Using Just 10% of Your Brain? Think Again-Neuromyths

Using Just 10% of Your Brain? Think Again-Neuromyths | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Popular neuromyths about how we learn are creating confusion in the classroom... "No, you do not, in fact, use just 10% of your brain, and "learning styles" make no difference in the classroom. Psychology professor Christopher Chabris discusses these and other "neuromyths" with WSJ's Gary Rosen."

The nature of collective intelligence

Digital data stem from our own personal and social cognitive processes and thus express them in one way or another. But we still don’t have any scientific tools to make sense of the data flows produced by online creative conversations at the scale of the digital medium as a whole.

DropTask Turns Your Tasks Into an Awesome Venn Diagram of Productivity

DropTask Turns Your Tasks Into an Awesome Venn Diagram of Productivity | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

By Whitson Gordon

 

"Managing your tasks is a boring but necessary chore. DropTask changes the way you view your to-dos by mapping it out in a visual, drag-and-drop interface perfect for viewing the stuff you have to do, especially if you work with others.

 

"DropTask is incredibly intuitive, and while it can seem a little weird at first—not to mention space-inefficient—it can be pretty handy if you're managing larger projects. In fact, where it really shows its stuff is when you work with other people. If you sign your entire team up for DropTask, you can assign tasks or groups of tasks to different people with just a flick of the mouse, making it really easy to dole out responsibilities. Check out the video above to see it in action, or click the link below to try it out."

Well, it's not exactly Venn diagrams that DropTask allows you to create, but this is a very intuitive and visual way to organize tasks, especially multi-step tasks or if you, or your team, has numerous things to do. Nice free app.

Thank you Jim for sharing.

How The Brain Rewires Itself

How The Brain Rewires Itself | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it


"FOR DECADES, THE PREVAILING DOGMA IN neuroscience was that the adult human brain is essentially immutable, hardwired, fixed in form and function, so that by the time we reach adulthood we are pretty much stuck with what we have. Yes, it can create (and lose) synapses, the connections between neurons that encode memories and learning. And it can suffer injury and degeneration. But this view held that if genes and development dictate that one cluster of neurons will process signals from the eye and another cluster will move the fingers of the right hand, then they'll do that and nothing else until the day you die. There was good reason for lavishly illustrated brain books to show the function, size and location of the brain's structures in permanent ink.ut research in the past few years has overthrown the dogma. In its place has come the realization that the adult brain retains impressive powers of "neuroplasticity"--the ability to change its structure and function in response to experience."

Summary by Accomplished Teacher

 

"Autonomy, mastery and purpose drive motivation, writes National Board Certified Teacher David B. Cohen. In his response to a blog post by Larry Ferlazzo, Cohen writes that understanding motivation can help English teachers improve their craft. "Purpose may be the most essential of the three components of motivation," he writes. "The more we understand and believe in the purpose of a task or challenge, the more we are willing to persevere, and even relinquish some autonomy."
