    Importance of Video Education in Schools

    (gentle electronic music) – The education system’s completely broken. Sitting in a desk, taking information from one specific source is so incredibly antiquated and then to be able to show that I understand this by filling in a bubble is just laughable at this point in our world. Visual storytelling is the way that’s all gonna be cracked. Chicago actually has the best network of media education in the nation. – Film making allows you to tell a story. A lot of times, people can’t verbally articulate that, but they could tell that story through video. (laughs) That’s so fresh. Like, most of my students are visual learners, so I…

    Three of a Kind: Triplets bring their Rochester story full circle

    [Sandra Gelb] At 29 weeks, there’s really no viability, so it’s a very scary time. [Jay Gelb] Matthew was a pound and a half, Nicole was two pounds, and Robert was the big boy at two and a half pounds. Rushed him up to the NICU, which is the neonatal intensive care unit. We were there for three months. [Matthew Gelb] I definitely think that it was stressful for everyone. Our parents were worried whether or not we were going to make it. [Nicole Gelb] It makes me really appreciate life and the opportunity I’ve been given and the two people I’ve been giving it with. [Jay] Having them kind…

    How to Balance Video Games and Studying – College Info Geek

    As you can probably tell from my backdrop and my entire room, I am a fan of playing video games, but I have a pretty complicated relationship with video games and I can illustrate that on something I like to call the “Work/Play Compulsion Scale”. As you can see here, it looks like a teeter totter and if I had my priorities in order and acted in the way that I wanted to act on a daily basis, then I would work for a certain amount of hours and then play video games for a certain amount of hours and I would be nicely placed in the middle. Unfortunately I…

    How can cognitive science inform the future of education? | Lindsay Portnoy

    We have this dichotomy in the land of education whereby we have all of this beautiful research; we have decades, if not centuries, of research on how people learn — which is ultimately cognitive science. And then we have the applied practice of what is happening in schools. And there is a tremendous disconnect. We talk about ideas like information processing and you think about a computer or your mind is a machine. We understand how children learn best. We understand how children learn and all of us learn through experience. That’s cognitive science. The sociocultural tools that we have in the world around us is something that Lev Vygotsky…
