Computer Simulations Can Be as Effective as Direct Observation

ScienceDaily (Feb. 14, 2010) — Students can learn some science concepts just as well from computers simulations as they do from direct observation, new research suggests.

A study found that people who used computer simulations to learn about moon phases understood the concepts just as well -- and in some cases better -- than did those who learned from collecting data from viewing the moon.

SPEAKER: John Medina

John Medina has the rare gift of making science fun and accessible to business leaders. He is an extraordinary speaker -- perhaps one of the most energetic and engaging speakers you will ever encounter. And he has a message that every leader needs to survive and thrive at work.

In a keynote presentation or dynamic workshop, Medina guides you through his 12 Brain Rules, things you should know about how the brain works. With fascinating stories and his characteristic sense of humor, he'll explain:

Right-Handed and Left-Handed People Do Not See the Same Bright Side of Things

ScienceDaily (Feb. 2, 2010) — Despite the common association of "right" with life, correctness, positiveness and good things, and "left" with death, clumsiness, negativity and bad things, recent research shows that most left-handed people hold the opposite association. Thus, left-handers become an interesting case in which conceptual associations as a result of a sensory-motor experience, and conceptual associations that rely on linguistic and cultural norms, are contradictory.

Techniques for Producing Great Conference Programmes

Develop conferences that meet market needs, attract more delegates and sponsorship and increase profits

Scientists Map Brain Pathway for Vocal Learning

ScienceDaily  — Scientists at Duke University Medical Center have identified neurons in the songbird brain that convey the auditory feedback needed to learn a song.

Their research lays the foundation for improving human speech, for example, in people whose auditory nerves are damaged and who must learn to speak without the benefit of hearing their own voices.

Classroom Computers Boost Face-To-Face Learning

 ScienceDaily (May 26, 2009) — Computers have been used for years to facilitate learning at a distance. A new European research programme shows that computers can also enhance collaborative, face-to-face learning and problem solving. In recent years, computer-assisted face-to-face collaboration has become an important part of the workplace, under the rubric of computer supported collaborative work.
