In media studies we often look at the creation of print and digital advertisements. Traditionally, students learn many of the foundational principles for creating a layout through a lecture or text book reading, and then eventually create their own.

What if we started with creativity rather than principles?

Lou Salza's curator insight, November 28, 2013 11:14 AM

This is particularly important for students with language learning differences--Lou

 

Excerpt:

"...“There’s something about writing that is a link to your brain,” said Marissa Moss, author of the popular children’s book series Amelia’s Notebook. In the books, Moss takes on the persona of a little girl expressing her ideas about the world and people around her. The books are a combination of words and drawings and look free form – as though Amelia sketched them herself.

Taking a cue from Moss, teachers from Oak Knoll Elementary School in Menlo Park, Calif., decided to have their students keep notebooks in a similar style. The notebooks aren’t graded; rather, they’re a place of private, free expression. Karen Clancy and Andrea Boatright presented the project at the Innovative Learning Conference hosted by the Nueva School recently.

“They’re not used to being given permission to write about whatever they want,” Clancy said. But once her students realized that they really weren’t being graded and that they had freedom of expression, they eventually came to demand time to write.

Moss says writing without fear of consequences is key to developing a writer’s voice. “If you’re perfect you are guaranteed to not write a thing,” Moss said. “It’s like driving with one foot on the gas and one foot on the break.” She has developed some guides to help teachers coax students into using art and writing in their journals at the same time, as a way of flexing their visual thinking along with literacy...."

Games engage the brain as it is exercise, it involves intensity, readiness, leads to mastery of something you find enjoyable.  And the rewards can be so satisfying that you try to find different ways to improve. 

 

This is how pre-schoolers are able learn naturally. Educational technology and mobile learning is good;  however young children need to take charge of their learning early, so that they can utilise their brain's potential before the subscribed learning imposed by technology.

Siendo de una comunidad bilingüe, me parece interesante. Y apoya otros estudios que confirman como las personas que combinan constantemente al menos dos lenguas pueden tener una mejor reserva cognitiva. Todavía hay quienes piensan que enseñar dos lenguas a alumnos es perjudicial para que dominen bien una, lo cual no tiene mucho fundamento.

Why Do Children Lie?

Why Do Children Lie? | Reading & Education | Scoop.it

kids find it hard to differentiate right from wrong, and consider lying to be more practical than truth. As a parent you need to understand the type of lie, and the underlying reason behind a lie. Let us understand in detail as to why children resort to lying.

jenylovesharing's curator insight, August 28, 2013 4:24 AM

Seeing a child grow up before your eyes can be a very rewarding feeling. You love to cheer and support your child's imagination. It is during their growing up years that a child comes to terms with a range of concepts. These could be fromfamily belonging, discipline to social norms, and a lot more. All this requires the parents to be extremely patient, and if children font get what they want, they resort to a different behaviour altogether. There are times when children start to lie even for things that don't matter. And no parent would want their child to grow up to be a liar. But kids find it hard to differentiate right from wrong, and consider lying to be more practical than truth. As a parent you need to understand the type of lie, and the underlying reason behind a lie. Let us understand in detail as to why children resort to lying.

 

A preschooler’s behaviour is usually such, so as to protect themselves or to get something. Puerility and imagination go together, and you can’t do much about it. It is their way of escaping reality, and a pretty normal behaviour. Moreover, kids could be seeking some of your attention. For instance, when they lie, you will be compelled to talk to them or react in a particular manner, kids love that. This need not necessarily be termed as lying, but pure innocence.

 

Preschool kids love bragging about the things they did at home or school or otherwise. Some of them would boast about taking a trip, eating the best of chocolates and ice creams, thus, leading the other kids to feel derisory or inferior. As a result, kids start to exaggerate incidents, make up stories, and lie. Every stage of child development comes with a certain pinch of jealousy and resentment. The lying somewhere helps them to feel better. Psychologists believe it to be a sheer ‘psychological defence mechanism’.

 

Parents are a child's most powerful role models, so if you feel your little one is lying excessively; it is time to do some self-evaluation. For example, you could have asked them to lie to someone about them not being around, and hang up the phone. You must have taken it as something rather silly, but kids pick up small things like these, thus, affecting the child's psychology adversely. Children start to imitate their parents and believe lying to be the easy way out.

Keeping the above pointers in mind, pay special attention towards your preschooler’s behaviour as it may develop as a negative attitude out of sheer ignorance. And since these are growing up years, where there are several mental and physical changes, it is extremely imperative to cut them down without more ado.
