Malcolm Gladwell's 'David and Goliath' talks Dyslexia and its Advantages

Listen to Malcolm Gladwell on David Boies' dyslexia and his latest book David and Goliath  http://bit.ly/1chiSQy


Excerpt: "Why do we return again and again to the subject of seemingly lopsided conflicts? So one, I wanted to explain that obsession. And two, I thought the ways in which we misread these conflicts are symptomatic of something deeper, which is I don't think that we have a good sense of what an advantage really is. Or a disadvantage. We have those categories mixed up, and I wanted to kind of sort through them and say, 'Things that we have thought were real advantages actually aren't, and things that we think of as overwhelming obstacles actually are incredibly useful.'"


On the success of David Boies, a trial lawyer diagnosed with dyslexia:

"Here we have one of the greatest lawyers in the country, and he is profoundly dyslexic. He reads basically one book a year. He finds reading difficult and painful. Think about that for a moment, he's a lawyer! He's in a profession that has reading at its absolute core. When I talked to him, I said, 'How did you become such a successful lawyer in spite of this disability?' And he said, 'not in spite, I became a successful lawyer because of this so-called disability.' And he explained to me how he spent his life compensating for this."


"He learned how to listen, and he also developed an extraordinary memory. So he would sit in school, and he didn't take notes, he sat and listened to the teacher and remembered everything that was said. Those two skills turned out to be far more useful than you'd think in getting through school, but more importantly, when he becomes a trial lawyer, what's being a great trial lawyer all about? It's about listening very closely to what the person you're cross-examining is saying and being able to summon that in the moment. So he's famous for confronting the witness and saying, 'Three days ago, you said the following thing.' He'd been working on those skills his entire life." "

Una nueva herramienta para enseñar a programar a los niños y que puedan aprender a traves de la creacion de programas, aplicaciones y juegos.

La gracia de aprender a codificar es que ayuda a organizar los pensamientos, priorizar y estrcturar los procesos.

Si el estudiante logra captar ese orden, sera capaz de llegar a un resultado satisfactorio, casi sin dudas.
