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!

Social responsibility, global development, and the future of learning. | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
The future of education and international development: Egon Zehnder brought together Save the Children Chief Executive Jasmine Whitbread and educational scientist Sugata Mitra to talk about the need to develop a new paradigm for global development – one that puts a premium on sharing knowledge, building partnerships, and collaboration across sectors.

Via Nik Peachey
Γιώργος Παπαναστασίου's insight:

Sugata Mitra: A good curriculum is one that is changing every single day – not once every five years, as it does now in much of the developed world.


Jasmine Whitebread: Education is one of the areas where huge change is possible in the next few years.

One point that Mitra makes that is worth considering is about the pace of change. I think here he means the pace of change in digital technologies. It certainly is not in the pace of change happening to School.

Can teachers integrate play into the classroom as students age out of toys and games? What elements of play are presented in middle grades classroom curricula? Fun and play are strong tools for motivating and engaging students, but as students age into adolescence, incorporating these elements into the classroom may pose a challenge. A recent study investigated the practices of novice teachers across fourteen classrooms to capture and record instances of students’ joyful learning in relation to play, imagination, and creativity.
