We are living in an extremely exciting time in terms of science and technology. Things that have always been considered science fiction are becoming normal day-to-day components of our lives. And while we have been seeing invention after breakthrough over and over in the last couple of decades, this next ten years is going to blow everything else out of the water. The awesome thing about all these scientific discoveries it that they create technology that allows us to make more breakthroughs even faster. Our ability to innovate is increasing exponentially as the years go by. To give you an idea of the magnitude of this reality, here are 10 amazing innovations to different sectors of life. 1) Bio Technology Bionic Hand controlled by brain signals Okay, it doesn’t let you crush rocks like you would think, BUT it does allow people without fingers to have fully functional hands that can pick up and handle delicate objects. 2) Architecture Revolving Tower in Dubai Speed Size and Usability Trending

And when it comes to young learners, strategies for optimizing brain development are essential for educators and parents. Young students up to age 5 are uniquely poised to absorb an incredible amount of information, and while their brains are growing and forming at rapid rates, they also need to feel secure and calm to optimize positive brain development, said Pam Schiller, a curriculum specialist and freelance author specializing in early childhood education, during an edWeb webinar. Educators and those who work with young children likely use most of the following 10 strategies, Schiller said, and each strategy is easy to implement or augment.
