Un bel articolo dell'altro ieri di Alessandro D'Avenia sull'educazione

Trentacinque minuti per crescere (Corriere della Sera)

Mai come oggi l’educazione dispone di così tanti studi e mezzi, eppure mai come oggi educare sembra esser diventato difficile. Un paradosso che ricorda un apologo di Borges.

Wie viel Manipulation ist akzeptabel?
Schon beängstigend wie kaputt unser Gehirn ist und wie viel Geld in die Erforschung gesteckt wird um es gezielt zu manipulieren. Und dies sind ja keine neuen Anstrengungen, diese gibt es ja schon seit Jahrzehnten.

An interesting study about psychological patterns of millennials (Dec. 2017)

Conclusion
The current study is the first to examine generational differences in perfectionism at a cohort level. Our findings suggest that selforiented perfectionism, socially prescribed perfectionism, and other-oriented perfectionism have increased over the last 27 years. We speculate that this may be because, generally, American, Canadian, and British cultures have become more individualistic, materialistic, and socially antagonistic over this period, with young people now facing more competitive environments, more unrealistic expectations, and more anxious and controlling parents than generations before.

These results suggest that further increases in takeaway meal consumption (and marketing directed at encouraging such increases) are likely to have adverse public health consequences and should be actively discouraged. The government should be considering health protection initiatives to reverse the current trends in takeaway meal consumption, in the context of broader efforts to improve childhood diet and nutrition in home and school settings.

Takeaway meal consumption and risk markers for coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes and obesity in children aged 9–10 years: a cross-sectional study
Donin AS, et al. Arch Dis Child 2017;0:1–6. doi:10.1136/archdischild-2017-312981

What is already known?
  • Observational evidence suggests that adults who regularly eat takeaway meals have poorer diet quality, increased adiposity, type 2 diabetes and coronary heart disease.
  • In the UK, takeaway meal consumption is increasing. However, little is known about the associations between takeaway meal consumption and chronic disease risk markers in children.

What this study adds?
  • Our study suggests that children who regularly eat takeaway meals have adverse lipid profiles, higher body fat and poorer diet quality.
  •   Efforts to reduce takeaway meal consumption in children could have both short-term and long-term health benefits.

It's early, but Christmas and Santa Lucia in Verona is coming soon.

When you have children, sooner or later comes the moment of truth.
For me, for us parents, the moment came about a month ago.
The question was : "Tell me the truth about Santa!"
Not easy to answer!

Inspireing and helpful for me was this post from few years ago:
ARE YOU SANTA? TELL ME THE TRUTH (2013).

Bill Gates and Steve Jobs raised their kids tech-free — and it should've been a red flag

Interviews with Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and other tech elites consistently reveal that Silicon Valley parents are strict about technology use. A new book suggests the signs may have been clear years ago that smartphone use should be regulated. There may be a way to integrate tech into the classroom, however, that avoids its harmful effects. Psychologists are quickly learning how dangerous smartphones can be for teenage brains.

For my kids I'm slowly discovering the various options that it offers ANKI. Wonderful !
On YouTube it can be found a lot of tips and suggestions for efficient work with it.

I used jMemorize and contributed a Norwegian translation years ago. What I liked about it was how quick it was to create a deck of cards and then use logaritmic spaced repetition, i.e. cards you remember are pushed to a later and later time, which leaves more time to repeat the cards you struggle with. How is Anki in that department?

Thank you for letting me know jMemorize. I will try it out !
As I can see the philosophy is the same like Anki: Leitner-System (spaced repetition) with the application of an algorithm system.

Algorithm questions are relatively secondary for me. Important are an easy to use system and a system with less possible scheduling errors in real-world use. My intention is to keep the flashcard structure simple.  I'm curious how will be the performance. I hope to have set the right horse.
Long live a recent backup in any way ! :-)

Returning to the spaced repetition system I've found this:
Spaced Repetition
What spaced repetition algorithm does Anki use?
Why Anki?

That's what I was concerned about too. Meanwhile I think the most important thing is that you use it every day (independently of the tool). And, start to speak, read,...

My kids (16, 18) go back a little bit from the mobile phone, sometime go out without one, refuse to switch on mobile data to not get messages all the time when spending time outdoor with friends. So it is not as worse as I thought.

Hello @Einer von Vielen
I suppose you have managed to steer your children's digital lifestyle in the right direction through your own exemplary role. A parent intusiastic in tecnology and digital self-determination, aware of the value of privacy and real live. I hope that I will be able to do the same in the next few years. :-)

I hope so. Telling them doesn't help really.

A little song, though unfinished and poorly recorded, I made years ago for my daughter, just for fun. It came up to my mind recently, while I had an ukulele in my hands and a cold in my throat... here's the result =)
