8 Ways Tech Has Completely Rewired Our Brains | Learning Analytics | Scoop.it

Some cognition experts have praised the effects of tech on the brain, lauding its ability to organize our lives and free our minds for deeper thinking. Others fear tech has crippled our attention spans and made us uncreative and impatient when it comes to anything analog.

Dr Pam Hill's insight:

As new research reveals additional information about how learning occurs and is retained, it will be important for educational theories to evolve.  This article shares some of those approaches that we now know can improve our cognition.  Great article to open up additional discussions!
