Here's the world's first giant-screen Windows Phone, the Nokia Lumia 1520 | Technology | Scoop.it

Nokia announced the world's first giant-sized Windows Phone, the Lumia 1520. It will have a 6-inch screen, which makes the phone's display a full inch larger than Samsung's Galaxy S4 and two inches larger than Apple's iPhone 5S. It's also the first phone to take advantage of the newest version of Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 software, which has been designed to work on giant "phablets" (part phone, part tablet).

A phablet why not, but if you do want to make a phone call, best not to hold the thing to your ear: you may look ridiculous. Invest in a Bluetooth headset and yammer away with your phablet hidden.

Stop trying to figure out if screentime is good for students

Stop trying to figure out if screentime is good for students | Technology | Scoop.it
The fact that we still discuss this is ludicrous. Simply ask yourself, “Is school is supposed to be preparing students for career success?” Of course! There are few careers where you would hear a debate about the need for access to technology. It’s a no-brainer that to be successful in the world, instant access to knowledge, people, and tools of communication are necessary. This is no different in our schools.
Via Nik Peachey
Alex Simon's insight:
In my opinion, it is good for students to have screentime, but only to learn. If they are doing anything other than what is supposed to be done, it shouldnt be allowed. But if you use it properly, it could be a great recource to help you learn

How video gaming can be beneficial for the brain

How video gaming can be beneficial for the brain | Technology | Scoop.it

Video gaming causes increases in the brain regions responsible for spatial orientation, memory formation and strategic planning as well as fine motor skills. This has been shown in a new study conducted at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development and Charité University Medicine St. Hedwig-Krankenhaus. The positive effects of video gaming may also prove relevant in therapeutic interventions targeting psychiatric disorders.

Natalia Zhukova's curator insight, November 24, 2013 3:49 AM

I used to think video gaming could only destroy your sense of reality, develop isolation from society, alienation, even depersonalization and loss of identity in which the real self is replaced by virtual, emotions are inhibited and finally you end up with psychiatric disorders. This article changes my approach.

 

Ella Cooper's curator insight, May 1, 8:11 AM

Thought provoking study that has found a casual link between video gaming and volumetric brain increase. The possibilities for advancements in video gaming therapy for brain disorders could be close with future research.
