Electronic Arts crea una página para asesorar sobre cómo usar los juegos electrónicos en el aula Por Carmen Jané/El Periódico de Cataluña "Los videojuegos no son un juguete, y el 70% de jugadores tienen más de 18 años, pero fomentan una serie de habilidades y se pueden aprovechar en educación", explica Rafael Martínez-Avial, director general de Electronic Arts España, filial de la mayor multinacional de videojuegos del mundo.

Game Theory, Popular Science On test day for my Behavioral Ecology class at UCLA, I walked into the classroom bearing an impossibly difficult exam. Rather than being neatly arranged in alternate rows with pen or pencil in hand, my students sat in one tight group, with notes and books and laptops open and available. They were poised to share each other's thoughts and to copy the best answers. As I distributed the tests, the students began to talk and write. All of this would normally be called cheating. But it was completely OK by me. Who in their right mind would condone and encourage cheating among UCLA juniors and seniors? The students began to talk and write. Nevertheless, I'm a realist. Much of evolution and natural selection can be summarized in three short words: "Life is games." So last quarter I had an intriguing thought while preparing my Game Theory lectures. Gasps filled the room. "None," I replied. They could surf the Web. But did the students themselves realize this?

Researchers Harness Brain Game Data The activities of cognitive training enthusiasts give insight into the effects of lifestyle choices and age on the brain’s performance. FLICKR, HEY PAUL STUDIOSScientists from California’s Lumos Labs, maker of Web-based brain training games, are gathering data from online users to make connections between cognitive performance, lifestyle choices, and aging, according to a paper published last week (June 20) in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience. For tasks testing memory and arithmetic skills—each completed by around 127,000 to 162,000 users who took a lifestyle survey—the researchers found that high performance correlated with drinking one or two alcoholic beverages per day and sleeping around 7 hours a night. The researchers also analyzed data from the subset of users who completed individual tasks at least 25 times, in order to measure the relationship between learning ability and age. Around 23,000 to 107,000 users per task qualified as repeat users.
