Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology | Linking Literacy, Research, and Practice | Scoop.it

Technology is way too often given a bad rap by administrators and educators as a distraction or a hazard for students.  When technology is integrated intentionally with foresight and with intention of addressing specific growth-oriented goals, it increases the potential to help students learn, develop, and grow in unique ways.  It can be used to help address the needs as described by Maslow.

This Is Your Brain On Games - InformED | Linking Literacy, Research, and Practice | Scoop.it

"The past year has illuminated many things about the way the brain works, including how it responds to games. It is now erroneous to conflate ten hours of Super Mario with minor head trauma. We know that you won’t go blind if you’re looking for coins and bananas and rings on a screen all day. Your motivation and attention span will remain intact no matter what level you reach in Skyrim. In fact, the very latest science is telling us the exact opposite of what we thought all along: video games actually increase brain function."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 29, 9:35 PM

Brain research now shows that action video games impact "brain plasticity, learning, attention, and vision." What does this mean? That video games may make the brain bigger, as in increasing brain volume.

Along with information on how video games may make the brain "bigger, better, faster, stronger" the post also shares information on "using the neuroscience of games to boost learning" and "how to ditch your biases."

A number of studies are quoted in the post with links to additional information.

16 Habits of Mind Essential for 21st Century Learners ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

16 Habits of Mind Essential for 21st Century Learners ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Linking Literacy, Research, and Practice | Scoop.it

Below are 16 habits of mind our students need to develop in order to guarantee an optimal learning experience. These are cognitive processes that work at an analytic level to enhance one's mental and conceptual capacities in  analysing and understanding things. Different as they are, these mind habits when taken together constitute the essence of a growth mindset needed for a balanced intellectual, social and physical development of the individual.

The 16 habits of mind is a work realized by Habitsofmind.org which is a very good platform that provides a wide variety of teaching materials and resources for teachers and educators. The chart  is not really visually enhanced and I found it hard to peruse it so I went ahead and prepared this paraphrased  script for you.

Helicopter Parenting: Good For Your Pets, Bad For Your Kids

Helicopter Parenting: Good For Your Pets, Bad For Your Kids | Linking Literacy, Research, and Practice | Scoop.it

                   "Helicopter the one on the left, not the right."

 

"If you want to make your children neurotic, clinginess and overprotectiveness on your part - helicopter parenting - is the way to go.

"Assuming you don't want to cause that, it is still okay to hover over your dogs and cats, according to an analysis of pet owners by psychologists at U.C. Berkeley and California State University, East Bay.

"They used an online survey of more than 1,000 pet owners nationwide to analyze the key personality traits and nurturing styles of people who identified as a "cat person," a "dog person," "both" or "neither."  Those who expressed the greatest affection for their pets were also the most conscientious and neurotic, suggesting that the qualities that work for domesticated canine and feline companions, who tend to require lifelong parenting, make for overbearing parents."

 

Summary from BrainHQ Brain Fitness News: January 2015

Neurotic People Make the Best Pet Owners 
Psychologists at UC Berkeley and Cal State East Bay recently conducted a study of pet owners, and found that those who had the most “neurotic” tendencies were also the most conscientious when it came to their pets’ happiness and well-being. They suggest that if your tendency is to be a “helicopter parent,” it will work out much better for your pets than for your (human) children.
