Analyzing iPad Myths in Education -IPAD 4 SCHOOLS | The Future of Education  - Where do we go now? | Scoop.it

"Many obstacles that iPad cynics attempt to put in place when discussing a roll-out are based on untruths, poorly research and/or out-of-date information. I was delighted when my Canadian Twitter friend and fellow iPad blogger, Steve Lai decided to join forces, as we’ve done before, to combat this dis-information that floats around the education profession worldwide."

Why You Remember Less When You Read from a Screen

Why You Remember Less When You Read from a Screen | The Future of Education  - Where do we go now? | Scoop.it

There are undeniable advantages to carrying a whole library on your Kindle or tablet computer but retaining the information you read doesn't seem to be one of them. Recent studies agree that when it comes to recalling information, you're probably ahead to read printed material like bound books, paper journals, and print magazines. In one study that asked Italian college students to read a 28-page story and then place 14 plot events in correct order, Kindle readers performed significantly worse. 

 

Researchers suggest that we have a more difficult time recalling digital information because it has no permanent physical location.

Miloš Bajčetić's curator insight, August 31, 2:56 AM

"Both anecdotally and in published studies, people report that when trying to locate a particular piece of written information they often remember where in the text it appeared. ... 'We might recall that we passed the red farmhouse near the start of the trail before we started climbing uphill through the forest; in a similar way, we remember that we read about Mr. Darcy rebuffing Elizabeth Bennett on the bottom of the left-hand page in one of the earlier chapters.'"

Just Start. Shoot first, aim later

Don Cloud's curator insight, September 1, 10:43 AM

If you are only doing things for which you think you're "ready", then you are *not* growing ... and you are holding yourself back from your greater potential.

 

So get comfortable pushing (or throwing) yourself outside your comfort zone.  And as you grow and develop your people, remember that it's the leaders job (e.g. your job) to push (or throw) them outside of their comfort zone, too -- for their own good.
