Watch this space - much to be equivocal about in this study, but maybe there is a germ of insight...

 

Whatever, we are autonomous human beings who can decide to be what we want to be!

The Worst Content Marketing Is What Everybody Else Is Doing. | Focus in business | Scoop.it

People today have the idea that content marketing is a magic bullet for branding, SEO, loyalty building, lead generation – you name it, content marketing can do it. As a result, everybody is publishing, whether or not he or she has creative talent, marketing talent or something to say. Predictably, these types of content marketing are failing, and chewing up a lot of time and money in the process.

How the Brain Learns—A Super Simple Explanation

eLearning professionals should learn more about the biological basis of learning. Check out this simple explanation.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 24, 7:53 AM

Are you looking for a simple explanation on how learning happens in the brain? The infographic above shows the shorthand version and a more detailed version is available in the post. Although this post is geared to e-learning the four processes that take place are also found in the traditional (and the blended) classroom.

Process 1: Getting the information which takes place in the sensory cortices. This is the time to touch as many of the senses as possible. Try to create lessons when introducing new material that include audio, visual and kinesthetic experiences.

Process 2: Make meaning which takes place in the temporal lobe. To make meaning of new information we must provide time for reflection.

Process 3: Form abstractions which takes place in the prefrontal lobe. The learner has received new information, reflected on the information and now begins to make meaning in their brain by making relationships, forming abstractions and creating new knowledge.

Process 4: Active testing which takes place in the motor cortex. The abstract becomes active, providing guides for future learning.

You will also find a link on this page which will allow you to download an eBook - Neuroscience Based eLearning Tips.

Chris Carter's curator insight, June 24, 4:35 PM

This is your brain ... this is your brain when it learns.

How 7 Successful Entrepreneurs Find Focus

How 7 Successful Entrepreneurs Find Focus | Focus in business | Scoop.it

It happens every day. Wherever you go, anything you look at, every noise you hear is another piece of information fighting for your attention. How do you block out the noises that don’t matter in order to focus on the ones that do?

 

This is no easy task, especially when every ping is another temptation to pull your mind away. Entrepreneurs who want to think outside the box are constantly exploring different creative avenues in hopes of finding a strategy that will get them closer to their next “aha” moment.

 

We ask the several successful entrepreneurs to reveal their secrets to blocking out the noise and pushing their minds to think even more creatively than they normally do.
