Gaming improves multitasking skills

Gaming improves multitasking skills | Academic Research, Methods, Tools, Publishing | Scoop.it

"Commercial companies have claimed for years that computer games can make the user smarter, but have been criticized for failing to show that improved skills in the game translate into better performance in daily life1. Now a study published this week in Nature2 — the one in which Linsey participated — convincingly shows that if a game is tailored to a precise cognitive deficit, in this case multitasking in older people, it can indeed be effective."

It is an argument that continues because it is relevant.

Howard Rheingold's curator insight, September 5, 2013 1:26 PM

The possibility that attentional practices can be trained through deliberate practice is fundamental to infotention. I chronicled a certain amount of research into this in Net Smart. Now the prestigious journal Nature has published a study that lends support to the claim that online games (this one is called "Neuroracer") can be used for attention training (in this case, helping older people improve their capacity to multitask.)


A lot of attention is focused these days on managing distraction and avoiding multitasking. But there are few lives, practices, professions, situations, in which it is even possible to completely eliminate multitasking. Knowing when not to multitask is essential, but knowing how to multitask more effectively is also essential.

[PDF] The paradox of classroom technology

[PDF] The paradox of classroom technology | Academic Research, Methods, Tools, Publishing | Scoop.it
Learners’ use of digital tools and other technology to support their learning in our K-12 systems continues to be sporadic and often not observed despite the proliferation of use outside of school. Based on an analysis of three years of direct classroom observations in K-12 schools across 39 states and 11 countries, AdvancED found there are still relatively few classrooms in which the use of digital tools and technology is a regular part of a student’s school experience. In more than half (52.7 percent) of classrooms direct observations show no evidence students are using technology to gather, evaluate, or use information for learning; two-thirds of classrooms show no evidence of students using technology to solve problems, conduct research, or to work collaboratively.
 
Trained and certified observers conduct classroom observations as a part of AdvancED’s continuous improvement process which could include STEM Certification, accreditation, readiness and/or diagnostic review. Each observation lasts a minimum of 20 minutes during which observers use the learner-centric eProve™ Effective Learning Environments Observation Tool® (eleot®) to gather data focused on the activities learners are engaged in, their discussions and interactions, resources they are using for learning, their behaviors and dispositions during the learning process, etc. Observers rate each of the 30 eleot items on a four-point scale where 4 = Very Evident, 3 = Evident, 2 = Somewhat Evident and 1 = Not Observed

While numerous surveys suggest that the pervasive use of tablets, smartphones, laptops and digital education content in the classroom is expanding and changing the role of teachers, the AdvancED study found little evidence of technology being used by students to strengthen learning in classrooms today.

Without a coherent and consistent theory to underpin learning, you risk each lesson or learning episode becoming a stand alone and random opportunity.

"A driving strategy that serves students–whether pursuing self-knowledge or academic content–is questioning. Questioning is useful as an assessment strategy, catalyst for inquiry, or “getting unstuck” tool. It can drive entire unit of instruction as an essential question. In other words, questions transcend content, floating somewhere between the students and their context."
