My inquiry project is on how people multitask when using computers and it affecting your brain. I’ve looked at many of the source nuggets from other people and I think they’re projects are going really good. I found one topic very interesting and her source is reliable as well.  I went through all her sources and you… Read More

My second source is another article I found, but not from the VCU library database. “But what if some people have a special gift for multitasking? The Stanford researchers compared groups of people based on their tendency to multitask and their belief that it helps their performance. They found that heavy multitaskers—those who multitask a… Read More

My first source is called “The Digital Revolution and Adolescent Brain Evolution. My topic was on the affect of digital age/technology on our brains, but it wasn’t too specific. I was going to change the research prompt to something about texting and/or microblogging as it effects the parts of our brain that control writing, which Professor Becker recommended.… Read More

I liked going back and taking my time and rereading all the articles. I think this time around, it was different reading them, because my perspective has kind of changed. The concepts I choose were way we think, machine/tools, changes, personal meaning, knowledge. I like the concepts I choose, and many other people choose a few… Read More

I’m not sure if I did the synthesis visual right or not. But, I showed how Bush, Nelson, and Engelbert connected them on 5 of the conceptual bases to one another. The main topic was how technology influences the world and the 5 conceptual bases were machines/tools, way we think, personal meaning, knowledge, and the changes.… Read More

“The first attempt at designing this metamedium (the FLEX machine4 ) occurred in 1967–69. Much of the hardware and software was successful from the standpoint of computer science state-of-the-art research, but lacked sufficient expressive power to be useful to an ordinary user. At that time we became interested in focusing on children as our “user… Read More

I thought I had my final inquiry project topic all figured out, but I wasn’t really getting the research I was looking for. so, all weekend I’ve been looking at different topics. I am studying the affect of digital age/technology on our brains because I want to find out what parts of the brain get affected, like just… Read More

I was exploring with all the themes and everything. I was going to change it, but I like the theme I have right now. Then, I changed the background to a picture of the beach, it looked amazing, but you couldn’t read my posts. So, I changed the background to a light turquoise/blueish, but I… Read More

I wanted to choose from a couple of nuggets, but I choose this one…. “It is intended to fill a crying need. Lots of everyday people have asked me where they can learn about computers, and I have had to say nowhere. Most of what is written about computers for the layman is either unreadable… Read More
