The New Marshmallow Test: Students Can’t Resist Multitasking

The New Marshmallow Test: Students Can’t Resist Multitasking | ipads in the classroom | Scoop.it

Brain scans taken during Poldrack’s experiment revealed that different regions of the brain were active under the two conditions, indicating that the brain engages in a different form of memory when forced to pay attention to two streams of information at once. The results suggest, the scientists wrote, that “even if distraction does not decrease the overall level of learning, it can result in the acquisition of knowledge that can be applied less flexibly in new situations.”

The main problem with this research is that it presupposes that we are using the right form of instruction with the students and that they are attending to it in the wrong way. I think it's more likely the wrong way around and we need to change the form of instruction to make it more engaging.

11 Mind Mapping Apps for the iPad

11 Mind Mapping Apps for the iPad | ipads in the classroom | Scoop.it

Mind mapping is a method that works for quite a lot of people. Brain storming, idea mapping, thought generation, think tanks – call it what you will. Traditionally done on large pieces of paper, why not use your iPad to create mind maps? You could use these for your own purposes, or “convert” those large flip charts into a smaller, digital version.
