In the 11th episode of Season 2, I’m joined by cognitive neuroscientist Dr. Jared Cooney Horvath and author of Stop Talking, Start Influencing | 12 Insights from Brain Science to Make Your Message Stick to talk about how brain science relates to some edtech issues. We discuss some vocab tools like Quizlet, Memrise, Quizizz and SuperMemo, as well as live closed captioning, sketchnoting, ebooks, collaborative notes and more.
Thanks for your work on this podcast, Jake. I am particularly interested in the research behind what was stated about Closed Captioning. Could you please share this? My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks so much
Thank you, Daniel! My #1 recommendation is to read the book. Even if you disagree with Jared’s stance on live/closed captioning, the book itself is phenomenal. The part that you’re referring to is in Chapter 1 of the book: Text + Speech. It’s focus is not on actual captioning, but in the bottleneck created when we try to process speech & text at the same time.
