Wissenschaftlicher Aufsatz aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Pädagogik - Medienpädagogik, einseitig bedruckt, Note: 1,7, Technische Universität Chemnitz (Pädagogik des E-Learning und der Neuen Meidien), Veranstaltung: Instruktionspsychologische Aspekte des E-Learning, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In vielen Situationen des Alltags sowie des Arbeitslebens müssen Menschen mit verschiedensten Medien interagieren, um für sie relevante Informationen erhalten und somit ihre jeweiligen Ziele erreichen zu können. Dabei kann es vor allem in Situationen, in welchen die Aneignung von neuem Wissen notwendig ist, hilfreich sein, wenn dabei die durch das verwendete Medium vermittelten Inhalte an die kognitive Architektur und damit an die mentalen Ressourcen des Lernenden angepasst werden. Die Betrachtung verschiedener Anwendungsbereiche zeigt, dass die Berücksichtigung der vorhandenen kognitiven Ressourcen vor allem bei der Entwicklung von multimedialen Lernumgebungen, nicht nur hilfreich, sondern von enormer Bedeutung für die Wissensvermittlung ist. Aufgrund dieser Bedeutung für die Optimierung von Lernprozessen gab und gibt es nach wie vor starke Bestrebungen, Mittel und Wege zu finden, um die kognitive Belastung während des Lernens zuverlässig und präzise vorhersagen zu können.
An intriguing blend of science and sports that explores how some of the world´s greatest athletes are utilizing the last frontier of performance-enhancing technology - the mental mapping and engineering of their own brains - for peak performance and what it means for the future of athleticism, sports, and the rest of us. Moneyball showed how statistics were revolutionizing baseball. The Sports Gene revealed the role genetics play in sports. Now, Head in the Game examines the next evolution: how mental engineering - the manipulation of the cognitive processes of the brain - can make gifted athletes even better. For years technology - from EEG (electroencephalogram) to fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging) to video games, tablets, and personal data collection devices - have been used with soldiers to understand their physical and mental functioning. Touching on brain functionality vital to sports - both the ´´hard´´ (coordination, stimuli processing, functional memory, decision making, load processing) and the ´´soft´´ (emotion regulation, visualization, psychology, mindfulness) - this tech is now being adopted by scores of championship franchises and top athletes - including scrappy underdogs forced to innovate and elite players looking for an advantage. Star NFL quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Tom Brady, the NBA´s Kyle Korver, and Olympic volleyball champion Kerri Walsh are using mental engineering to up their game. It´s not luck that has transformed the San Antonio Spurs into a formidable force - it´s science, Sneed demonstrates. As mental engineering becomes widespread - taking athletes who are already freaks of nature and making them better - the impact on the multibillion-dollar sports industry will be dramatic on players, managers, trainers, owners, and even fans. Interviewing athletes and coaches, visiting training camps and sports science firms, Brandon Sneed offers a firsthand, on-the-ground look at th... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nicholas Tecosky.

Learn about the process of German Reunification with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. Reunification in Germany was a slow process. The country was divided between the communist East and the capitalist West from the end of World War Two in 1945 until the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. To understand how momentous a step reunification in Germany was, it is necessary to go back to the start of the division in 1945. When World War Two ended, the four Allied powers of the US, Britain, France and the Soviet Union divided Germany between themselves. This was to share the load of helping a war-ravaged country rebuild itself. The US, Britain and France were given land in the west of Germany and the Soviet Union was given land in the east of Germany. Due to the influence of the occupying forces, over time West Germany developed into a capitalist state and East Germany developed into a communist state.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming is a well-established mental model that helps you to channel your thoughts and feelings toward achieving your goals. It is a set of communicative techniques designed to help you better understand the importance of the unconscious mind and how it effects conscious decisions. In this book, some of the core principals of NLP will be explained and many of the techniques that are said to make the magic happen will be talked about. The model itself can be viewed as a guide to living a certain way, or it can be used to compliment your own philosophy. You could also use it to convince people of just about anything. The key to using NLP effectively is perseverance. You can try and you can fail, but the positivity that is needed to pick yourself back up again is sometimes a heavy load, so NLP offers solutions for this as well. You will learn how to use it in your work and social life to get the most out of each experience you live. Whether it is persuading others that you are the best in the business, giving yourself the edge at work or at school, helping others to achieve their dreams, or whatever else you want your life to entail, NLP is a step-by-step guide on how to do that. 1.
