Kids and Educational Media: Desire to Learn vs. Design to Teach

Kids' consumption of educational content drops precipitously after age 5 (1:16 a day among 2- to 4-year-olds, :50 a day among 5- to 7-year-olds and :42 a day among 8-10-year-olds) The research was based on parent interviews about their children's habits with TV, games, online and mobile media and "educational" was defined so as to give respondents latitude to interpret its meaning for their own families: "good for your child's learning or growth, or that teaches some type of lesson, such as an academic or social skill."

The revolutionary new design for airline seats that could make economy just as luxurious as first class

The revolutionary new design for airline seats that could make economy just as luxurious as first class | Gp Issues: Big Ideas | Scoop.it

Airplane economy-class passengers of the future could enjoy almost as much luxury as those travelling in first class thanks to a revolutionary new kind of airline seat. AirGo airline seats, brainchild of Malaysia-based engineering student Alireza Yaghoubi, are a low-cost, ergonomic approach to economy class cabin design. As anyone who has travelled in the cheap seats knows, today's standard reclining models, which have not had a major design upgrade since the Sixties, leave little space if the passenger in front decides to lean back. New design places the entertainment screen and tray above the passenger in their own storage compartmentSeats include nylon mesh to cushion passengers - and minimise sweating on long flightsConcept has already won Malaysian national James Dyson Award

Now if only the airline industry would adopt it and make it a standard. Quick someone call Richard Branson!

“One of the most important and distinctive features of Spinoza's philosophy is that it is practical through and through. His ideas are never merely intellectual constructions, but lead directly to a certain way of life.”

Philosophy For Parents - Patheos

Philosophy is about making sense of the human condition.  It tries to do this by exploring concepts and phenomena that we encounter as part of our human experience, such as truth, knowledge, reality, goodness, beauty, right and wrong, reason, emotion, the soul, free will, determinism, choice, action, virtue, and so on.

 

Parenting, too, is about making sense of the human condition.  As parents we have to teach our children how to make sense of the world, of the concepts of right and wrong, of what is good and what is beautiful.  We help them to make sense of themselves – their thoughts and feelings, their choices, their actions, their relationships with others, etc.

So, parenting has the potential to be a very important philosophical activity.  Yet, it is safe to say that philosophers do not generally engage directly with parents.  No, those engaging directly with parents tend to be psychologists, counselors, educators, doctors, sometimes management consultants and other parents.  The advice and help that these people offer for family challenges is, for the most part, fantastic, and sometimes even vital.  But philosophy can give us a perspective on our children that is different from the perspective of child experts.  And it can give us different tools for solving the problems we have with them.

TheGpTutor.Com's insight:

There are no better sources than parents to learn existentialism, utilitarianism and humanism.
