TL;DR: In this paper , the authors examined the relationship between respiration and attention and explored the effectiveness of virtual reality breathing training in improving respiration along with attention and discussed the role of metacognition in the conscious synchronization of respiration with attention.
Abstract: The purpose of the current review study is to shed light on the relationship between respiration and attention. Specifically, we examined whether and how respiration can provoke alterations in attentional states. Secondly, we investigated the benefits of breath-control training techniques in attention. Furthermore, we explored the effectiveness of virtual reality breathing training in improving respiration along with attention. Finally, we discussed the role of metacognition in the conscious synchronization of respiration with attention. It was revealed that every time respiration loses stability, attention fluctuates. Every time respiration is stabilized, attention finds steadiness. The results confirmed that respiration, attention, and as a result consciousness are characterized by bidirectional synchronization since their systems present coupling functions and dynamical interactions. It was also confirmed that breath control practices guarantee instant as well as long-lasting attentional improvements regulating all those mechanisms that strengthen mental alertness firing either the pathways of relaxation or excitation. Conscious-breath training is a practice of mindful metacognition that supports the coupling of attention with respiration. Metacognition in breathing utilizes respiration to improve attention but at the same time attention is used as a tool to consciously control breathing. Finally, breathing control training in virtual reality not only improves attention along with respiration but may finetune internal and external attention. This study concludes that breathing and attention are two ‘giant’ mechanisms that go hand-in-hand and carry on their ‘shoulders’ the whole cognition. Training conscious breathing via advanced technologies should be incorporated into the dialogue of education as methods for brain rewiring assuring better inclusion and academic achievement, especially for those with disabilities.

TL;DR: In this article , the authors define three factors of interaction or as they refer to the 3 C's in education: children (children), community (communication), and computer (computers).
Abstract: Educators define three factors of interaction or as they refer to the 3 C's in education: Children (children), Community (communication), and Computer (computers) [1]. Information and Communication Technologies are an integral tool of the educational process for modern educational systems, helping the learning process to turn from passive to active, pushing each student to learn independence and autonomy. In recent years, the sciences of education have turned their attention and have already recognized the importance of games and even digital games as a learning tool, emphasizing the benefits for students with or without educational needs.

TL;DR: In this paper , alternative forms of intervention are investigated, such as video games, with virtual or augmented reality environments that aim to improve the quality of life of these children, which have contributed significantly to the control of symptoms.
Abstract: In recent years, there has been an increase in the incidence of ADHD in children and adolescents. Many learning and behavioral problems are associated with this disorder as a result of difficulties in cognitive and metacognitive functions. According to Drigas et al. (2021), only when individuals develop these functions can they be integrated in the social environment. Skills such as self-awareness, self-regulation and self-control through inner attention can help children develop alternative strategies to manage their cognitive deficits and adapt in many different environments. With the rapid development of science, several medical and psychological methods have been proposed for the treatment of ADHD, which have contributed significantly to the control of symptoms. In the present work, alternative forms of intervention are investigated, such as video games, with virtual or augmented reality environments that aim to improve the quality of life of these children.

TL;DR: In this paper , the authors present the results and their interpretation, as they emerged from the completion of a questionnaire regarding the views of parents' participation in an educational intervention program to strengthen the emotional intelligence of people with ASD.
Abstract: International research highlights the benefits of parental involvement in education [1] of children with ASD in parent behavioral training programs for children, and particular interest is the involvement of parents in socio-emotional learning programs, an area in which people with ASD, using serious serious digital games [2] and aiming for their emotional empowerment. This paper presents the results and their interpretation, as they emerged from the completion of a questionnaire regarding the views of parents' participation in an educational intervention program to strengthen the emotional intelligence of people with ASD.

TL;DR: In this paper , the interconnection of Mind Theory with the social-emotional, and cognitive development of children with autism spectrum disorder was investigated, and it was found that the limited development of Mind theory observed in children with ASD is associated with deficits in their social, cognitive, and metacognitive mechanisms.
Abstract: Autism Spectrum Disorder is a complex, heterogeneous disorder that affects perception, information processing, social interaction, verbal, and nonverbal communication, and social, and cognitive behavior. Theory of Mind concerns the observation, understanding of mental states, as well as the interpretation of the behaviors that result from them. The present paper focuses on the interconnection of Mind Theory with the social-emotional, and cognitive development of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The research findings give prominence to the existence of an interaction between the Theory of Mind and the function of the individual’s social, emotional, and cognitive skills. Therefore, the limited development of Mind Theory observed in children with autism is associated with deficits in their social, cognitive, and metacognitive mechanisms. As a result, the focused holistic approach to their weaknesses in combination with the use of ICTs is a promising, alternative form of therapeutic approach.
