Harnessing the Incredible Learning Potential of the Adolescent Brain | #LEARNing2LEARN #Research

Harnessing the Incredible Learning Potential of the Adolescent Brain | #LEARNing2LEARN #Research | Modern Educational Technology and eLearning | Scoop.it
“[Adolescence is] a stage of life when we can really thrive, but we need to take advantage of the opportunity,” said Temple University neuroscientist Laurence Steinberg at a Learning and the Brain conference in Boston. Steinberg has spent his career studying how the adolescent brain develops and believes there is a fundamental disconnect between the popular characterizations of adolescents and what’s really going on in their brains.

Because the brain is still developing during adolescence, it has incredible plasticity. It’s akin to the first five years of life, when a child’s brain is growing and developing new pathways all the time in response to experiences. Adult brains are somewhat plastic as well — otherwise they wouldn’t be able to learn new things — but “brain plasticity in adulthood involves minor changes to existing circuits, not the wholesale development of new ones or elimination of others,” Steinberg said.

 

The adolescent brain is exquisitely sensitive to experience,” Steinberg said. “It is like the recording device is turned up to a different level of sensitivity.” That’s why humans tend to remember even the most mundane events from adolescence much better than even important events that took place later in life. It also means adolescence could be an extremely important window for learning that sticks. Steinberg notes this window is also lengthening as scientists observe the onset of puberty happening earlier and young people taking on adult roles later in life. Between these two factors, one biological and one social, adolescence researchers now generally say the period lasts 15 years between the ages of 10 and 25.

First of all, lets imagine that in the classroom the students will be able to handle this resource in order to increase their speaking and reading skills in one tool. I know that this is something utopian in our context not only because of the price of the product and  the scarce technological resources that some schools face. However, this does not imply that the product can not be used.

 

Maybe, one day this kind of resources will be implemented here in Colombia.

We’ve discovered that the fastest-growing organizations support their growth strategies by aligning their capabilities across all 7 Drivers, prioritizing their actions according to growth ambitions. This broader perspective helps them to reduce the volatility usually associated with rapid growth and to ensure their growth is sustainable.

We use the EY 7 Drivers of Growth, and our insights from working with the world’s leading companies, to help leaders of aspiring companies think differently about the enablers of growth. Looking at these drivers can help business leaders assess where they are today and to plan a path for the future to realize their growth ambitions.

John Rudkin's insight:

"While the field may get more crowded, there is no doubt the iPad will continue to be a major player in successful 1:1 school programs for many years to come"  Too right.

LEDs, pah! UK inventor cooks up cheap fabric alternative to giant displays

British inventor Andrew Fentem has come up with a way of cheaply turning fabric into large active displays.

Fentem, who pioneered multitouch input technology 15 years ago, only to see a UK quango squander the innovation and Apple reap the reward, calls the new display “organic pixels”.

He’s invented an ulta-thin magnetic actuator, fractions of a millimetre thick, which can be applied fabric to create a “pixel”.

The programmable actuators create enough of a magnetic field to “flip” the pixel. This allows a vast display to be created at much lower cost than an arena-scale LED display.

"Many engineers work under classic assumption that future is going to be white and shiny and invisible. I don’t think that’s going to be the case," Fentem said.

The original aim was to create an "Internet of Things" wallpaper, with a Japanese paper crafts feel, he told us.

“The invention came out of setting a hard constraint that whatever it was had to be printable; current bulky flip-dot technology costs around $1 per pixel, and this much cheaper to manufacture, around $0.10 per pixel which is very competitive with LEDs, and potentially resurrects an obsolete technology," he added.

The “Flick Pixels” can be made of almost any material. A brief video helps explain the concept and give a glimpse of its potential.



The electronics engineer worked in the defence industry at Thorn EMI before turning to research, focusing on input and visualisation technologies. More recently, he was an expert witness [interview] for Samsung in its litigation against Apple.

Fentem tells us (perhaps ominously) that it has been well received by the Large Area Electronics catapult centre at Cambridge University, who particularly like the fact it’s mass-customisable and potentially printable. So he's naturally keen on hearing from investors and supporters.

Wow, almost retro, but an intriguing motion display - like the Texas Instruments DLP idea, but BIG.
