Connected learning is so much more than using a computer, smartphone or tablet...

 

===> it's how we use those tools.  <===

 

The old argument that schools should not use it as a way to communicate with families because many families don't have access to computers is an argument that needs to go away.

Have We Drifted Away From Informed Child-Development Practices? | EdWeek

Have We Drifted Away From Informed Child-Development Practices? | EdWeek | Engaging students | Scoop.it

"Child development is not part of the reform agenda. Yet, at the local level it is our daily reality.  In some schools, assessments on computers to capture and measure understanding, information, and skills begins as early as Kindergarten. The accountability frenzy has trumped not only common sense, but years of child development research and theory. "

Something to consider for those who use UDL for lesson or unit planning.

Sophie Charlotte Foster's curator insight, October 8, 2013 4:00 PM

This article describes how students and learners with dyslexia are able to be assisted in reading format and content due to a new technological font having been invented, which is designed to stop readers from jumbling, mirroring or mixing up letters which results in slow reading as well as difficult reading/learning. It also discusses the lack of knowledge about dyslexia and about potential funding in Kenya to help underprivileged families, with children who have dyslexia, to receive help financially in assisting their child in overcoming dyslexia and helping their learning experience improve.

This topic is dear to all our hearts as we see boys struggling with academics.  So who has the answer?
