For Students, the Importance of Doing Work That Matters

For Students, the Importance of Doing Work That Matters | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
The reality of this moment is that every one of our students can create and share and connect in ways that didn’t exist even a decade ago. I can’t imagine what it’s going to be like a decade from now. But I know this: if our students look at the work we’re asking them to do today and say “It doesn’t matter,” we’re missing a huge opportunity to help them become the learners they now need to be.

Lon Woodbury's insight:

Don't we want "work that matters" for ourselves?  Why wouldn't that be just as important for students? -Lon

Violent video games linked to increased aggression: decrease in prosocial behaviour and empathy

Violent video games linked to increased aggression:  decrease in prosocial behaviour and empathy | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

Playing violent video games can lead to an increase in aggressive behaviour and decrease in prosocial behaviour and empathy, according to a new report.


Researchers said that violent video game play is linked to increased aggression in players but insufficient evidence exists about whether the link extends to criminal violence or delinquency.


“The research demonstrates a consistent relation between violent video game use and increases in aggressive behaviour, aggressive cognitions and aggressive affect, and decreases in prosocial behaviour, empathy and sensitivity to aggression,” according to a new American Psychological Association (APA) task force report.

Lon Woodbury's insight:

Although violent video games don't necessarily result in violent action, this study indicates one result of [;auomg violent video games is increased aggression and less empathy.  Even though a causal effect to violence isn't shown, a lot of antisocial and self-destructive behaviors are, and those can be damaging without the public drama looked for in the popular media. -Lon

What (Nearly) Three Weeks Without Wi-Fi Looks Like | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

It’s been quiet around here, and with good reason. Every year, the girls and I go to my native Sweden for almost a month to visit with family and friends. I usually take this time to unplug and get away from the constant distractions of social media. As I stated on my bucket list for 2015, my goal is to spend a full week as a family with no screen time at some point this year. I didn’t quite reach that goal during my time in Sweden, but we came pretty close.
