Wow.  Important information here (and lots of resources!).

 

"When kids get tired or bored, they tend to check out.  Once kids begin to check out they are no longer learning, and they mentally are removed from the situation despite being physically present.  It’s important to get their blood flowing and to reconnect those kids that have started day dreaming instead of listening to the lesson.  These six blog posts can explain more about the importance of brain breaks for kids and adults."

I find this one a bit chilling. The numbers - particularly when you look at the teacher's perspective - really hit home about balancing that media diet with things that have no plugs or screens. Books, chalk, paint, music ... all those things are media too!

Thank you for this frightening but powerful data.

Dr. Debra Harper, Ed.D.'s curator insight, January 16, 2014 8:04 AM

No matter what life activity or event, our children need to be taught how to balance & (many times) separate work from play.  Too much of one over the other affects our ability as humans to  learn those things necessary to promote healthy relationships with others.

Infographics are interesting–a mash of (hopefully) easily-consumed visuals (so, symbols, shapes, and images) and added relevant character-based data (so, numbers, words, and brief sentences).

The learning application for them is clear, with many academic standards–including the Common Core standards–requiring teachers to use a variety of media forms, charts, and other data for both information reading as well as general fluency...

"Findings show there is a key relationship between moral judgment and empathic concern in particular, specifically feelings of warmth and compassion in response to someone in distress. In a series of experiments, utilitarian moral judgment was revealed to be specifically associated with reduced empathic concern, and not with any of the demographic or cultural variables tested, nor with other aspects of empathic responding, including personal distress and perspective taking."
