Kids And Screen Time: What Does The Research Say?

Kids And Screen Time: What Does The Research Say? | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it

Kids read emotions better after spending several days without electronic media, according to new research.

 

The UCLA researchers studied two groups of sixth-graders from a Southern California public school. One group was sent to the Pali Institute, an outdoor education camp in Running Springs, Calif., where the kids had no access to electronic devices. For the other group, it was life as usual.

 

At the beginning and end of the five-day study period, both groups of kids were shown images of nearly 50 faces and asked to identify the feelings being modeled. Researchers found that the students who went to camp scored significantly higher when it came to reading facial emotions or other nonverbal cues than the students who continued to have access to their media devices.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

A worthwhile read. What are the challenges parents and teachers face as a result? Digital technology is here, but what can we do to help work with it mindfully?

As the comments say, there were too many variables so this study is not very reliable.  However, it does seem enough to warrant more and better studies.  -Lon

What do we share online? This is how our brains decide!

Studies show that four basic emotions combine to create our experiences. Here's what that means for the way content is shared online.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

It is an interesting article with neuroscience research involved. It is about the emotional suggestions that our brain makes leading us to share on the Internet. The challenge might be is contributions become Technique and focused on being positive in a contrived way. What does it mean in education?

What a terrific summary article this is about emotions in marketing. It covers not only why emotions work, the author Courtney Seiter also talks about WHICH emotions get shared and why.


Seiter covers happiness, sadness, fear, plus anger and the types of reactions each creates. I also like the charts and graphics she uses to make her points. 


And what I think is really cool is how she shares recent research from IPA dataBANK who validated -- once again -- that pure emotional content wins out over a combination of rational and emotional.


So check out the article. It is well done. If you want to gain mastery over crafting stories with specific emotional content, then this post will bring a lot of clarity to your work.

Interessant artikel over waarom mensen dingen delen via internet. Zowel positieve als negatieve emoties kunnen zorgen voor het virale effect. De woede die Wilde Geert momenteel en regelmatig effectief oproept, helpt om zijn dubieuze boodschap verder te verspreiden. Daar komt waarschijnlijk ook het ontzag vandaan als mensen zeggen: "Hij durft het toch maar te zeggen'. Dat zijn mensen, Nederlanders, die hun verstand overslaan, de emotie gaat voor. MInder mensen dan maar? Dat is een heel ander pleidooi.
