Research from the University of Rennes has concluded that using the Nintendo DS Brain Training game “does no such thing” as reported in The Telegraph. The BBC reports on the Which article about Brain Training.
I am in Bristol for the JISC Pedagogy Experts Meeting.
The aim of the meeting is to inform the group of the current issues and investigations into many of the JISC e-learning Learners’ Experience projects, also to consult the experts own expertise in relation to learners’ experiences.
The meeting will also explore implications of these issues for teaching practice, organisational strategies and for technical development.
The group will also be consulted on the direction and priorities for learner centered development in the future.
This is very much a meeting and a discussion and not a series of presentations with a few questions.
Personally I will be on a panel this afternoon looking at how can we help to meet learners’ changing needs and expectations?
I will be adding more stuff over the day (fingers crossed).
