I often write about research studies from various fields and how they can be applied to the classroom. I write individual posts about ones that I think are especially significant, and will continue to do so. However, so many studies are published that it’s hard to keep up. So I’ve started writing a “round-up” of some of them each week or every other week as a regular feature.

By the way, you might also be interested in My Best Posts On New Research Studies In 2015 – So Far.

Here are some new useful studies (and related resources):

The Cognitive Benefits of Doodling is from The Atlantic and Making Learning Visible: Doodling Helps Memories Stick is from MindShift. I’m adding them both to The Best Resources On The Educational Value Of Doodling.

The Good Habit Which Boosts Self-Control is from PsyBlog and Teenagers Who Don’t Get Enough Sleep at Higher Risk for Mental Health Problems is from Scientific American. I’m adding both to The Best Resources For Helping Teens Learn About The Importance Of Sleep.

Personality outsmarts intelligence at school is from Eureka Alert.

Reliance on smartphones linked to lazy thinking is from Science Daily.

The Benefits of No-Tech Note Taking is from The Chronicle of Higher Education. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On Effective Note-Taking Strategies – Help Me Find More.
