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."

Once again SH!FT has created a post that works for eLearning and the face2face classroom. This post explores ways to maximize working memory, the memory that helps us "to perform efficiently and effectively in our daily lives."

Sections include:

* Working Memory as a Learning Tool

* Designing eLearning to Maximize the Working Memory

* Manage Capacity

* Effective eLearning Activities

Each of these sections includes at least one additional resource.

Learn more about each area by clicking through to the post.

I am currently reading The Big Disconnect and find this an interesting connection. I have come to the conclusion that with all this technology and information, we really need to learn more about the brain and how it works to use technology and create learning opportunities that will best serve our students.

Interactive White Boards in Preschool and Primary Education
Γιώργος Παπαναστασίου's insight:

Technologies within the domain of interactive, remote and on line science which are extensively adopted in education’s everyday life are interactive whiteboards and related applications. Interactive whiteboards indicate positive effects on students’ learning and instructors' teaching, promoting whole class teaching. In this review-paper we cope with the studies that explore the integration of IWBs in preschool and primary education in the last decade (2004-2013). Research has shown that interactive whiteboards are able to keep students involved and foster their attention in every aspect of the curriculum, much easier than without it. This technology has proven its value added to students and teachers in different facets of teaching and learning, in literacy, in mathematics, in science, in physics, its impact on English Language Learners, on relations and learning, on the use of IWBs by kindergartners, professional development of teachers, pedagogical orchestration, classroom dialogue and pedagogic practice.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 21, 5:34 PM

The use of mobile technology has increased, esp. in locations like Africa, and this is changing the way people learn. It is important to note that the mobile technology that is in used is often less "sophisticated and powerful than cell phones and have fewer features." Yet the tiny screen on the cell phone is a window to the world.

This post lists seven people/organizations from around the world who are making a difference.

It then goes on to look at what you can do with mobile learning to make a difference. There are 13 suggestions. Three are below.

* Encourage the use of apps that work on cell phones and basic phones alike.

* Create open, educational resources with a mobile, international  audience in mind.

* Spend more time explaining content than creating it.

Each of the suggestions above are described in more detail as are ten additional suggestions found in the post.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 25, 4:13 PM

Learning about our learning is essential and helps us understand how to move the learning into new areas. It includes pedagogy which helps students find new pathways that are never the same one time to the next and is never the same for all students. Teaching and learning explore who we are and how not just what we learn and how we learn.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 25, 7:21 PM

What does it mean to be digitally literate? If you ask teachers, students, parents, administrators, and community members the responses may be very different. This post explores this issue and notes (for the teacher):

"Digital literacy isn't about knowing computers inside and out; it's about using technology to change the way you think. If critical thinking skills haven't yet become a part of your students' digital citizenship, it's time to think your teaching strategy."

After the introduction, the post is split into two sections:

5 Teaching Practices that Destroy Digital Literacy. One of the practices is "using 'cool' technology to deliver a planned lesson." To learn why click through to the post.

The final section is 15 Habits to Cultivate in Your Students. Two are listed below.

* Read past the first page of Google results (and my suggestion would be to use some of the many alternative search engines. You may be surprised that many other search engines work better for students).

* Train students to react skeptically if they read the phrase  'Research says...' or 'A recent study revealed..."

To learn more about the 15 habits check out the post. Do you have ideas that would be helpful to others? If so, please share them.
