Stanford study finds walking improves creativity

Stanford study finds walking improves creativity | Technology To Teach | Scoop.it

Stanford researchers found that walking boosts creative inspiration. They examined creativity levels of people while they walked versus while they sat. A person's creative output increased by an average of 60 percent when walking.
Many people claim they do their best thinking while walking. A new study finds that walking indeed boosts creative inspiration.
Steve Jobs, the late co-founder of Apple, was known for his walking meetings. Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg has also been seen holding meetings on foot. And perhaps you've paced back and forth on occasion to drum up ideas.
A new study by Stanford researchers provides an explanation for this.

8 Creative Uses of Google Drawings You Shouldn’t Ignore

8 Creative Uses of Google Drawings You Shouldn’t Ignore | Technology To Teach | Scoop.it

"Did you ever click the bright red "New" button inside your Google Drive?

 

"Google Drawings isn't at the forefront of tools. The limelight is reserved for Docs, Sheets, and Slides. But let's do a reawakening of sorts and click on More to go to the "neglected" siblings. We have seen the usefulness of Google Forms. It's time to appreciate the versatility of Google Drawings.

 

"Google Drawings is the freshest among all Google Drive tools. It is not a full-blownimage editor like MS Paint. But the graphic editor is more powerful for one simple fact – it is a real-time collaborative application."

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

EXCELLENT suggestions and tips for how to use Google Drawings. Well worth the time to investigate.

All Roads Lead to Code - EduTech4Teachers

All Roads Lead to Code - EduTech4Teachers | Technology To Teach | Scoop.it
So, why just use technology, when you can build it, right? But first—students need the programming know-how in order to do so… And that begins with you!

Whether you choose to embrace the concept or not, it’s becoming more and more important to equip students with coding skills. It’s the new literacy for a generation of students growing up in a digitally-connected world. Having this knowledge not only strengthens general skills such as critical thinking and problem solving, but it will become invaluable in their future as a wide range of industries are eager to hire individuals with programming abilities.

Mary Reilley Clark's curator insight, May 2, 2016 11:00 AM

When I went to the CSLA conference in San Diego in February, I was shocked at how few library professionals who attended were on social media. Deborah Ford presented about marketing for school libraries, and asked for a show of hands: Who's on Twitter? Pinterest? Facebook? Who uses these SM tools for work? Hardly anyone in the room was!  

 

This is a great article to share with any educator who is hesitant to get started with social media!

Virtual Debate: 7 Advantages of Online Discussions

Virtual Debate: 7 Advantages of Online Discussions | Technology To Teach | Scoop.it

How to facilitate such discussions is confusing to many teachers, and online discussion threads and chatrooms may be seen as a poor substitute for the “real” thing, an evil necessity of the online class. However, although there are some barriers such as its more decontextualized nature, in comparison to face-to-face discussion, there are advantages that are unique to the online discussion that can be built on by the instructor while the drawbacks are minimized.
