Hollywood, PlayStation & the Brain – Live
What does the latest in neuroscience tell us about the short-term and long-term effects on neurology and behavior?
Love them or hate them, watching movies/ playing games allow us to learn at light-speed. That means, using them as a tool in teaching is a no-brainer. Every day we see how the medium dictates what we believe and how it influences behavior for better and for worse. Our future is dependent upon the “viewers” learning how to verify accuracy, and the future of learning depends upon the willingness to harness what engages. I don’t like that this is better than traditional, but if we use it they get it faster we we maximize instruction time. Writing, reading, math, speaking using games/TV/movie/documentary could revolutionize learning!
