The Myth of Multitasking And What It Means For Learning

The Myth of Multitasking And What It Means For Learning | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

Multitasking is pretty much seen as a necessity in the modern world. The ability to do several things at once – even if it’s something as apparently simple as emailing and talking at the same time – is taken for granted.

But the belief that engaging in several tasks at once means we are more productive is a myth. Instead of saving time, multitasking not only takes longer but also makes mistakes more likely. It also does something to our brains

Many of us have discovered the myth of multitasking the hard way. We like to think we're being more productive, but we're not.
Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, November 28, 2014 1:39 PM

Multitasking is rarely an efficient or effective method of working, which many of us learn the hard way.

Miklos Szilagyi's curator insight, November 29, 2014 1:04 PM

Yeahhh... true... everything which is not multitasking, vibrating extensively is simply boring... I live in this life too not only my children... and it's true also that it's not effective at all... I mean, the multitasking... it "helps" more or less to forget the bad things, the chimers (for the moment)  and gives the feeling of being very effective... false... fake... voila, one of our biggest dilemmas... and don't fool ourselves, it's ours too, not only that of our children...

EdTechTeam: The How (and Why) It's Time to Create Digital Portfolios

EdTechTeam: The How (and Why) It's Time to Create Digital Portfolios | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

Digital Student Portfolios are becoming more important now than ever! Students are creating and remixing information like never before – and where is all that amazing work going? At my old school it was wiped off the devices at the end of the year – a heart-wrenching idea that I was personally against. This is why we need to publish student work in one place and let it serve as a home of student reflection, and a become a destination to unleash student pride and curiosity.

There are many reasons to begin the journey to digital portfolios – here are just a few.

Charting New Territory – Amsterdam’s Jewish Online Hebrew School | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
Jeled classes are 40 minutes long. The material concentrates on basic Judaism, holidays, Israel and other timely topics. The class launched in early November 2014 and the first month was devoted to the “Jewish family.” During Kislev, the class will be learning about Chanukah. As the school expands, the administration plans to introduce more topics to meet the needs of present and future students and, most importantly, their families. There are also plans to expand the program to other European countries.
