Do PE classes affect adult exercise?

Do PE classes affect adult exercise? | elearning, | Scoop.it
New research is investigating a possible connection between memories of physical activity at school and the amount of exercise taken in adult life.
Terri Rice's insight:

This is an article from the UK about the UK, but honestly, should grant money be spent on this type of research? We already have enough research on the topic of exercise increases brain activity/retention/rest/learning. They are all interconnected. Spend grant money on more pressing issues, such as how to encourage adults to improve reading/writing/ math skills via ABE/GED classes. And educate adult instructors at better empathizing and understanding their fears associated with reentry to any sort of classroom setting and failure. This is why many adults do not complete ABE/GED courses. Past failures interfere with present attempts and many educators don't get it.

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, December 4, 2014 12:53 PM

Especially during the times that I don't have something original to blog about (which has been lately), content curation has been a huge help to keep ideas flowing on my blog. I'm always sharing what I think is helpful or thought-provoking to me, so hopefully it is for you, too. As the article states, sometimes it's good to change things up, and throw in some new ideas so things don't sound like one long advertisement for your company and its products. I don't have a company, but I'd like to think that bringing you a variety of ideas about technical communications and other STEM related topics contributes to the well-being of my "TechCommGeekMom" brand. 

 

Anyone who's into content marketing should take a look at this. It's basic information, but it makes a lot of sense.

Via Danielle M. Villegas
Terri Rice's insight:

Danielle is right. This story by Justine Bateman is similar to many of us older women trying to get degrees and find our way back into the workforce. Im in my mid-fifties and Im working on my Master's. It is very tiring and frustrating to ask a question and have a blank look stare back at you. Honestly, finding a way to communicate with other generations is very challenging. I would love to develop a forum for women of all ages and pursuits to come together and share their stories, encouragements, and failures so the rest of us could know we are not alone. But Im still learning how to find my way around this technical stuff. Bless you, Danielle for sharing this story.

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, November 6, 2014 8:57 PM

Justine is just a hair older than me, and started at an older age than me, but her story is similar to mine going to grad school in the last few years. I don't regret going to grad school, and hope I can get to do my PhD eventually (time and money are preventing it right now). But it's so fantastic to read about someone who is part of my generation who rediscovered a way to get involved with a STEM-related career at a later age. Just proves you are never too old to learn! I love this story because I can relate to it so well. Read it! It's really good.

This is what it feels like to be unemployed for years

The term among economists for losing your job market value when you're unemployed is "skill erosion." Here's what that feels like.

Via Danielle M. Villegas
Terri Rice's insight:

Wow! This could be about me. It resonates with many of us trying to improve our marketability by completing degrees and getting advanced degrees. However, employers only see the gap, not what you filled it with. Frustration abounds! I agree with Danielle, it is not a place you want to be, let alone multiple times or months, or, heaven forbid, years. Read this and see if you can encourage some one with a jjob lead.

more...
Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, December 10, 2014 4:25 PM

Craig Cardimon brought this article to my attention, and boy, it struck a STRONG chord with me.

 

Having been unemployed twice in the last 5 years, both times for about a year or so, everything in this article happened to me both times. It's part of the fear that I face if I should find myself either unemployed or underemployed again in the future--I don't want to have to go through this yet again. It almost feels like PTSD having experienced it not once, but twice in recent years.  You truly lose your self-confidence. It's taken two years to get mine back. 

 

This is one reason that I recommend to anyone who is job searching to stay active on social media, in order to continue being part of the conversation of topics going on in one's field and learning the trends. I also recommend trying to find part-time jobs related to your field, not finding outside work outside of one's field, so that way you can stay in the loop, and perhaps learn a new skill. Taking a course to brush up on a skill helps too. 

 

This is an interesting article that I hope employers read, so they can better understand the impact of the economy. There are plenty of good workers out there that just haven't been given a break, by no fault of their own, so it's worth investing a little extra time to let them get back up to speed again.

Terri Rice's insight:

I really like this article because it touches on a personal topic. I have recently met some young ID professionals who are under 35 years of age and they did not grasp my frustration with their warp speed explanations or their ability to run words together so fast I got whiplash following the discussion. My point is, there are many adult learners who really are older than 35 and we need materials created aimed at our generation. Not everything, because, yes we actually have intelligence, but if some material did not consist of acronyms (unless a key is provided) it would terrific. Also, I think if designers realized we are still very relevant and brilliant (even I do say so myself). I just hope younger ID professionals would ask their own parents how they feel maneuvering through all of technology today. Maybe mom and dad can remind them to be considerate of us old timers trying to learn new things as fast as we can. Just one old woman's thoughts.

Via Danielle M. Villegas
Terri Rice's insight:

In my opinion, social media is what you make it. If you have the time to stay online discoursing with people about work, life, events, etc...  then I say, DO IT!. But for some of us, time is fractured into so many directions and needs it will take longer to get to a place of splendiferous communication fest with others. I look forward to that day, but for now  I must stay one of those who just rehash what someone else has thought. My thoughts are still too scrambled to mean much to anyone other than me ( and a psychologist). :)

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, December 3, 2014 2:15 PM

I like this article by Robert Caruso (@fondalo on Twitter) that he posted on LinkedIn. I agree that in the end, the true purpose of social media is about the relationships and connections we make with each other. This is the perspective I've always had in writing my blog, but also participating in social media. Initially, it was to make contacts in tech comm as a newbie in the field. Now, it's to make contacts AND maintain contacts in tech comm, both professionally and personally. Creating friendships as well as networking contacts has been the best part of participating in social media, and I would never stop doing that! 

 

What do you think? Does Robert make a good point? Or is social media merely a marketing tool for either commercial or personal promotion?
