Children whose minds wander have sharper brains – Telegraph

Children whose minds wander have sharper brains

So this sounds like a RAM concept of short-term memory. The problem with this analogy is that when the computer shuts down everything in the RAM memory vanishes. Wait. That sounds familiar.

I made the illustration at http://www.tagxedo.com/. www.wordle.net is nice but it doesn’t let you save word clouds as jpg images so it’s not much use for blogs. Both of them let you paste text (this one is just the article as a word cloud) or write it yourself.

Here is another cool version from www.worditout.com

    That was very interesting, Carina. Thanks. One thing I noticed in your link:

    average children need nine to twelve repetitions of a new concept in order to learn it, bright children need six to eight repetitions, but gifted children can learn new concepts after only one or two repetitions

    For martial arts it takes thousands of repetitions though…

  2. Thank you Niall for a very interesting topic, this might complete it
