In a new study, kids gave lower ratings to teachers who left out key details about toys. And once misled, they inspected new toys more carefully.

The following is excerpted from Clive Thompson’s book Smarter Than You Think: How Technology Is Changing Our Minds for the Better, out now from the Penguin Press. Is the Internet ruining our ability to remember facts?

Sharrock's insight:

from the article: "We don't remember in isolation—and that's a good thing. "Quite simply, we seem to record as much outside our minds as within them," as Wegner has written. "Couples who are able to remember things transactively offer their constituent individuals storage for and access to a far wider array of information than they would otherwise command." These are, as Wegner describes it in a lovely phrase, "the thinking processes of the intimate dyad.""

Interesting read.

Physician-teachers can be inspired to adopt caring behaviors, becoming better role models in the process.
Sharrock's insight:

from the article: "In the study, groups of established physician-teachers from five different academic medical centers met at least twice a month. During the meetings, the doctors either practiced skills designed to enhance compassion, or reflected on their own work through discussion and narrative writing.

After 18 months, residents and medical students at each of the medical centers evaluated the physician-teachers, as well as a “control group” of faculty, on such matters as listening carefully and connecting with others, teaching communication and relationship-building skills, and inspiring the adoption of caring attitudes toward patients.

At all five sites, those physician-teachers who participated in the program consistently outscored the controls."

 

In short, compassion CAN be taught.

Love and sex in the age of social media and mobile communication.
Sharrock's insight:

Love this question: “What happens after you’ve had a great online flirtatious chat … and then the conversation sucks in person?” 

 

I think about the old days when people didn't have email or the Internet. They depended on the postal services of their day. People wrote letters and it would take days (or weeks?) to receive a letter. Wouldn't it be an interesting school experiment for everybody to write letters to each other and agree not to use electronic means of contact for a given amount of time?

 

You could use this article to discuss the Internet as well. How do you know you are conversing with who you think you're conversing with? Identities online. Spoofing. False identities. borrowed phone leads to texting problems.
