Donnelly is correct in noting that there is a growing 'it'll be right' attitude in some sectors of Australian education, but Australian Year 11 & 12 students still experience enormous amounts of stress. I think that comparing the competitiveness of sport (which children usually choose to participate in) with academia (where children of varying abilities are forced into the same room to work through the same material) is misleading. Stress has well-documented negative effects on human health and productivity. There must be a better alternative than to adopt the strict, competitive academic environment of some other countries.
Well said Greg. How we go about attracting more Maths and Physics graduates to teaching is a huge problem. As much as I love biology, and would not exist without it, there are frankly too many biologists in school science departments. I guess that it will take a generation or two for the image of teaching to change to become attractive to the more numerate graduates. The look and feel of a typical classroom has not changed in any fundamental way in the last 100+ years. Surely the time for democratic schooling is here!

I can not see how the study had individuals playing 10 hrs of videogames per day - for 3 years?! That seems like brainwashing to me, and you could find problems if people read violent stories, or even go on Facebook, for the same duration/frequency. Also I don't think stating that "The only thing society can do is try to educate people about what their video game engagement is doing to their brain" is appropriate a response to these 'findings'. Why not educate on videogames generally and not just look for the negatives. There are far more positive stories about games than negative - like how 15 year old students who play online videogames regularly (like an hour a day) get higher maths, science and reading scores than those who don't.
