10 Resources to Better Understand Dyslexia | Edudemic

10 Resources to Better Understand Dyslexia | Edudemic | Communication design | Scoop.it
Imagine trying to read a sentence when every other word looks like made-up gibberish. It’s exhausting to read the sentence over and over again, trying to put together the meaning. That one troublesome sentence is followed by another… and another… and another… You know it’s not your fault – it’s the text doesn’t make sense. …

Did you know that it is estimated that 1 out of 5 people struggle with dyslexia (and often do not realize it)? This post provides a range of resources that look at dyslexia. The resources are grouped in four areas:

* Understanding Dsylexia

* Identifying Dyslexia

* How to Teach Dyslexic Students

* Personalizing Dyslexia

The resources include videos and articles/posts as well as a link to a great website at Yale. And if you have a student in your class how is dyslexic they might be interested in learning that the following people were also dyslexic: Albert Einstein, Steven Jobs, Walt Disney, Tom Cruise and Steven Spielberg were also dyslexic.

Western Nutrition News's curator insight, October 10, 2014 6:37 AM

very worthwhile!  Did you know that th earliest sign of dyslexia is difficulty telling right from left?  and that the kids will blithely interchange hands, not even knowing that they're doing it?

This makes so much sense to me--we have done a little of this with the cartoon and graph assignments. Thinking I should plan more.

Gary Harwell's curator insight, December 8, 2013 6:09 AM

Most of our students are probably visual learners....... this explains a  lot.

Open Doors's curator insight, January 12, 2014 5:59 PM

Helping children think in both pictures and words can help with language fluency and development of creative skills.

Sir Ken Robinson: Creativity Is In Everything, Especially Teaching

Sir Ken Robinson: Creativity Is In Everything, Especially Teaching | Communication design | Scoop.it

Creativity is about fresh thinking. It doesn’t have to be new to the whole of humanity— though that’s always a bonus— but certainly to the person whose work it is. Creativity also involves making critical judgments about whether what you’re working on is any good, be it a theorem, a design, or a poem. Creative work often passes through typical phases. Sometimes what you end up with is not what you had in mind when you started. It’s a dynamic process that often involves making new connections, crossing disciplines, and using metaphors and analogies. 

.

Being creative is not just about having off-the-wall ideas and letting your imagination run free. It may involve all of that, but it also involves refining, testing, and focusing what you’re doing. It’s about original thinking on the part of the individual, and it’s also about judging critically whether the work in process is taking the right shape and is worthwhile, at least for the person producing it.

Siempre hablamos de los mind maps. Si le añadimos creatividad además al hecho de describir la creatividad en sí, el resultado es asombroso.

Lua Valentine's curator insight, September 17, 2013 4:56 PM

Interesting. As thoughts actually appear. Randomly and like a mess. 

Mrkjcbs Inh's curator insight, October 5, 2013 9:21 AM

A creative process can sometimes be quite difficult to describe. This actuallly makes it look easy.

Empathy In Creativity and Design Thinking

Empathy In Creativity and Design Thinking | Communication design | Scoop.it
RSA Animate recently released a video called 'The Power of Outrospection'. The video intrigued me and this post has helped me pull together some of my thoughts about the links between empathy and creativity.
The post explores empathy in a variety of fields, including design, human services, and the creative fields, and the video is also embedded in the post. Take the opportunity to read the post, watch the video, and ponder how empathy allows us to be creative as we look for new solutions for whatever issues we face.
