If our media was still an inward, analogue society of public service networks, Breaking Bad could never have been made, let alone exploited to global success and acclaim. Scandinavian dramas such as The Killing and The Bridge would never have become international hits, or remade across other borders.

How the brain pays attention

How the brain pays attention | Education+ | Scoop.it

"Members of Desimone’s lab are now studying how the brain shifts its focus between different types of sensory input, such as vision and hearing. They are also investigating whether it might be possible to train people to better focus their attention by controlling the brain interactions  involved in this process.

“You have to identify the basic neural mechanisms and do basic research studies, which sometimes generate ideas for things that could be of practical benefit,” Desimone says. “It’s too early to say whether this training is even going to work at all, but it’s something that we’re actively pursuing.”

Howard Rheingold's curator insight, April 15, 1:15 PM

Studies such as Nass et. al.'s "Cognitive Control in Media Multitaskers" have demonstrated on a general level that media multitaskers are actually rapidly task-switching and that the attentional costs of switching focus degrades efficiency in accomplishing individual tasks. But that research is just the beginning. Important to infotention is what is not yet known about how effective attentional training can be.

What If Kids Co-Created Customized Learning Pathways? | Education+ | Scoop.it
New tools are making it easier to customize learning for every student. Playlists, projects, and portfolios support big blocks, maker spaces, and flex schools. One thing I appreciate about the Christensen Institute definition of blended learning is that it stresses student agency by requiring "student control over time, place, path, and/or pace."

What if kids co-taught alongside and to teachers and school became a place where everyone learned, grew, flexed their minds, and discovered that great problems are never really solved, they just morph.
