Beyond the Far Cliffs - Thinking Clearly

Beyond the Far Cliffs - Thinking Clearly | Thinking Clearly and Analytically | Scoop.it

"All the problems of the world could be settled easily if men were only willing to think. The trouble is that men very often resort to all sorts of devices in order not to think, because thinking is such hard work."   (Thomas Watson, IBM)

The Problem with "Learning Styles"

The Problem with "Learning Styles" | Thinking Clearly and Analytically | Scoop.it
Just because a notion is popular, however, doesn’t make it true. A recent review of the scientific literature on learning styles found scant evidence to clearly support the idea that outcomes are best when instructional techniques align with individuals’ learning styles. In fact, there are several studies that contradict this belief. It is clear that people have a strong sense of their own learning preferences (e.g., visual, kinesthetic, intuitive), but it is less clear that these preferences matter.

Avoid The Detrimental Effects of an Overactive Stress Response

Avoid The Detrimental Effects of an Overactive Stress Response | Thinking Clearly and Analytically | Scoop.it
SharpBrains.com reporter Alvaro Fernandez, interviewed Dr. Serin to find out more about stress and how we can avoid its detrimental effects. Sharpbrains is a recognized website that tracks health and wellness applications of Brain Science. NEUROPSYCHOLOGIST AMY SERIN, CO-FOUNDER OF BRAINNOVATIONS WINNER ‘THE TOUCHPOINT SOLUTION’, WOULD LIKE TO SEE EVERYONE AVOID THE DETRIMENTAL EFFECTS OF AN OVERACTIVE STRESS RESPONSE. DR. SERIN, WHAT SURPRISED YOU THE MOST FROM THE JUDGES’ QUESTIONS AND FEEDBACK DURING THE BRAINNOVATIONS PITCH CONTEST? It was great that at least one of the judges had already purchased and started using our product so we could delve into the nuances of our technology quickly. And I was thrilled that all judges saw the possibilities to create significant global impact. IN A NUTSHELL, WHAT IS THE CORE IDEA BEHIND TOUCHPOINTS? Too many people suffer too much stress, often leading to sleeplessness, cravings, anger, poor focus, poor performance, and feeling overwhelmed. TouchPoints aim at reducing stress by delivering haptic microvibrations via wearable devices worn on both sides of the body. The bi-lateral alternating stimulation (BLAST) technology can help reduce stress significantly while the wearer multi-tasks at home, work, or school. The key is that our wearables don’t simply give information or cues — they can actually help reduce stress. WHEN AND HOW DID THE IDEA COME TO YOU? The idea evolved over the last decade while I was practicing neuropsychology… Read the rest of the article on SharpBrains.com >

How Critical Thinking and Media Literacy Efforts Are ‘Backfiring’ Today 

How Critical Thinking and Media Literacy Efforts Are ‘Backfiring’ Today  | Thinking Clearly and Analytically | Scoop.it
Few would challenge the value of helping students develop critical thinking and information literacy. But if such skills are encouraged simply as a reactionary means to challenge knowledge, says danah boyd, the future may look even more chaotic and grim.

Speaking at the morning keynote on the third day of SXSW EDU, boyd, a researcher at Microsoft and the founder and president of Data & Society, offered this provocative observation: “Many of the forms of critical thinking that we’ve introduced into American education are backfiring right now.”

Touching on matters ranging from Russian propaganda efforts to Netflix, history to philosophy, boyd’s intellectually provocative talk raised plenty of deep questions around media and manipulation. But she also admitted there are few clear solutions.
