Articles of Interest:

Importance of right brain/creative-intuitive-meditative mind and mental focus for career or education: See articles at RBA web site.

More creative, intuitive training and an emphasis on developing higher multi-dimensional intelligence skills can balance some of the effects of increased use of technology... enabling students, teachers, and staff to build new mind skills and creative abilities independent of technology, able to see with more expanded "aha" mind abilities.  Here are some articles regarding impacts of technology, online only texting and communication, that indicate a great need and balancing of what we metaphorically call right brain or "creative-intuitive-meditative-collaborative" skills.

The most important message is: We can build new "super normal" and "super creative" brain skills and better understanding of why it is important to focus on human, not just digital learning, role models, and creative inspiration.  Right Brain Aerobics provides numerous techniques and daily practices to do just that, whether in school, learning, reading -- or seeking to advance to the top CEO/CIO levels in companies.  These articles below simply indicate where we need to start turning things around with more right brain ("aha" mind, creative) and well as left brain approaches to learning, teaching, leading, and health!

"...experts have found that those who rely more on technology suffer a deterioration in cognitive abilities more commonly seen in patients who have suffered a head injury or psychiatric illness."

 "3 Lessons: How We May Impede Kids from Healthier, Creative Minds--and What We Can Do About It." S.H. Rodman, Right Brain Blogs.
80% Loss of Creativity Since 1944?: Article from the IEEE (Institute of Electronics and Electrical Engineers), Proceedings of the Seventh International Conference on Information Visualization, 2003, Creative performance: does the computer retard artistic development?,” T. Kipp.  
“Over the last decade, there have been several debates concerning the dominance of technology in academic disciplines such as fine arts and graphic design. Advanced imaging devices, such as fMRI and PET scans, have provided researchers with visual information in the field of brain science that may settle these debates. We outline a research study conducted among undergraduate art students to investigate the level of visual perception and creative development. .." 
"Among the groups studied, the research concluded that artistic traits such as visual memory, perception and a critical eye for detail declined 80% as compared to research studies conducted in 1944. We present scientific research in the field of cognition and brain science, suggesting dominant use of technology in the arts retards intellectual and perceptual-motor skills.”  
"Your Phone vs. Your Heart" NY Times. Use it or lose it.
"...the more attuned to others you become, the healthier you become, and vice versa. This mutual influence also explains how a lack of positive social contact diminishes people. Your heart’s capacity for friendship also obeys the biological law of “use it or lose it.” If you don’t regularly exercise your ability to connect face to face, you’ll eventually find yourself lacking some of the basic biological capacity to do so."

"So the next time you see a friend, or a child, spending too much of their day facing a screen, extend a hand and invite him back to the world of real social encounters. You’ll not only build up his health and empathic skills, but yours as well. Friends don’t let friends lose their capacity for humanity."
"Here's What a Constantly Plugged-In Life Is Doing to Kids' Bodies" from Huffington Post. "This is your teen on screens."

But we can transform this, and build new brain/mind power! More right brain or intuitive "alpha state" mind found in meditative states can have powerful effect, including building new gray matter!
"Mindfulness Meditation Training Changes Brain Structure in 8 Weeks" referencing a Massachusetts General Hospital study 
"How to Build a Bigger Brain" from UCLA Newsroom.
"Is It Right, Wrong, or Creative?" from a newsblurb in The Creativity Institute. (7th blurb down) "Ms. Stapelbroek ...makes[s] a case for nurturing creativity in children at early ages, and how creative teachers who prize creative responses can make a world of difference. The comments are in a letter to the editor in response to an article in PHYSICS TODAY, June 2005 by Lee Smolin entitled 'Why No 'New Einstein?' While the article makes a case for nurturing creativity at the graduate college level and beyond, Ms. Stapelbroek uses her children's experiences as examples of how valuing creativity and nurturing it from infancy has the greatest benefits."  
"How a Radical New Teaching Method Could Unleash a Generation of Geniuses." Wired Magazine. About creatively letting students collaborate and learn to teach themselves in the classroom, tapping their "Inner Genius."  Tapping their "Inner Genius," Right Brain Start Up, and many Right Brain Aerobics exercises are to facilitate just this kind of approach, along with accessing the deeper more relaxed "aha" states of mind, using sound and deep mental focus exercises, to reach the "alpha" state associated with deep insight and creativity, innovating thinking - as well as reaping the benefits of entering into these deeper meditative-mind focus states.
