Visual-Spatial Learners

Ph.D. Welcome to the wonderful world of the visual-spatial learner! We’re excited to share with you information about this important learning style, and to share with you about recognizing, assessing, teaching, counseling and living with visual-spatial learners. Many teachers try very hard to accommodate the various learning styles of their students, but this can be an overwhelming task, as some of the learning styles inventories and models are quite complicated. As a former classroom teacher myself, I know that there are a limited number of hours in the day, and even the most dedicated teacher cannot plan for all the different learning styles and intelligences of his or her students. The main difference between the two groups was that highly gifted children also excelled at the auditory-sequential items, whereas children who were brighter than their IQ scores had marked auditory and sequential weaknesses. How your brain sees virtual you - life - 06 November 2009. As players who stay up all night fighting imaginary warriors demonstrate, slipping into the skin of an avatar, and inhabiting a virtual world can be riveting stuff.

But to what extent does your brain regard your virtual self as you? Brain scans of avid players of the hugely popular online fantasy world World of Warcraft reveal that areas of the brain involved in self-reflection and judgement seem to behave similarly when someone is thinking about their virtual self as when they think about their real one. Disentangling how the brain regards avatars versus real individuals may help explain why some people spend large chunks of their life playing immersive online games, says Kristina Caudle, a social neuroscientist at Dartmouth University in Hanover, New Hampshire, who led the study along with her adviser William Kelley. "It's hard to imagine from an outsider's perspective what might drive someone to spend 30 hours a week immersed in a completely imaginary world," she says.

Kids between the ages of 8 and 18 spend 11.5 hours a day using technology — whether that’s computers, television, mobile phones, or video games – and usually more than one at a time.

How Technology Wires the Learning Brain

That’s a big chunk of their 15 or 16 waking hours. But does that spell doom for the next generation? Not necessarily, according to Dr. Gary Small, a neuroscientist and professor at UCLA, who spoke at the Learning & the Brain Conference last week. “Young people are born into technology, and they’re used to using it 24/7,” Small said. “The technology train has left. The downside of such immersion in technological devices, he said, is that they’re not having conversations, looking people in the eye, or noticing verbal cues. But that’s not the headline here. Video games, for example, aren’t just about repetitive tasks – many of them have built-in social components that allow kids to communicate. Effects of immersion on short term spatial memory. Magnetbrenda. 051. 30-ACADIA. Journal. Slick implies a certain type of legitimacy and virtual reality is slick like wet ice.

Location It was the location that attracted my attention. Virtual reality was not a subject that I was particularly drawn to. (1) I am not a great fan of games, I am not attracted to slick vector based graphics and it seemed to me that VRML/Web3D was just more cumbersome tech-hype. VRML alias Web 3D Web 3D/VRML, The Fifth International Conference on Virtual Reality Modeling Language & 3D Web Technologies Was held February 21-24, 2000 at the Hyatt Monterey, Monterey, California Hosted by The Web3D Consortium The idea of VRML/Web3D is to enact a ubiquitous functioning method to perpetuate navigable three dimensional illusionistic environments via the Internet. The program was devoted to methods and techniques of developing and promoting a useable format for bringing illusionistic three dimensional navigable environments into more accessible and widespread use on the World Wide Web.

Karel Dudesek, Vienna, Austria. Réalité virtuelle : l'immersion passe aussi par la mimétisation. Manipuler des objets avec des mains virtuelles qui ressemblent aux siennes plutôt qu'avec des curseurs rend les participants plus réactifs et plus impliqués à l'expérience qui leur est proposée.

Virtual Reality - Future

This can be used to create illusions (imaginary worlds) that can be simulated on a computer. Various technologies, especially computer games that utilize VR will incrementally reshape how we view society. Definition "The ultimate dream is to merge the real world and the virtual world into a totally seamless experience" -- PhotoSynth project Development of simulation, rendering, VR input and output technologies will have wider implications than just better virtual environments.
