Distracted? Slap this Hitachi gizmo on your forehead to focus

If you're looking to sharpen your mental focus, Hitachi has developed a wearable brain activity sensor designed to improve learning skills.
The prototype, which looks somewhat like an old-school telephone handset, covers a user's forehead and works with a smartphone, according to Hitachi High-Tech, a group company.
While it isn't exactly discreet, it only weighs about 100 grams. Since it has no external power cables, it can be worn while doing daily activities, instantly showing feedback via the smartphone.

A Framework for Differentiation

A Framework for Differentiation | Stretching our comfort zone | Scoop.it

"Differentiation is adjusting and modifying what skills and concepts student learn, what materials the use, and/or how their learning is assessed based on the needs of the students.

Our students are not all the same, so we cannot expect that teaching a lesson one way will reach every student."
