Tapping the brain’s magic

Tapping the brain’s magic
With traditional educational methods – its curriculum and its focus on examinations – students quickly lose motivation and interest for science and its magic. The human brain is truly extraordinary. A healthy brain has some 200 billion neurons. The conscious mind controls our brain for only five per cent of the day, whereas the subconscious mind has control of our thoughts 95 per cent of the time. A human being has 70,000 thoughts per day - Natasa Pantovic A human being has 70,000 thoughts per day. Somewhere within our brain we have a potential for higher mathematics, complex physics, art, and amazing richness of thoughts, feeling, and sensations. However, although we are mostly controlled by our brains, we are yet to learn how to best use its potential. In her book My Stroke of Insight, brain scientist Jill Bolte Taylor, who recovered from a massive left hemisphere blood clot, talks about her experiences during the eight years it took her to completely recover. www.artof4elements.com

Internet and privacy: Is a marketing Big Brother always watching? Online ads can build awareness and influence the decision-making process. However, the online ads dig into once privacy much more than anyone could have ever imagined. When 124 most loyal customers of a Manhattan restaurant received a discount for a burger SMS offer, they must have loved the fact that they are recognised and appreciated by their favourite restaurant. Those 124 “loyalists” re-tweeted this offer to over 40,000 people in their social networks. The restaurant was that evening packed full. On the other hand, these 124 individuals were tracked, observed and specifically market targeted, without their knowledge or consent. Divergent thinking Musicians are more likely to use both hemispheres of their brain and more likely to use divergent thinking in their thought processes. Divergent thinking is essential for creativity. It is the ability to see lots of possible ways to interpret a question and lots of possible answers to it. It is important to vary thought processes so that children use both convergent and divergent thinking - Natasa Pantovic

Shifting education goals Education should teach children how to ask appropriate questions, how to analyse a problem, stimulate a desire to learn, and flexibility to consider different points of view. One of the biggest problems of education today is that the ‘factory model’ of teaching: the top-down approach and the rewards-and-punishments ap­proach, limit students’ ability to contribute with their imagination and creativity. In the Finnish educational model, active learning is taken seriously. Love Mindfulness? Is Mindfulness for You? [Article] Love Mindfulness Is Mindfulness for You?

Best practice for engaging the customers online In an ideal world the marketing cycle will start with the customers’ needs analysis, is constantly influenced by customers and will change as fast as the customers change their mind-set. However, during the last decade we have become masters of the “creating the need” game, abandoning this important first step. Listening to customers is often replaced by a marketing effort to convince the consumers that they absolutely need the advertised product, service or offer. “My product or service is truly the best and truly unique” became a very difficult message to convey within the advertisement clutter we live in. The internet is giving marketers an interesting opportunity to once again start listening to their customers. The new marketing model that is emerging from the use of internet is interaction driven and uses the customers’ feedback as a wrapper around all its activities.
