The book is compact without being dense, and takes the reader through a guided tour of the soft skills domain. It is an interesting and informative excursion. Given the importance of the subject matter of this book to learn more about academic topics as well as life skills through some leading questions, through these academic knowledge and soft skills, and given the orderly and stimulating manner in which the subject has been presented, it can be predicted that the book would see several reprints in the years to come. I recommend this book to people who could use any of the principles and concepts to teach the Math and Science curriculum and to reinforce the soft skills both in the classroom and outside of it. It is also a great book to people who have fun in teaching while picking up new concepts in academic knowledge and soft skills.” Dr Nugroho J Setiadi Head of Institute for Research and Community Services Widyatama University Bundung, West Java Indonesia “This book uses the concepts of Math and Science to instill into the minds of young inquirers. The games created in this book, is also a valuable tool for Team Development in an Outdoor Experimental Laboratory. It helps to create the good leadership styles, teamwork and interpersonal skills, which are sought after by many business corporations of today. It is a simple approach but practical, to reduce the complexity of the human interactions in a corporation. This is another way towards Team Change Management.” Dr Richard Ng Management Professor University of the Philippines “Henri-Frédéric Amie, the Swiss philosopher, poet and criticm, once said that “Man becomes man only by his intelligence, but he is man only by his heart”. We can be the most intelligent person in the world, but it is the matters of the heart that makes us truly human. Knowledge of Science and Math, the traditional “brain” subjects, are undoubtedly essential in today's technological age but life consists of more than one dimension. The world, more and more, is crying out not just for clever men and women but also for those with true character in their hearts. This book has seized upon a brilliant idea of integrating the teaching of Science and Math with elements of emotional and social education, by exploring themes like honesty, teamwork, flexibility. The fun and interesting games, elegantly simple but enormously effective, will certainly open the eyes of the students to see Science and Math with a new perspective on how the various aspects of the total human experience are interrelated. Fellow teachers will find this most useful. And it is a book I wish my own teachers had when I was a student!” Mr Chen Khin Wee Associate Faculty, School of Art and Social Sciences SIM University, Singapore “What a refreshing way to look at Maths and Science! Games can bring just enduring understanding in abstract mathematical and scientific concepts and they help every learner experience and learn them through an innovatively kinaesthetic way. The author has also ingenuously connect these games to character building and leadership principles. Brilliant! Now we have mathematical and scientific thinking and reasoning brought into more authentic contexts and the child benefits a multitude of ways. I commend this book as a unique resource for any classroom and learning context.” Mrs Corinne Sim Vice Principal Methodist Girls' School, Singapore “This amazing new book sets forth interesting games that will increase your science and math skills. Whether you're training to become a group leader, are a science teacher or student, an organizer of a nerd party, or simply a curious bystander. This book encourages people to learn, practice science, and have fun at the same time. I can't wait for my kids to be big enough to try it out with them.” Dr Matjaž Kuntner Scientific Research Centre Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts, Slovenia “It gives an opportunity to school teachers to take some of these games and fully experiment them in their different aspects: playful, science learning, and developing aptitudes. ” European Mathematical Society

Recently, technology and aging have been key research areas in human cognition. The Research Topic “Digital Skills and Life-long Learning: Digital Learning as a New Insight of Enhanced Learning by the Innovative Approach Joining Technology and Cognition” investigated technology's impact on cognitive and intellective processes, highlighting how intensively technology can change and/or enhance the cognitive functioning throughout one’s lifespan. The aim of this Research Topic was to provide an outlook through multidisciplinary research and development while addressing the dynamic intersection of cognition, mind, and technology. Our scope was 1) to favor the cognitive technology debate, 2) to overcome the dichotomies of technology and psychology, 3) to emphasize the advances in knowledge and well-being. This Research Topic comprises review studies and original articles, focused on digital skills that enhance human potential. Transversal approaches and cross-sectorial analysis were encouraged, leading to investigation areas related to cognitive and mental processing—in educational, rehabilitation, clinical settings—across aging. Articles of high relevance to the Research Topic were submitted on the subjects of a) research in human performance and human factors, b) new research and technologies addressing the needs of a growing populace, and c) cognitive aging and cognitive rehabilitation research.

Craniosacral therapy is based on the belief that functions of the human system are maintained and integrated by a biodynamic force known as 'primary respiration, ' or the breath of life. Found in the brain, spinal cord, and bodily fluids, this rhythmic pulse promotes healing and health. Written for students and practitioners but accessible to lay readers, this text presents the fundamental concepts and techniques of a method that redirects the cerebrospinal fluid to areas of imbalance, thus enhancing overall health. Volume One covers both the history and conceptual ideas fundamental to Craniosacral Biodynamics, as well as the more complex structural and tissue relationships.
