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."

When people worry about smartphones, they often talk of separating the user from the device for the sake of their mental health. But for many younger people, they might view that device as a part of themselves. A young person’s entire sense of connection and friendship may well be mediated by screens, with both analog and digital friendships.

Education in the digital future: Now it’s going to be real!

Education in the digital future: Now it’s going to be real! | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
Buzzwords fill the air. Key notes fly around our ears. But developments do not take place. Because the education system does not change, it will be replaced step by step. Why do schools and universities not embrace the digital change? Because their two main characteristics are no longer in demand: pedagogy and didactics. These are bad news - explained in detail elsewhere. Now I'm thinking about the question: What comes to us?

I am asked again and again: „How do education and school look like in the future?" Well: On the one hand alternatives already exist. They are digital (udacity, coursera, edX & consorts), and they are analogous. On the other hand alternative learning projects spring up like mushrooms, as recently read again: Free schools are on the upswing. Even in Switzerland.

In this article I will now show you what successful education is going to be in the future. And again, it is not a question of whether we want it or not. It is only a matter of how we shape it.

Teacher modeling, cooperative application in real life situations. This article can help teachers to understand how to link properly all this  3 concepts (literacy, ICT and the 21st century skills). It's essential to identify what we expect from our students; for instance: collaboration in order to solve problems. Working in group is not only important to learners but also to teachers,workers, everyone! As teachers we can assess team work by using clear rubrics and start to release the responsibility of the learning process also to the students, it is their process after all and they need to be highly involved and engaged.
