Over 10 million women and a million men are affected by different forms of eating disorders in the United States alone.

Eating disorders are triggered by a complexity of factors including social, biological, psychological and behavioral items.

This Is Your Brain On The Internet

This Is Your Brain On The Internet | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

Is the internet and social media influencing your brain? Documentary filmmaker Tiffany Shlain investigates our changing behaviors in the connected world.

How do media and technology impact our brain? According to a "a recent study, Dr. Small observed brain activity in two groups of subjects interacting with a search engine –one that was 'net-savvy' and one that was 'net naïve'. The results showed increased brain activity in the experienced netizens, reflecting Shlain’s hypothesis that our online behaviors stimulate more brain systems."

Eric Moss's curator insight, June 29, 10:11 AM

When you hear the word "addicted", normally the first thing that comes to mind is drugs, alcohol, and cigarettes, what about the internet? I found it extremely interesting that there is actually a classified disorder in today’s age, Internet Addiction Disorder. What if you go out to dinner, and you are sitting at the table for just to long, have you ever gotten a craving to just go check social media? It appears to me that social media is chemically changing our brains around. An interesting route to go might be quitting the Internet “cold turkey”, if it works for other addictions, why not try it for this. Seeing how the dopamine, and other chemicals are really reacting inside our brain could be beneficial to determining a solution to this up and coming problem. It seems as if our changing society has lead to such problems, maybe these are some of the repercussions we must face with our advancing technological state.

Rethinking Dyslexia; Rethinking Priorities: Let’s teach our children to read!

Rethinking Dyslexia; Rethinking Priorities: Let’s teach our children to read! | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

"...While it is true that dyslexics possess and can develop a skill set that is prized in the marketplace, it is a skill set that is overwhelmingly devalued, ignored, and sometimes even punished in school. No school-age child has ever heard the words, “You have dyslexia,” and felt lucky.

Rather, students with dyslexia are called “disabled” by parents and teachers, and much worse names by other kids. They get low grades. They get teased by peers. Because dyslexics struggle to memorize and repeat rote information, misguided teachers, counselors, and even parents draw negative conclusions about their ability to think through and solve problems. Teachers may encourage dyslexics to apply more effort, or may even suggest that a child doesn’t care enough about school work.

The truth is that students with dyslexia often work harder, and care as much as any of their peers—but the results of their efforts are exhausting, disappointing at every turn, discouraging over time and, eventually, totally defeating....."

Want to help someone learn? Have them assume a role. | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

To foster higher level skills, the player should assume a role during the game and not just play. Assuming a role means the learner must actively think about their actions, decisions and choices from a perspective other than themself. From a social learning context allowing the learner to mimic or role-play desired behavior influences future behaviors of the learner. A role play provides a framework for the learner to practice what he or she needs to do in a safe and secure environment.
