What we discovered was that there are a lot of parallels between face to face citizenship and digital citizenship, though the biggest differences are based upon the tools we use to communicate.

Sharpen your Reflexes using  the Reflex Math Platform | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it

Reflex is an online math game-based platform for Grades 2 and up, which aims to develop fluency in basic addition, subtraction, multiplication and division math facts. The goal of Reflex is helping students develop automaticity with basic math facts. Attaining this skill is of major importance to students, as research has shown that those who can automatically recall math facts are better at problem solving and can learn new math skills quicker and easier.

How does the brain react to virtual reality? Study by UCLA neuroscientists provides answers | Science Codex

How does the brain react to virtual reality? Study by UCLA neuroscientists provides answers | Science Codex | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it

UCLA neurophysicists have found that space-mapping neurons in the brain react differently to virtual reality than they do to real-world environments. Their findings could be significant for people who use virtual reality for gaming, military, commercial, scientific or other purposes.

 

"The pattern of activity in a brain region involved in spatial learning in the virtual world is completely different than when it processes activity in the real world," said Mayank Mehta, a UCLA professor of physics, neurology and neurobiology in the UCLA College and the study's senior author. "Since so many people are using virtual reality, it is important to understand why there are such big differences."

 

The study was published today in the journal Nature Neuroscience.

 

The scientists were studying the hippocampus, a region of the brain involved in diseases such as Alzheimer's, stroke, depression, schizophrenia, epilepsy and post-traumatic stress disorder. The hippocampus also plays an important role in forming new memories and creating mental maps of space. For example, when a person explores a room, hippocampal neurons become selectively active, providing a "cognitive map" of the environment.

 

The mechanisms by which the brain makes those cognitive maps remains a mystery, but neuroscientists have surmised that the hippocampus computes distances between the subject and surrounding landmarks, such as buildings and mountains. But in a real maze, other cues, such as smells and sounds, can also help the brain determine spaces and distances.

15+ Ways of Teaching Every Student to Code (Even Without a Computer) - Edutopia

15+ Ways of Teaching Every Student to Code (Even Without a Computer) - Edutopia | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it

"According to Code.org, 90 percent of U.S. schools are not teaching any computer science. Eyebrows have been raised this year as the U.K. passed a plan to educate every child how to code.

 

In my opinion, parents of every student in every school at every level should demand that all students be taught how to code. They don't need this skill because they'll all go into it as a career -- that isn't realistic -- but because it impacts every career in the 21st century world. Any country recognizing that will benefit in the long term. Here's how you can start."

IInteractive whiteboards indicate positive effects on students with special educational needs and promote a multi sensory style of learning. In this review paper we cope with the studies that explore the integration of IWBs in special education, in the last fourteen years (2000-2013). Research showed that interactive whiteboards are able to keep Special Education Needs students engaged in classroom facilities scaffolding their learning through technical and pedagogical interactivity. This technology has proven its value added to students with severe, complex, moderate learning disabilities, Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and on deaf, blind or physically impaired.

Link found between action video games and learning | Jacob Wittch | Columbia Chronicle | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it

Arguments against the excessive playing of video games have been pervasive, but all the hours spent in front of the TV playing “Call of Duty” instead of studying for finals may actually be productive.

 

A study published Oct. 15 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences reported that playing action video games could improve a person’s learning capabilities.

 

The study, conducted by Ohio State University psychology Professor Zhong-Lin Lu, enlisted a group of action video gamers and non-action video gamers. Three experiments tested participants’ abilities to perform a blotch test, which entails identifying the orientation of fuzzy blotches on a screen with varying levels of background noise.

 

The first experiment compared two groups and found that the action gamers and non-action gamers fared about the same.
