Scientists say our ability to focus is being undermined by bursts of information from e-mail and other interruptions.

Susan Taylor's curator insight, October 14, 2013 5:55 PM

A few years ago, Kord Campbell missed the email of his life -- for 12 days.  How did this happen?  Through an electronic flood of email, IM, chats and web browers, it simply slipped through the cracks.

 

Campbell managed to save his million dollar deal, "yet continues to struggle with the effects of the deluge of data. Even after he unplugs, he craves the stimulation he gets from his electronic gadgets. He forgets things like dinner plans, and he has trouble focusing on his family."

 

This is our brain in the Digital Age.

 

Generally, our ability to focus is being undermined by never-ending bits of information coming at us 24/7.  Information overload, multitasking, interruptions and constant distraction hampers work and family life.

 

"Nonstop interactivity is  one of the most significant shifts ever in the human environment."  The bottom line?  Technology is rewiring our brains, exposing us "to an environment that asks our brains to do things we weren’t necessarily evolved to do.  We know already there are consequences.”

 

We are at a moment of dramatic change. 

 

The greatest threat?  "Heavy technology use diminishes empathy by limiting how much people engage with one another -- even in the same room.  That empathy is essential to the human condition."

 

In an age that supposedly keeps us more connected, we are in fact becoming more fragmented. The human condition -- the unique features of being human -- is becoming more fragile.

Niin kiintoisa juttu Googlen ja Applen kamppailusta koulumaailmassa, ettei sitä voi jättää skuuppaamatta, vaikka onkin englanniksi. Näyttää siltä, että vähitellen Android,  maailmassa nopeimmin kasvavan avoimen lähdekoodin ekosysteemin tukemana, on saavuttamassa Applea isomman jalansijan kouluissa. Google, jota kaikkien Android -laitteiden menestyminen hyödyttää, on työntämässä jalkaansa jokaisen luokan ovenrakoon.
Millainenhan myllerrys kustannusrintamalla on tapahtumassa, kun WSOY ja Otava ovatkin yhtäkkiä kilpailutilanteessa, joissa niiden tuotteiden on pärjättävä digitaalisessa oppimisessa?

Why Digital Learning Is Here To Stay

Why Digital Learning Is Here To Stay | iThink, therefore iPad | Scoop.it
Digital learning is coming whether people like it or not. The new standards call for it. Twenty-first century readiness requires it. Future jobs rely on it. There is no doubt that educational technology has the power to motivate kids, so why not harness that passion in the K-12 classroom? There are many reasons why digital learning has arrived and is here to stay.

Via Tom D'Amico (@TDOttawa)

Definitely should be part of learning, but not ALL the learning. Digital skills are like all other skills - tools. The CONTENT is what is really important! Too much focus is often on the tools being used, rather than what they are supposed to be teaching.....
