Brain 'architecture' differs in kids with dyslexia - Futurity

Brain 'architecture' differs in kids with dyslexia - Futurity | Scooping Literacy: Diversified Learning | Scoop.it
Neuroimaging shows that "white matter" behaves differently in the brains of children with dyslexia, a disorder that makes reading a struggle.

Via Carolyn D Cowen
Terry Doherty's insight:

The article is fairly technical, but you can scroll down to get to the essence for helping dyslexic learners: "The typically developing readers showed greater connectivity to linguistic regions than the dyslexic group. Those with dyslexia showed greater connectivity to visual and (memory encoding and retrieval) regions."

When we talk about how our education system is failing our students, there are a lot of different options presented on how to ‘fix’ it.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 27, 10:25 PM

I rarely assigned homework. It seemed counter-productive and counter-intuitive. The exception, if can be called homework, were projects which engaged students and their parents at home. This provided an untapped resource, excited students and parents, and was highly successful. I always provided more time for these projects so they did not work against learning.

Good piece, but need to consider also; this country is not really catering to multi-cultural group.  But, we should learn from their examples - we in Australia definitely moving towards over-educating, with even prep losing its play-based approach.  Also worth noting - the teacher in the classroom has the biggest impact on whether or not the students will learn - effective teachers=effective learners.

Joan Ganz Cooney Center - We Stink at Playing with Our Kids: Thinking Differently About Playing Together

Joan Ganz Cooney Center - We Stink at Playing with Our Kids: Thinking Differently About Playing Together | Scooping Literacy: Diversified Learning | Scoop.it

Co-play is tricky business. A couple of years ago Emil Ovemar, Executive Producer and Co-founder ofToca Boca, the company that I work for, asked me to come up with a digital toy concept that would encourage children and parents to play together. The next day, I suggested an app based around the idea of a bike shop. The children would assemble the bikes and the adults would manage the business of the shop, pricing the bikes and selling them to virtual customers. Imagine: a giraffe comes in and needs a tall race bike. The parent says: “Hey kid! Do we have that? No? Can you build it? I’ll tell the giraffe to wait.” Next, a hippo comes in and needs a sturdy beach bike… I thought it was a good concept— the kids get to be creative and the adults handle the books. The app didn’t get made, though, and we never came up with another concept for co-play.

 

Eventually, we abandoned the idea of designing specifically for child-parent play altogether, and I’m happy about that. Here’s why: many parents, myself included, stink at playing with their children.

 

Why? Let me give you three reasons ...

Terry Doherty's insight:

Funny how we often think of nonfiction in terms of books and the past ... current events are a daily, ready-made resource. Loved this: "If you want to learn something new, get a book on the subject at your local library's children's room. You just might learn something new and be entertained in the bargain."

There are two intertwined definitions of education and only one is included here. Educare is leading students out of child. Educere is allowing students to gain control over their learning and realizing they have support when needed. We have eliminated the latter replacing it with the instrumental version called learning which is what School is about.
