Decided to do away with Power Point presentations during your lectures? Urged your students to memorize more in order to remember more? If the answer is no, you may want to rethink your notions of psychology and its place in the learning environment.
The importance of stupidity in scientific research I recently saw an old friend for the first time in many years. We had been Ph.D. students at the same time, both studying science, although in different areas. She later dropped out of graduate school, went to Harvard Law School and is now a senior lawyer for a major environmental organization. At some point, the conversation turned to why she had left graduate school. The High Cost of Neuromyths in Education Valid neuroscience research is an increasingly useful resource for guiding interventions in education. But not all "neurocontent" is created equal. With the overall rise in accessible education content has come a rise in the niche of neurological educational content -- content developed for educators based on how the brain works.
Animage, musée numérique de l'image fixe à l'image animée August 28, 1955 Fourteen-year-old African-American Emmett Till is brutally murdered after reportedly flirting with a white woman while visiting relatives in Mississippi. For the first time, both black and white reporters cover the trial epitomizing "one of the most shocking and enduring stories of the twentieth century." The white defendants, Roy Bryant and J.W. Milam, are acquitted by an all-white jury in only 67 minutes; later they describe in full detail to Look magazine (which paid them $4,000) how they killed Till. His mother insists on an open casket funeral, and the powerful image of his mutilated body sparks a strong reaction across the country and the world.
Article Archive This E-Collection contains reports of scientific advances made during the second (2005-2010) and third (2010-2015) phases of the the 15-year Protein Structure Initiative Project. It also includes reports on work conducted by the broader structural biology community during this period. It consists of articles about research and technical highlights written by the Nature Publishing Group (NPG), and Featured Systems written by David Goodsell (The Scripps Research Institute). Research Themes - Articles by NPG provide insights about newly discovered structure-function relationships that help us understand how biological systems work.
Brain-Based Learning Techniques to Try in Your Classroom Brain-based learning isn’t a new concept, but it’s enjoying renewed attention thanks to the teacher accountability movement begun by President George W. Bush and continued by President Barack Obama. In a nutshell, teachers who use brain-based techniques don their “neuroscientist” hats and focus on creating experiences that cater to the inner workings of their students’ brains. The result: better learning experiences and better retention. Hundreds of different variables affect how well your students digest information. See Which Health Supplements Aren't Backed By Science There are a lot of fad diets and articles out there that tell you which commonplace and obscure supplements you should be adding to your diet. But how do you discern the genuine from the bullsh*t? This graph by David McCandless, which he posted to visual.ly in 2012, ranks hundreds of health supplements based on the amount of scientific research backing their big claims. The graph only used data from human trials that used a random placebo-control method. Supplements with the strongest evidence backing them are placed at the top. Working your way down the graph, the supplements are backed less and less by conclusive evidence.
Nicholas Negroponte: Nanobots in Your Brain Could Be the Future of Learning Transcript Nicholas Negroponte: I gave a talk at the first TED in 1984 that was two hours long and it had five predictions in it that more or less all came true. And people called them predictions but they really weren’t predictions. They were extrapolations. Colors of India Posted in Travel on Saturday, July 31st, 2010 at 9:52 am After returning back from a well anticipated one-month trip to India, I realized what an impact this country had left on me. The second I got off the plane back home, I immediately noticed the luxuries that we all take for granted. What is Life?

How memories form and how we lose them - Catharine Young Memory: It isn’t just something, it's everything. And although scientists have pursued and puzzled over it for centuries, a definitive explanation of the actual memory process still eludes us--partly because our brain is so incredibly complex (it is made up of approximately 90 billion cells after all!). Let’s take a look at the basic neuroanatomy elements, which makes memory possible. Brain cells, called neurons are the core component of the nervous system and have the remarkable ability to communicate with each other and transfer information. They are able to accomplish through a process called synaptic transmission.

My… OSAMR Model – When Tech Makes it Worse The SAMR model is a way to determine the level at which you are using technology. S – Substitution is when you do the same task but with technology.A – Augmentation is when you’re doing the same task but the technology provides some level of improvement. Usually this is an improvement in workflows.M – Modification is when you use technology to do things differently. The technology usage improves the learning outcome.R – Redefinition is when using technology allows you to teach or learn in a new way that previously would have been impossible or nearly impossible.
