How to stop high school from stifling creativity

How to stop high school from stifling creativity | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Teenagers’ growing sense of independence can lead students to a self-motivated and fulfilling education
Carlos Fosca's insight:

..."Research indicates that approximately two-thirds of students become “intellectually disengaged” from their education during high school, partly because the teenage years are when young people develop a sense of personal autonomy and resistance to authority.

But that same sense of independent agency, properly nurtured and encouraged through innovative approaches to learning, can lead students to a self-motivated and fulfilling education..."

The MIND diet may slow brain aging by 7.5 years

The MIND diet may slow brain aging by 7.5 years | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Eating a group of specific foods — known as the MIND diet — may slow cognitive decline among aging adults, even when the person is not at risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, according to researchers at Rush University Medical Center.

This finding supplements a previous study by the research team, reported by KurzweiliAI in March, that found that the MIND diet may reduce a person’s risk in developing Alzheimer’s disease.

The researchers’ new study shows that older adults who followed the MIND diet more rigorously showed an equivalent of being 7.5 years younger cognitively than those who followed the diet least. Results of the study were recently published online in the journal Alzheimer’s & Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimer’s Association.

'Sometimes I'm terrified' of the Internet of Things, says father of the Internet

'Sometimes I'm terrified' of the Internet of Things, says father of the Internet | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Vint Cerf is known as a "father of the Internet," and like any good parent, he worries about his offspring -- most recently, the IoT.

"Sometimes I'm terrified by it," he said in a news briefing Monday at the Heidelberg Laureate Forum in Germany. "It's a combination of appliances and software, and I'm always nervous about software -- software has bugs."

The Internet of Things will offer the ability to manage many of the appliances we depend on, acknowledged Cerf, who won the Turing Award in 2004. With its ability to continuously monitor such devices, it also promises new insight into our use of resources, he said.

Are solar panels right for you? Google's new mapping tool can help you decide.

Are solar panels right for you? Google's new mapping tool can help you decide. | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

"So it's welcome news that Google wants to make this all much, much simpler with its brand new Project Sunroof tool. Plug in your address, and Google uses its aerial imagery capabilities to help you figure out whether solar power might be a worthwhile idea. (The project is still in its early stages; here's Google's announcement from Monday.)

For now, data is only available for selected parts of the country. But let's look at a sample address given in Redwood City, California. The tool first calculates both how big the roof is and how much sun it gets per year."

A great idea to help people decide on whether to invest in solar panels - could it work in the UK too?

"At this point in the 3D-printing game it should be obvious why the tech exists and why we should all own 3D printers: because they can change lives. Nowhere is that point hammered home more than in videos featuring the E-nable arms. In this latest video a girl named Isabella gets an amazing purple and pink 3D-printed hand from a volunteer named Stephen Davies who built and delivered the arm on behalf of Team UnLimbited."

The Most Effective Way to Protect an Aging Brain

The Most Effective Way to Protect an Aging Brain | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Researchers have known for some time that exercise is good for aging brains. The latest studies, though, are adding some finer points to that message: While exercise appears to work best before memory fades, it also benefits people who've already gotten dementia. And it seems to help not just with Alzheimer's disease, but also with vascular dementia, a kind of memory loss that’s caused by "silent" strokes in the brain.
