Bring Researcher in the Center | People would rather be electrically shocked than left alone with their thoughts | ciberpocket | Scoop.it

At some point today you will disengage from the rest of the world and just think. It could happen any number of ways: if your mind wanders from work, while you’re sitting in traffic, or if you just take a quiet moment to reflect. But as frequently as we drift into our own thoughts, a new study suggests that many of us don’t like it. In fact, some people even prefer an electric shock to being left alone with their minds.

World Cup chants reveal true state of U.S.-German relations | ciberpocket | Scoop.it
One of the most telling geopolitical moments of the World Cup came during the Germany-U.S. game. As American fans chanted “U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!” the Germans countered with, “N-S-A! N-S-A! N-S-A!” In the weeks since, relations have crumbled.

Students Benefit from Learning That Intelligence Is Not Fixed | ciberpocket | Scoop.it
Teaching students that intelligence can grow and blossom with effort – rather than being a fixed trait they’re just born with – is gaining traction in progressive education circles. And new research from Stanford is helping to build the case that nurturing a “growth mindset” can help many kids understand their true potential.

5 successful strategies to block the career of female scientists with gender policy | smartsciencecareer blog | ciberpocket | Scoop.it

After several decades of fighting for equal rights for women in academia there are new rules and guidelines on the European and national level to support the career of women in science. One strategy is to aim for an equal distribution of genders in all academic settings. Surprisingly, these important strategies for gender equality have some unwanted side-effects which impair specifically the careers of young female scientists.

“A couple of people said very clearly, ‘Are you sure they should watch this movie, won't they learn to take over the world?,’” said Myrtle Beach Safari Owner Bhagavan Antle, according to the U.K.’s The Daily Mail. “There were several people actually concerned about that.”

Teaching resources for special needs educators – orchestra sounds.

Teaching resources for special needs educators – orchestra sounds. | ciberpocket | Scoop.it

In our travels with Skoog we talk to educators from around the world across many different disciplines. Within the field of SEN or Special Ed one question that is often asked in relation to sensory work is:

“Can I have different instruments on different sides?”


Different sounds on different sides?


The answer is, “Yes you can, when using the sampling feature you can load different samples onto different sides”


This can be used to support more experiential work listening to different instruments and learning to discriminate between the types of sound and ‘how’ they are different. In more advanced performance applications it may be triggering or manipulating samples of different instruments to contribute to a particular composition or performance.

Making music with Autistic Kids, advice and tips.

Making music with Autistic Kids, advice and tips. | ciberpocket | Scoop.it

When developing Skoog young people with autism were one of the key groups we worked with.  The impact of active music creation for these pupils was a powerful driver in our work and one thing that became very clear was that we needed to try and create tools to support them effectively in making their own music.

 

And this can mean we need to let go of what we think 'should be' happening and let the students do what they want to, what they feel, as Dr John Bidduplh says, "In order to engage musically with people on the autistic spectrum we might have to suspend or even extend our own assumptions about what music really is, how sound is controlled and modified to make music compositions and performances etc."
