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."

Δεν υπάρχει μόνον ένα αλλά πολλά είδη νοημοσύνης. Και όπως δεν μπορούμε να βρούμε δύο ανθρώπους με πανομοιότυπα δακτυλικά αποτυπώματα, έτσι δεν μπορούμε να βρούμε και δύο ανθρώπους με τον ίδιο συνδυασμό απ αυτά τα είδη νοημοσύνης!

Video games do one thing very well: train people to become better gamers. But whether those results transfer outside the game into the real world is a source of lively debate among neuroscientists.

This Is Your Brain On Games - InformED

This Is Your Brain On Games - InformED | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it

“Action video games have a number of ingredients that are actually really powerful for brain plasticity, learning, attention, and vision,” says brain scientist Daphne Bavelier in her TED Talk on the subject.

Findings like Bavelier’s have been cropping up over the last few years, forcing us to reevaluate our firmly held beliefs. Many educators now use video games in formal learning settings, and others are teaming up with members of the gaming industry to design programs that target specific learning goals. The controversy is ebbing, and this year neuroscientists have discovered something that may end the discussion once and for all:

Video games actually make the brain bigger.

"We need to become visual teachers"


Elaine Roberts, Ph.D's curator insight, January 16, 10:19 AM

I believe many educators already incorporate the visual in their teaching. I am reluctant to join the chorus to "shift to visual teaching," but I do think we need to consider in what situations we can use visual teaching to help students make connections so they can achieve the learning you wish and hope for them.
