es interesante conocer acerca del cerebro humano y sus funciones a profundidad, el conocimiento humano no tiene limites y menos en el campo de la ciencia y los avances

Music, music, music!! I will trust the current researchers at two well-known universities. www.brainvolts.northwestern.edu/‎

Just look at all the most recent findings ranging all the way from pre-schoolers to the elderly. Let's read about their research, their conclusions, and then go practice our instruments of choice! :-)

Pete Etchells and Chris Chambers: Which is more dangerous, technology changing our brains or scientists mutating into priests?
Pierre Levy's insight:

It sounds terrifying. Baroness Susan Greenfield has proclaimed that "Facebook Home could change our brains". Cue visions from Stephen King's horror novel Cell, in which anyone using a phone instantaneously morphs into a ravenous zombie.

5 Instructional Design tips to enhance Metacognition in eLearning

5 Instructional Design tips to enhance Metacognition in eLearning | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it

An empowered learner is a successful learner. Not only do they have the confidence they need to solve problems autonomously, but they are active participants who are motivated and inspired to learn. One of the most effective ways to empower your online learners is to incorporate metacognition into your eLearning strategy. In this article, I’ll share 5 tips on how to enhance metacognition in eLearning.


Metacognition involves not just having knowledge and being able to cognitively process information, but being able to control these mental processes. This typically involves modification, monitoring, and organization of the information in order to apply it in real world settings. Metacognition also focuses on analyzing a challenge or task to determine which problem solving approach would be the most effective.


One of the most significant advantages of using metacognition in eLearning is that it encourages learners to become more independent and empowered. They must identify their strengths and weaknesses, and fine tune their study, organization, problem-solving, and communication skills. In this article, I’ll delve into the categories of metacognition, its best practices, and I’ll share 5 tips that will help you use metacognition in eLearning.

Using games as an educational tool provides opportunities for deeper learning

Using games as an educational tool provides opportunities for deeper learning | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it
Interaction and opportunities to make choices are among the virtues of the new generation of educational games, experts say.
Pierre Levy's insight:

If indeed humans think immeasurably better as part of a network than on their own, then games are an obvious terrain in which to set minds free and let them wander around, interacting with whatever or whomever they encounter. The system of points, badges, rewards and leaderboards featured in most massively multiplayer online (MMO) games can be replicated in an educational context, experts say, to account for people's different motivations and needs for interaction or self-expression.
