Screen Absorption and “The Organized Mind”

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/blog_landing/public/technology_and_learning_blog_header.jpg?itok=aQthgJ91By Joshua Kim. Does this happen to you? You show up a few minutes early to a meeting, and everyone sitting around the table is absorbed in their various screens. Nobody is talking to each other. Folks are reading e-mail on laptops, iPads, and phones. Everyone is busy checking their calendars, finishing a note, and trying to get caught up. Read more...

Bridging the Gap: Theory and Practice

By Andrea Zellner. As a researcher in an applied field (Ed Psych/Ed Tech, to be precise), I am acutely aware of the pressure for my research be both authentic and easily applicable.

Broadening Out the Free Range Movement
