There are many benefits to using video in education as shown in several decades of research. Salman Khan in 'Let's use video to reinvent education' 20 mins describes the transformative way video can impact on teaching and learning and encourages teachers to consider the flipped classroom model where learners can digest lecture content at their pace and explore content more deeply during class time. See The Art of Educational videos by Macquarie University for the breadth of approaches to making effective videos.
Mean Girls was released ten years ago today, which is a thing that should make us all feel very, very old. Hey, anybody know what happened to those three guys? There was no Radio Disney to market to us in our infancy, no Nickelodeon stars waiting in an incubator to become pop stars, no Kidz Bop to translate American lyrics into child.
The 7-item Game Addiction Scale GAS has been validated under standard confirmatory factor analysis and exhibits good psychometric properties. Whether this scale satisfies the necessary conditions for consideration by item response theory IRT modeling remains unknown. However, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition DSM-5 recently proposed criteria, in its section 3, to define internet gaming disorder IGD to promote research on this possible condition.
Flies provide an important model for studying complex behavior due to the plethora of genetic tools available to researchers in this field. Studying locomotor behavior in Drosophila melanogaster relies on the ability to be able to quantify changes in motion during or in response to a given task. For this reason, a high-resolution video tracking system, such as the one we describe in this paper, is a valuable tool for measuring locomotion in real-time.
While sexually transmitted diseases STDs affect individuals of all ages, STDs take a particularly heavy toll on young people.

The resources on this page provide information about the impact of STDs on youth as well as resources for reaching this population.

Abnormal visual experience during a sensitive period of development disrupts neuronal circuitry in the visual cortex and results in abnormal spatial vision or amblyopia. Here we examined whether playing video games can induce plasticity in the visual system of adults with amblyopia. Using a cross-over experimental design first 20 h: occlusion therapy, and the next 40 h: videogame therapywe can conclude that the improvement cannot be explained simply by eye patching alone.
