Carlos Fosca's insight:

..."A very strong research results show that a child’s ability to resist the temptation of distraction and stay focused predicts how she will fare financially and health wise in adulthood. Some call it “self-control”, others “grit” or “delay of gratification.” It boils down to the tenacity to keep your eyes on your goal (or schoolwork) and resist impulse and distraction.


"..Neuroscientists tell us this crucial mental ability hinges on the growth of a neural strip in the brain’s prefrontal cortex, just behind the forehead, which connects to circuitry that helps manage both attention and unruly emotions. This circuitry grows with the rest of the brain from birth throughout childhood and the teen years."...

Las ocho tendencias que marcarán el futuro de Internet

Las ocho tendencias que marcarán el futuro de Internet | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

"Casi veinte años después de sus primeros pasos en los hogares y algunas empresas, Internet evolucionó de diferentes maneras hasta convertirse en lo que es en la actualidad.
De aquella web inicial que requería de un módem telefónico para leer texto y ver apenas algunas pequeñas fotos, a la Web 2.0 y el auge de los blogs y las redes sociales como Facebook y Twitter.
Hoy Internet es una red multiplataforma que mediante tabletas, televisores y “smartphones” permite consumir contenidos en vivo de música y videos vía streaming. Desde cualquier lugar y bajo demanda. O conectarnos con cualquier persona en tiempo real."

How To Help Innovation Grow Up At Your Organization

How To Help Innovation Grow Up At Your Organization | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

Instilling innovation deep into your organization’s culture requires patience, persistence, and a long-term commitment to get it right. Management should work to redefine the behaviors recognized, rewarded, and promoted among employees. Are those behaviors linked to innovation? If not, you may need to refocus values, or perhaps create your own innovation road map to drive and manage the change you seek to create.

How an Indian Teacher is Transforming High School Practices Using Technology

How an Indian Teacher is Transforming High School Practices Using Technology | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

Technology has helped me tremendously in converting my class from ‘Teacher Driven’ to ‘Student Driven’. Technology tools also provide me real time data about students learning – so I can adjust my teaching accordingly. Moreover, because of technology, I can encourage students to pursue their other areas of interest as well. For example, if a child has to attend any national level camp or any sports event, now can access lessons from my E-classroom or connect with class through video conference .
