Use Video Games & Ditch Traditional Instruction, Says Edtech Chief

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. August 10, 2018

Today’s students should be taught with video games because their attention spans have decreased.

Mohit Midha, CEO of Mangahigh which develops math games, says to ditch traditional instruction because students cannot focus for more than five minutes. What a life! Getting to hang out with friends and play video games all day.

Speaking at a debate on artificial intelligence and education, Midha claimed people are obsessed with video games” but are “totally out of love” with “traditional forms of instruction” involving “pen and paper.” He gushed that kids can learn a video game without being taught how and, within two days, will be doing “headers.”

Does that mean they can become little math geniuses by acing a video game?

Yet Midha is right about one thing: students’ attention spans are shrinking. Bucket loads of research show that long term skimming of online information, coupled with interactive distractions, has resulted in lower comprehension. International research also found that heavy users of classroom technology scored worse on math and reading tests.

Teens who frequently use digital media are showing increased symptoms of ADHD – an attention span and hyperactivity disorder. A new two-year study reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association showed students who used several types of digital media several times daily were twice as likely to have ADHD than classmates who were less frequent users.

So we should give more sugar to fat kids? If children experience higher rates of ADHD when exposed to digital screens, why are schools leaping into more digital learning? Children who have ADHD are forced to take medication to control their behavior. The schools are already dealing with a mental health crisis among students, with teen suicide on the rise!!!

Not only does Midha’s profoundly stupid education theory turn classrooms into video arcades, it creates psychological problems for children who then are forced to medicate. Geez, a school full of zoned out zombies.

Now what caring parent wants to send his child into an environment like that?

Bottom line: American students are dumber than any previous generation. They can’t learn through centuries old successful teaching methods so must use video games and take medication. We’ve come a mighty long way since our Colonial days when young children learned how to read at Sunday School – using the family Bible without pictures and big print.

Why are Americans still funding public schools? Why are we allowing greedy goons to take control of our children’s learning and their mental health to fatten corporate stock and provide mega billionaire lifestyles?

The Fed Begins Its Takeover of Private Enterprise & Workers

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. August 2, 2018 

The federal government is poking its nose into filling blue-collar jobs for private businesses by training workers. Yet it has no constitutional authority for involvement in the private sector -- either by planning the economy or training the workforce.

Recently President Trump signed an executive order to create the National Council for the American Worker.  The Council will develop strategies for a public private partnership to train youths and adults by employers, educational institutions, labor unions, other non-profit organizations, and local and state governments.

Since the passage of the 1965 Elementary and Secondary Education Act that was limited to helping disadvantaged students, the feds have now taken over education at all levels. No such thing as just a little help from the feds.

Citizens beware:  this is the beginning of a federal takeover of private businesses and workers.

The policy calls for consistency in implementation of the program with government and private businesses and workers.  Obviously the feds will take that lead.

The policy also calls for data mining and wide sharing of information.

“The Council shall also propose ways to increase access to available job data, including data on industries and geographic locations with the greatest number of open jobs and projected future opportunities…”

Since the feds never ever have enough information on citizens, we can be certain that personal information on workers will get included in this data mining/sharing mandate.

Our Fourth Amendment right to privacy has been completely shredded by the constant data mining through educational testing and surveys, nosy internet and social media companies, facial scans, and left wing teachers requiring students to submit DNA dossiers for public posting in the classroom.

Bills that have been filed in Congress are designed to create a national database (S.1121 – HR. 2434). The House has already rammed through another bill -- Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act (H.R. 4174) -- that also opens the door to a national database.

Let's thank our Republican lawmakers for cramming this through.  They lied about its purpose and claimed they didn't know there was wide public opposition -- despite 18 months of public testimony and thousands of letters!!

For sure, any job data scooped up will be merged with data on individuals in a national database.  This is a liberal’s wildest dream come true -- government surveillance of citizens from cradle to grave!

America was founded as a capitalist society. Now left wing radicals are turning us into a federally planned and controlled economy that surveils and tracks its citizens.  The good ole' USA is looking more like Venezuela and China everyday.

Merge Federal Departments? Better to Abolish Them

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. June 28, 2018 World Net Daily

President Donald Trump wants to combine the Education and Labor Departments into a single Department of Education and the Workforce. The DEW would “centralize and better coordinate Federal efforts to train the American workforce.” 

Let's be clear. It is not the role of federal government to train the American workforce. 

Electronic Screen Media Creating Mental Health Problems for Kids

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. June 17, 2018 

Research shows the use of electronic screen media is having biological and psychological health effects on children including reduced intelligence, increased ADHD, autism, anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, and cancer. 

The American Academy of Pediatrics’ Committee on Communications and Media points out that children are experiencing unprecedented screen violence not just on television, but also on computers, video games and touch-screen devices. They note that such exposure has been clearly linked to aggressive behavior, aggressive thoughts, aggressive feelings and physiological arousal.

Is America A Democracy?

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. April 27, 2018

It’s quite common nowadays to hear liberals and even uninformed conservatives call America a democracy. Yet we are neither a democracy nor a representative democracy.

By definition, in a democracy what the majority feels is the rule. The Founders described this scenario as “mobocracy.” Contrast that with a republic where the general population elects representatives who pass laws. The nation is governed by rule of law, not what the majority feels at a given moment.
