Social Media's Effect on Learning - Digits - WSJ - 0 views

  • Adults must be socially stimulated to learn, which is why language retention is usually only successful for adults when they are immersed with other language-speakers. Bilingual people “build new bridges” in the brain, said Dr. Kuhl, and their brains are constantly adapting and reshuffling data as they translate.
  • “Bilingual people aren’t cognitively smarter, but they are more cognitively flexible,” she added. “Practice at constant switching improves an aspect of their cognitive abilities. They become more facile at adjusting to new situations and inventing new situations.”
  • This is much like what people do when they’re updating their Twitter status, instant-messaging friends, or answering text messages and emails while they’re doing something else. Dr. Kuhl said this multitasking, where people are stimulating new patterns of sequential processing, could then reap the same benefits as bilingualism.

Languages smarten up your brain - Guardian Weekly - 1 views

  • Now a study published by the European Commission reveals that learning an additional language such as English may bring benefits that go beyond the ability to use the language itself. This report has implications for why, when and how we teach and learn English as a second or foreign ­language.
  • One of the significant findings for English language teaching is that changes in the brain’s electrical activity may occur much earlier than previously thought.
  • this study suggests that changes in the brain may start even in the earlier stages of language learning.

  • Another cluster concerns enhanced mental flexibility.
  • The benefits reported include enhanced capacity for learning whereby knowledge of languages can lead to superior memory function, especially short-term “working” memory.
  • Most of the advantages ­described support overall competence-building for life and work in modern, information-rich, internet environments.
  • Enhanced problem-solving capability is also reported.
  • Greater understanding of how language functions and is used to achieve specific goals in life acts as the fourth cluster.
  • Finally the study reports on research that links knowledge of languages to a slowdown of age-related mental diminishment such as certain forms of dementia.
  • The cognitive neurosciences stress the need for powerful learning environments, and yet not enough of our language education is spent encouraging learners to engage in higher-order thinking about meaningful content that fires up the brain.

    Most people learn languages to help them communicate. Now a study of recent research into brain function reveals that students could be gaining a lot more from their pursuit of linguistic skills, says David Marsh

[Sm]all things considered by r.vuorikari: Impact of ICT use on educational performance - 0 views

  • Note, in-school use did not yield any significant impact :/ More interestingly, out-of-school use of ICT for learning purposes had a positive correlation (r=0.520, p= 0.00) with cognitive domain of educational performance, which shows good news for informal context of learning.
  •  
    Informal learning's value confirmed: out-of-school ICT use is connected to cognitive educational performance, while in-school ICT use is not.
