LLZ Uni Halle's curator insight, December 18, 2013 7:26 AM

"...Results showed that on average, teachers believed 49% of the neuromyths, particularly myths related to commercialized educational programs. Around 70% of the general knowledge statements were answered correctly. Teachers who read popular science magazines achieved higher scores on general knowledge questions. More general knowledge also predicted an increased belief in neuromyths. These findings suggest that teachers who are enthusiastic about the possible application of neuroscience findings in the classroom find it difficult to distinguish pseudoscience from scientific facts. .."

Prosocial Media Linked With Empathy Across Cultures - Association for Psychological Science | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

Prosocial media and video games appear to have a positive influence on behavior regardless of culture, according to a new cross-cultural study led by researchers at Iowa State University.

 

Lead author Sara Prot and colleagues surveyed thousands of adolescents and young adults in Australia, China, Croatia, Germany, Japan, Romania, and the United States for the study, measuring their media exposure and assessing their levels of empathy and helpfulness...

 

Similar to the first study, a second study showed that behavior was influenced by the type of games children played. Over time, students who played violent games became less likely to show empathy and behave in helpful ways, whereas those who played prosocial games became more empathetic and helpful.
