Neuroscientist Warns Young Brains Being Re-Wired By Technology

Neuroscientist Warns Young Brains Being Re-Wired By Technology | Web tools to go | Scoop.it

Susan Greenfield of Oxford University said technology was re-wiring brains, particularly for young people who were growing up knowing nothing else.

Baroness Greenfield gave a sold-out public lecture at the University of South Australia on Wednesday night, having previously worked in Adelaide as one of the South Australian Government's thinkers-in-residence.

"People like me, a baby-boomer, grew up with the television being the new luxury that came into our home," she told 891 ABC Adelaide.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's curator insight, November 20, 4:00 PM

The use of digital technologies is reshaping human brains and the impact on young people must be considered by their parents and educators, a neuroscientist warns.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, November 20, 7:13 PM

We know this and the result should be questioning how we use digital technologies and how they use us.

 These web tools are ideal for creating avatars. There is also the possibility of creating a cartoon out of one's own pictures.

Creating a cartoon out of your real picture is a good way to disguise your real identity while in the same time preserving your own feel and touch.  The web tools below  are really helpful for cartonizing your pictures.

Embedding & Linking SkyDrive files on Moodle

How to embed and link a PowerPoint on Moodle via SkyDrive and how it updates automatically. Can't imaging why anyone would want to listen to me for 14 minutes but here it is.

 

Did this in a school TeachEat and demonstrate how to embed and link a PowerPoint from Skydrive on to a Moodle course.  

 

There is a nice bit at the end that shows the power of the cloud as I update the PowerPoint and the changes are instant...

 

The  added bonus is that it is all free!
