensation seeking – reported greater multi-tasking behavior. Finally, the findings suggest that people often engage in multi-tasking because they are less able to block out distractions and focus on a singular task. Participants with less executive control - low scorers on the Operation Span task and persons high in impulsivity - tended to report higher levels of multi-tasking activity."

Summary? If you think you're a good multitasker, you're probably not.

Adquiere una nueva perspectiva

Adquiere una nueva perspectiva | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it
por Juan Sebastian Celis Maya - En respuesta a los desafíos de la vida, es fácil en ocasiones ver el mundo desde una perspectiva de supervivencia, pues así como los animales deben luchar por sobrevivir, nosotros como seres humanos, luchamos por sobrevivir en diferentes ámbitos de la vida, ya sean laborales, afectivos, financieros, académicos… etc. Es importante destacar entonces, que bajo ésta perspectiva, se ve el mundo de manera más individualista, sin tener en cuenta que las demás person

How to use Infographics as multimodal learning tools

How to use Infographics as multimodal learning tools | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it
People don’t all learn the same way. Teachers know this, and that’s why multimodal learning methods are an essential part of any teacher’s toolkit.Venggage

Responding to the changing linguistic landscape caused by digital media and communication, many teachers are leveraging the multimodal learning opportunities offered by mixed media in the classroom.

Infographics combine both text and image, making them tools able to engage both verbal and visual learning styles. The combination of verbal and visual learning styles has been shown to ultimately increase students’ retention of basic skills by 21% and higher order skills by 20%. Having students research, conceptualize and create infographics in groups also addresses verbal and participatory approaches.

With that in mind, here are seven ways to use infographics as multimodal learning tools in the classroom
