Education and Health journal


We've just discovered that the Education and Health archive at /content/page/education-and-health-archive has been being sulky, asking that you sign in or register to see anything.  Sorry about that. 

We've told it to play nicely and share properly from now on.  Let me know if you experience any problems.

Mild hypoglycaemia and educational performance

Dr Neil Morris and Dr Niall Galbraith are Senior Lecturers in Psychology at the University of Wolverhampton and they have an article published in the latest issue of the journal Education and Health. The article examines the implications of very small reductions in glucose level and the effects on learning. In previous studies the authors have shown that low blood glucose levels impaired consolidation of learning, reduced comprehension of educational material and resulted in poorer memory retention for student induction material.

Adolescent social networking: Should parents and teachers be worried?

Dr. Mark D. Griffiths is a Professor of Gambling Studies and Daria J. Kuss is a doctoral researcher in the area of online addictions. They are both at the International Gaming Research Unit, Nottingham Trent University. In the latest issue of the journal Education and Health they pose the question,"Adolescent social networking: Should parents and teachers be worried?" Over the past few years, there has been a significant increase in the number of media stories about social networking. This has also led to a recent upsurge in the amount of empirical research being carried out.

Are today's children fit and active?

Richard Larouche is a Doctoral student in Human Kinetics at the University of Ottawa. His article, in the latest issue of Education and Health, asks the question, "Are today's children fit and active?" Twenty two years ago, Armstrong (1989) reported that "Children are fit, but not active!" He described the physical activity level of over 300 British youths aged 11 to 15 years old, as measured by heart rate monitors. The participants were as fit as the first children that were tested in laboratory settings 50 years before.
