Blogging Begets Better Brains

Email This Entry

Posted by Zack Lynch

I must recommend a new neurolearning blog that has a strong focus on neurologically-based approaches to learning and learning differences. It is written by Drs. Fernette and Brock Eide who recently posted a great piece on the Brain of the Blogger (Here are the key points)

1. Blogs can promote critical and analytical thinking.
2. Blogging can be a powerful promoter of creative, intuitive, and associational thinking.
3. Blogs promote analogical thinking.
4. Blogging is a powerful medium for increasing access and exposure to quality information.
5. Blogging combines the best of solitary reflection and social interaction.

So why don't you blog?

I got this from a reader who works for our government. Too good not to share:

Why don't I blog?

I have no First Amendment Rights covering anything interesting I might have to say. ; )

thanks for pointing out the fascinating neurolearning blog!
"I have no First Amendment Rights covering anything interesting I might have to say. "

first amendment rights do not cover censorship mutually agreed upon via consensual contracts (as is the case, i can only assume, with government job contracts). alas, your reader's situation is unfortunate but not unreasonable.
