It can be concluded that serious games can indeed play an important, motivating role in cognitive training of adolescents, although the specific circumstances under which this works optimally will need further study."--Samenvatting auteur.

"Adolescence is a developmental period in which an increase in risk taking behavior, such as experimenting with large amounts of alcohol, is common. Although this kind of behavior does not always lead to problematic behavior, excessive use of alcohol at this age can cause significant health problems and school drop-out, and it increases the chance of developing addiction-related problems later in life. It is therefore important to take action at an early stage, to prevent escalation. Previous research has shown that training certain cognitive control processes, such as working memory and inhibition, can be effective means to help adolescents get more grip on their alcohol use. Additionally, a number of relatively automatic processes, such as selective attention for alcohol, can be re-trained, away from the alcohol. Although both of these forms of computerized training have been shown to be effective, they are also often seen as long and boring. Serious games may provide a way to motivate adolescents to complete these cognitive training tasks. This PhD thesis describes a framework for the development of such serious games, with several examples of game-training tasks that were developed. It can be concluded that serious games can indeed play an important, motivating role in cognitive training of adolescents, although the specific circumstances under which this works optimally will need further study."--Samenvatting auteur.

When it comes to motivating people to learn, disadvantaged urban adolescents are usually perceived as a hard sell. Yet, in a recent MetLife survey, 89 percent of the low-income students claimed â€œI really want to learnâ€ applied to them. What is it about the school environmentâ€"pedagogy, curriculum, climate, organizationâ€"that encourages or discourages engagement in school activities? How do peers, family, and community affect adolescentsâ€™ attitudes towards learning? Engaging Schools reviews current research on what shapes adolescentsâ€™ school engagement and motivation to learnâ€"including new findings on studentsâ€™ sense of belongingâ€"and looks at ways these can be used to reform urban high schools. This book discusses what changes hold the greatest promise for increasing studentsâ€™ motivation to learn in these schools. It looks at various approaches to reform through different methods of instruction and assessment, adjustments in school size, vocational teaching, and other key areas. Examples of innovative schools, classrooms, and out-of-school programs that have proved successful in getting high school kids excited about learning are also included.

In recent years, there has been an explosion of research focused on using technology in healthcare, including web- and mobile- health assessment and intervention tools, as well as smartphone sensors and smart environments for monitoring and promoting health behavior. This work has shown that technology-based therapeutic tools offer considerable promise for monitoring and responding to individuals' health behavior in real-time. They may also function as important "clinician-extenders" or stand-alone tools, may be cost-effective and may offer countless opportunities for tailoring behavioral monitoring and intervention delivery in a manner that is optimally responsive to each individual's profile and health behavior trajectory over time. Additionally, informational and communication technologies may be used in the context of decision support tools to help individuals better understand and access treatment. Technology may enable entirely new models of healthcare both within and outside of formal systems of care and thus offers the opportunity to revolutionize healthcare delivery. This edited book defines the state of scientific research related to the development, experimental evaluation, and effective dissemination of technology-based therapeutic tools targeting behavioral health. Behavioral Healthcare and Technology provides an overview of current evidence-based approaches to leverage technology to promote behavioral health, including management of substance use, mental health, diet/exercise, medication adherence, as well as chronic disease self-management. Additionally, the book defines the state of implementation research examining models for deploying technology-based behavioral healthcare systems and integrating them into various care settings to increase the quality and reach of evidence-based behavioral healthcare while reducing costs.

This much-needed book is the first applied research book on adolescent literacy. It addresses the role of literacy instruction in enhancing content area learning, and fostering student motivation and success well beyond the primary grades. The unique literacy needs of middle school and secondary students are thoroughly examined and effective practices and interventions identified. Reviewing the breadth of current knowledge and with contributions from some of the most prominent scholars in the field, important topics are covered such as: * how literacy skills develop in grades 5-12 * ways to incorporate literacy learning into English, social studies, math, and science * struggling adolescent readers and writers: what works in assessment and intervention * special challenges facing English language learners and culturally diverse students * implications for teacher training, policy, and future research.
In this volume, we are fortunate to gather together some of the most eminent scholars who have written extensively about the academic motivation of adolescents.
Author: Tim Urdan
Few academic issues are of greater concern to teachers, parents, and school administrators than the academic motivation of the adolescents in their care. There are good reasons for this concern. Students who are academically motivated perform better in school, value their schooling, are futureoriented in their academic pursuits, and possess the academic confidence and positive feelings of selfworth so necessary to increasing academic achievement. Because academically motivated students engage their schoolwork with confidence and interest, they are less likely to drop out of school, suffer fewer disciplinary problems, and prove resilient in the face of setbacks and obstacles. It is precisely because academic motivation is so essential to academic achievement that motivation has taken a place along with cognition as one of the most followed lines of inquiry in educational psychology. In this volume, we are fortunate to gather together some of the most eminent scholars who have written extensively about the academic motivation of adolescents. We are fortunate also in that they represent the varied theories and lines of inquiry that currently dominate research in this area. In all, we believe that in the dozen chapters that comprise this volume, the authors provide elegant insights regarding the academic and social motivation of adolescents that will prove of interest to researchers, students, teachers, school administrators, parents, policymakers, and all others who play a pivotal role or are otherwise invested in the lives of adolescents in today's society. It is our hope that these insights will not only further the conversation on adolescence and education, but will serve as the impetus for further research capable of generating the creative ideas, programs, and structures so necessary to better the lives of the young people in our care.

Covers all aspects (historical, epidemiological, diagnostic, clinical, preventative, public health and medico-legal) of STIs in complete detail with a special emphasis on STIs in special groups—migrants, homosexuals, and sexually abused. Covers basic and laboratory sciences extensively to blend with the basics required by the clinician for proper understanding of the disease process. Clinical photographs, illustrations, photographs of specimens and cultures, histopathology, flow charts and line diagrams are given extensively throughout the text to make relevant clinical situation self-explanatory. Has very useful and practical information for even the clinician in the periphery, where the investigative component is either non-existent or very basic and many new drugs are not available or unaffordable. Management of HIV in adults and children in resource-poor countries has been covered extensively along with syndromic management of STIs. This enables a physician to choose from approaches in a particular situation depending upon the available means—laboratory or therapeutic. Covers sexual dysfunction in both men and women and the basics of human sexual behavior and sexual health. Section Editors and Contributors from all continents of the world have made this a truly global reference book. It is a useful reference text for epidemiologists, public health experts, clinicians, microbiologists, health workers, social organizations and counselors working in the field of STIs, sexual health, and HIV.
