Drugging Einstein, an article on ADD and Dyslexia by S Conde

Drugging Einstein, an article on ADD and Dyslexia by S Conde | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it

What if ADD and dyslexia are not disabilities? ADD and dyslexia are not diseases, they are differences in the way the brain processes information and the parts of the brain used to process information. People with ADD and dyslexia are not sick, their brains just work differently. A psychiatrist explained it to me this way. The ADD brain is actually older, from an evolutionary standpoint, than the neuro-typical brain. When we were hunter gatherers the ADD brain was necessary for survival, noticing everything at once, hyper alert, able to zero in on and focus on a singular detail in the environment. When we moved as a species from hunting to agriculture, the executive functions of the brain began to evolve. Executive functions deal with planning, verbal reasoning, inhibition, etc. The linear thinking mind became a distinct advantage in planning crop planting times and rotations for example."

The illusion of attention

The illusion of attention | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it

“Perceptual load corresponds to the amount of information that needs to be processed in a task,” Lavie explains, “and the extent to which processing the task information fills up the senses. It corresponds roughly to task difficulty, because a more difficult task is likely to load more on the senses.” This may not always be the case, however: “You may be engaged in a computerised task that is not too difficult but loads up your vision with many different visuals on the screen.”

School in the Cloud: A virtual classroom in the wild

School in the Cloud: A virtual classroom in the wild | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
Over two years, the 64-year-old education researcher has found students across such schools showing improvement in reading, comprehension, collaboration and consensus-building, self-confidence, Internet literacy and search skills and the ability to address complex and “big” questions. In the case of the Korakati school, students improved their English-language skills too—the proof lies in their speaking skills.

Can character be taught to kids? Author Paul Tough writes about how kids develop character through relationships with caring adults instead of through formal education. 

If we want to improve a child’s grit or resilience or self-control, it turns out that the place to begin is not with the child himself. What we need to change first, it seems, is his environment.

Learn to code robots are a fun way to teach kids the fundamentals of programming. Nowadays, there is a growing understanding that knowing how to program is essential for our kids. While learning random facts is less and less relevant in a world where you can simply use Google to find an answer to any question, programming becomes an important skill that enables anyone to succeed. However, you can’t simply give a book to your kids and expect that they will learn everything by themselves. Instead, teach kids programming with smart and fun toy coding robots for kids that can transform the tedious learning process into an exciting game.
