The benefits of learning a foreign language

The benefits of learning a foreign language | www.online - educa.com | Scoop.it
Fewer than 18 percent of Americans report speaking a language other than English, according to U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. He states, “That’s far short of Europe, where 53 percent of citizens speak more than one language. The United States may be the only nation in the world where it is possible to complete high school and college without any foreign language study.”
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

Learning a second language “is an exercise in cognitive problem solving” and is “directly transferable to the area of mathematical skill development.” What’s more, speaking and writing in a second language requires learning multiple ways to express an idea, which in turn improves people’s ability to communicate more effectively in their native language.

Teen brainpower drives tech breakthrough - The Boston Globe

Teen brainpower drives tech breakthrough - The Boston Globe | www.online - educa.com | Scoop.it
A 15-year-old high school sophomore from Westford, Shiva Nathan has earned international renown — and a nice chunk of money — by designing an artificial arm that can be moved around by signals from a person’s brain that are transmitted over a wireless Bluetooth device. For now, the arm only waves from side to side, while its fingers flex in and out. Nathan cannot control it very precisely. But despite its limitations, Nathan’s mechanical arm is winning plenty of praise. At last month’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, his arm won a $5,000 awardfor its innovative use of the Bluetooth radio technology found in most cellular phones. Last year, Nathan won $5,000 worth of electronics gear in a contest sponsored by the US Army and Carnegie Mellon University.
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

Nathan’s idea has also impressed military experts on artificial limbs, such as John Fergason, lead prosthetist at the Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio. Fergason said Bluetooth is currently used to install new software in computerized artificial limbs, but that Nathan has gone much further in finding ways to control the limbs in real time.
