Repeated trial and error with constant failure, short tasks and rewards, multi-sensory input with an emphasis on visual 3d and a sense of ‘false danger’ all massively boost cognition and create a sense of immersion. 2. Emotional security has a massive physical impact on cognition. Safe, positive and emotionally secure situations are necessary for learning. This underscores the need to tackle cyberbullying. 3. Certain activities are better suited to non-technological solutions. A good example is texts. Neuroscience indicates that reading a physical book boosts cognition and enhances a wide range of skills to a greater extent than reading text on a virtual screen. We are already seeing a move back towards books in the classroom, especially in literacy classes. 4. The impact of screen use on developing minds continues to be controversial.
