Betsy_Ch.5_Strickland_Q

This question is close to what Taco was saying with how we learn to read/interpret differnt symbols.

Strickland says, "We shift differently, we censor differently, we move differently, to sound, to text, to image, and to animation. Today, perforce, we are learning to oscillate differently, in new 'ratios..'" With this change in ratios is our brain really keeping up? I'm not a brain expert, however I would enjoy some brain research to see if brains are changing along with the technology to keep up. Is it that kids now, who are growing up with computers are faster because they can interpret faster?

How is our brain adapting to these new faster technologies?

I am no brain expert myself but I'm not afraid to answer the question. I don;t think that because kids are growing up with computers are faster. I think its because they just have the motivation to be faster. Anyone can keep up and adapt if they put their minds to it. I think they have the potential to be smarter because they are in a world of technology.

I would say it is not brain adaptation or evolution but more new methods of brina coding.

My son is picking up things that took me for ever to learn mostly because it is what he learned to do first.

He can't churn butter though.

I think this happens with every generation, but this goes back to the thing we talked about a couple weeks ago, so I won't bother the class discusing it again.

well i will pose a question.. while children are growing up in a technological advanced soceity..

Will this make their(childrens) brain slower when responding to non technological problems of real life?

like working out a physics or mathematical question? analytical reasoning? english?!

The first important thing to build computer systems or video games is how the systems can serve the intuition of human beings.

I think we've learned and been influenced by many things through our lives, so we've lost our intuition.
However, the kids are still acting and reacting on instinct, so they are more fit for learning things under the circumstance.

i agree with Donggeol, sometimes our education hinder us adaptation, especially in digital era.
