How to Actually Practice Multi-Tasking

How to Actually Practice Multi-Tasking | Teaching & Learning in the Digital Age | Scoop.it
Multi-tasking can be done effectively if it involves simple tasks that operate on completely different channels in our brain. For example, listening to the news while folding laundry.

Howard Rheingold's curator insight, March 27, 2013 10:38 PM

"Task-layering" appears to be a kind of multi-tasking that works -- as opposed to the kind that degrades performance on each of the tasks we try to accomplish simultaneously.

Peter Skillen's curator insight, April 2, 2013 7:52 AM

What I find interesting is the work Benjamin Bergen describes in Louder Than Words. http://www.louderthanwordsbook.com/ People often ask can we multitask as if there is a 'yes' or 'no' answer. Clearly, situations matter. Bergen points to research that suggests if we visualize or imagine certain activities - like hitting a baseball - the same regions of the brain are activated and engaged as if we were actually hitting that baseball. So even though we might expect the visual region to light up because we are 'seeing' something in our mind's eye, it is actually a motor region that is engaged. This, therefore, impacts our multitasking abilities for another 'motor' task. --> I love the rich texture of these ideas.

What To Do If Your School Bans Useful Websites

What To Do If Your School Bans Useful Websites | Teaching & Learning in the Digital Age | Scoop.it
Today is Banned Website Awareness Day, and all across the country, educators are doing their part to raise awareness of how overly restrictive blocking of educational websites affects student learning.

The dialogue around filtering must also include bring-your-own-device policies, appropriate use of social media in schools, and overall responsible use of technology in school. Each of these issues plays an important part in the equation that influences school policy around filtering websites. For example, do students and teachers use social media sites like Edmodo or even Facebook for class purposes? Are educational videos on YouTube part of teachers’ curriculum? In large school districts, does it make sense to have individual school policies? Are students allowed to use their cell phones?

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 29, 2013 8:54 PM

"SAMR is a great framework for thinking about technology and how it can best be used in a teaching environment to bring about transformational learning opportunities that wouldn't have been possible without the technology."

If SAMR is new to you the letters stand for:
Substitution

Augmentation

Modification

Redefinition 

This visual from Mark Anderson does a great job providing an overview of SAMR as well as transformative level activities. To go the actual link pdf: http://ictevangelist.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/SAMR-flow-chart.pdf.

Cathy Davidson frequently writes about the challenges facing our education system on this blog, and when a consortium of top universities combined to create an online course initiative, it seemed that online education had grown past its infancy as was ready for mainstream acceptance.

 

"That initiative, Coursera, has clearly excited the public, as it now boasts over one million students taking free online courses. Yet it has not been without its critics." See site for more.

Study Explodes the Myth of Internet-Based Information Overload | Social Media Today

The key differentiator between those who feel overwhelmened by the volume of information available today and those who feel empowered and enthusiastic appears to be....know-how. --Howard Rheingold

 

"But now, there’s proof that all this worry about information overload, message meltdown and attention crash is overinflated hyperventilating. A study out of Northwestern University finds that “very few Americans feel bogged down or overwhelmed by the volume of news and information at their fingertips and on their screens.”

Published in the journal The Information Society, the findings were based on seven focus groups with 77 participants from around the country. According to study author Eszter Hargittai, associate professor of communication studies, “We found that the high volume of information available these days seems to make most people feel empowered and enthusiastic. People are able to get their news and information from a diverse set of sources and they seem to like having those options.”"
