Parenting Style May Worsen Toddler Aggression | Psych Central News - 3 views

  •  
    New longitudinal study.
    "University of Montreal researchers now believe parental behavior may play a factor in the link between verbal frustrations and aggression.

    Physical aggression in toddlers includes frequent hitting, kicking, and a tendency to bite or push others.

    "Since the 1940s, studies have observed an association between physical aggression problems and language problems among children and adolescents. It was also demonstrated around ten years ago that physical aggression problems arise in early childhood when language develops."

Distracted to Learn? | Psych Central News - 6 views

  • It was as if those who were denied the same degree of distraction during testing as they experienced during learning suffered a disadvantage.
  • In the end it didn’t seem to matter what the distraction was during recall as long as subjects had had a distraction during learning. Everybody who had been distracted in both learning and recall performed better than those who were distracted while learning but undistracted during recall.
  • There just had to be the same degree of distraction at both times.

  • Another task is to figure out what might be going on in the brain to allow divided attention to be a boost for recall, rather than a hindrance for learning
  •  
    Surprising new research may rewrite learning theory as Brown University scientists contend that distractions do not necessarily impede the learning process of a motor task.

    Investigators discovered that if attention was as divided during recall of a motor task as it was during learning the task, people performed as if there were no distractions at either stage.

    Thus, the real issue is that inconsistent distraction can impair our recollection of the task. As long as our attention is as divided when we have to recall a motor skill as it was when we learned it, we'll do just fine, say the researchers.

Flipping the Non-Flippable Classes | Edutopia - 9 views

  •  
    Can you flip classes like PE, dance, and elementary education? This article from Jon Bergmann and Aaron Sams shows you how. For example, I have some girls who want to flip cheerleading practice and are designing an app to do just that. Instead of learning dances at practice, why not upload the videos and music and have the girls learn it before practice. We're currently going to build this into the app for the school. AWESOME.

ProtonMail - Encrypted Email, Made Simple - 5 views

  •  
    While gmail has added some encryption features, it isn't really enough of anything. ProtonMail was recommended by a recent Forbes article for having the highest level of security of any email service. If you need to send bank draft information, w-9's or other information, it makes sense to have one of these accounts. They simply charge for extra storage.
