Internet Addiction Infographic Raises Awareness

Internet Addiction Infographic Raises Awareness | Global Leaders | Scoop.it

Has the internet become a drug?

 

One study titled “Microstructure Abnormalities in Adolescents with Internet Addiction Disorder” from PLoS One concluded that adolescents with Internet Addiction Disorder:

 

Had multiple structural changes in the brain. The gray matter atrophy and white matter FA changes of some brain regions were significantly correlated with the duration of internet addiction.

 

These results may be interpreted, at least partially, as the functional impairment of cognitive control in IAD. The prefrontal cortex abnormalities were consistent with previous substance abuse studies, hence we suggested that there may exist partially overlapping mechanisms in IAD and substance use.

 

We hoped that our results will enhance our understanding of IAD and aid in improving the diagnosis and prevention of IAD.

Online Education as an Agent of Transformation

Online Education as an Agent of Transformation | Global Leaders | Scoop.it
Online education is beginning to show itself as a disruptive innovation, introducing more convenient and affordable services that can transform sectors.
Anne Egros's insight:

Online (higher) education will change the way students will learn and it will help serve students who cannot afford traditional on campus teaching today.

 

However the need for face to face meetings will still be there. The students may meet in person in local clusters to work on projects while using online materials instead than on campus classes.

 

Already many universities offer online free courses : https://www.coursera.org/

 

Another disruptive technology in education is crowd-sourcing such as Memrise.com an online learning platform. I am using it for Russian and it is very effective

We need creative people to facilitate the understanding of data

We need creative people to facilitate the understanding of data | Global Leaders | Scoop.it

"Creativity is driven by Social dynamics.

Creativity is the result of a set of relationships with a strong social dimension and emotional. It is a collaborative environment (and this is where HR can play a significant role), hence the change of focus towards the organizational culture and transformation in design organizations.”

 

“We need an inclusion in this dialogue from artists, from poets, from writers — from ===> people who can bring a human element into this discussion. <====

 

Because I believe that this world of data is going to be transformative to us.”
