Brain Development in a Hyper-Tech World - Dana Foundation - 4 views

  •  
    The information explosion brought about by the Internet and other modern technological tools has undeniably had positive influences on society. "These are enabling technologies," said Friedlander. "I think their greatest power lies in their ability to enable people to reach out to a world that is much greater than what any child is likely to get in their home or school environment. That's all good and positive."

    The trick, he said, is knowing where to draw the line. "It gets down to a quantitative question: how much is too much? That's where the rubber really meets the road for most people, and that is a really tough question to answer."

    The responsibility for making such decisions often falls on parents, but they may not be equipped, able, or willing to do so. "We always hear the same thing, that it's up to parents to control the use of these things and teach kids how to manage it all," said Grafman. "But in order for them to do this, they have to understand better themselves what they are creating with their children. Many parents today just say, 'here's your computer, put it in your room and do your homework on it,' and that's the last they see of the kid. If that's the case, how much are kids going to listen?"

Writing Prompts that Motivate - 1 views

  •  
    One of many spelling, vocabulary, and writing resources on the Vocabulary and Spelling City site, this page explains, "Asking a child to write about something that matters to him [sic] right now is a powerful motivator. This is where writing prompts come in. Writing prompts are simply ideas or subjects offered as a foundation for students to build a writing assignment on" (¶3, 2011.07.25). It includes tips for preparing writing prompts as well as examples for elementary, middle school, and high school students. Thanks to Cara Whitehead (Learning with Computers) for pointing out this site.

USO EDUCATIVO DE LOS WIKIS - 6 views

  •  
    A partir del 2004, la penetración de servicios Web 2.0 a través de Internet, posibilitó una segunda generación de comunidades basadas en la Web y de servicios residentes en ella; tales como sitios que permiten generar redes sociales que facilitan la creatividad, la colaboración y que ofrezcan a los usuarios la posibilidad de compartir entre ellos contenidos y otros recursos, sin importar su diversidad o ubicación geográfica. Uno de los servicios más exitosos de la Web 2.0 son los denominados Wikis. Basta con mencionar a Wikipedia, la enciclopedia libre y de construcción colectiva, como el ícono de lo que representa las posibilidades de esta tecnología informática en Internet.
