Regular exercise can improve memory and learning: Scientists

Exercising for up to an hour a day can improve memory and learning in children and the elderly, scientists have found.

Walking or cycling regularly for between six months to a year can improve memory and problem solving skills in the elderly by between 15 and 20 per cent, according to researchers.

Professor Art Kramer, director of the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology at the University of Illinois, who led the research, said their findings could have major implications for improving children’s performance at school, and it could also be used to help the elderly combat memory loss in old age.

WFP: World Food Programme has created a quiz that is funded by LG Electronics: “For every person who takes this short hunger quiz, a child will receive a warm meal thanks to an anonymous donor to WFP. Test your hunger IQ, then challenge your friends!”

If ever there was a online game to play this seems like a good one! It takes less than a minute!

Digital media a regular part of life for many children. According to a national study by Common Sense Media, digital media has become “a regular part of the media diet” of children ages zero to 8 years old.

Infants and toddlers are spending twice as much time with screen media as they are with books, a report says. This is surely going to have an effect on education very soon. Books in the classroom will disappear. And that’s a good thing in my book :)
