Neuroscience: Our kids' glorious new age of distraction

Neuroscience: Our kids' glorious new age of distraction | elearning_moodle_schools | Scoop.it

According to Cathy N. Davidson, a professor of interdisciplinary studies at Duke University, and the author of the new book "Now You See It: How Brain Science of Attention Will Transform the Way We Live, Work, and Learn," much of the panic about children's shortened attention spans isn't just misguided, it's harmful. Younger generations, she argues, don't just think about technology more casually, they're actually wired to respond to it in a different manner than we are, and it's up to us -- and our education system -- to catch up to them.
