Relearning gets us out of our comfort zone because the loss of what was learned is always a reminder that gets up in our face even as adults it is frustrating! In the many years working as CNA1 and C NA 11 there were people I took care of that had Alzhimers Disease and some was combative but we were taught how to approach them for their calmness and both of our safety. In retrospect now I can appreciate why some of them acted and reacted as they did. It was not a comfortable thing to have loss of memory the struggle in mind to recall but just can't . Added there is someone asking are you ok with  them to ashamed or scared of be

ing put down in the pasture so to speak if they are so

e stray dog or cat for owning up to their feeling so many suffer alone and or in silence until they have no choice because the help they need is made outside of just their knowledge! Show some love and creative tips to relearn because it just might be you or your love one some day sooner than later and age is not the only factor in considering of there is need.

A New Way To Teach Using Wordle

A New Way To Teach Using Wordle | AdLit | Scoop.it
There's a new way to teach using wordle. It involves actually withholding a bit of information and making students think a bit harder.

Pictures convey meaning in profound ways. I’ll illustrate this using a free word cloud program called www.wordle.net. Below I have a series of favorite quotes on visualization, with references. Attached I have a word cloud of the quotes (minus the source). Please read the quotes and then look to the word cloud. I ask you: which is more powerful? Which gets the point across quicker, stronger, and faster? Which would your students prefer to read?

I’ve purposely chosen different types of quotes on visualization to use in the word cloud to illustrate the cloud as it is meant to be used—to immediately and visually highlight commonalities in text. This is a powerful tool for students; I use it at the beginning of my chapter lecture notes to visually represent the material for that chapter.
