Debunk This: People Remember 10 Percent of What They Read - ATD (blog) | Continually Learning | Scoop.it
Will Thalheimer reminds L&D professionals that the most important thing we can do is be skeptical when we encounter “research” or evidence.
Debbie Allison's insight:

Twenty years ago my US History professor began teaching by explaining that he would NOT be teaching us how to memorize dates and facts in his courses. Instead he would teach us how to research, evaluate, analyze, and connect factual information that we could readily look up in a book. With all the sources of information available to us today, it is even more important that we teach students how to explain, apply, and analyze, rather than only remember (whether 10% or 90%)

Doing Math Can Literally Hurt Your Brain [STUDY]

Doing Math Can Literally Hurt Your Brain [STUDY] | Continually Learning | Scoop.it

Warning: Do not look at the image above if you have math anxiety. A new study from the University of Chicago found that, for people who get anxious at the idea of doing mathematics, just preparing to do a math problem can trigger activity in a part of your brain that registers physical pain.

Researchers studied 14 subjects who suffered from anxiety about doing math — but not generalized anxiety — in an fMRI machine that imaged their brain activity. When the subjects were asked to prepare to do a math problem, they showed significant activity in the posterior insula, an area deep in the brain that is associated with responding to threats and experiencing pain.

New To Leadership? If You Only Do One Thing, Do This

New To Leadership? If You Only Do One Thing, Do This | Continually Learning | Scoop.it

This one about what young leaders need to do to lead folks from older generations. Four recommendations are:

1) Be an active listener and learner

2) Get to know them on a personal level

3) Embrace differences

4) Earn respect by being less authoritative.

 

All four of these recommendations apply to anyone who is new to a leadership position, no matter what their age or circumstance. Basically, the recommendations all focus around one thing: permeability.
