Deb Gardner's curator insight, May 7, 2014 8:06 AM

Although that ship has sailed for students and teachers in Indiana, field test feedback is beginning to stream in.

 

"Field-testing of two multistate online assessments is going more smoothly than many educators had expected, despite technological glitches in the coast-to-coast experiment. And even though the exams, aligned with the Common Core State Standards, are still in the tryout phase, they are proving tougher than the ones students are used to taking."

5 Ways Robots Will Change Your Life

5 Ways Robots Will Change Your Life | Oh The Places | Scoop.it

"While we are still decades away from a Jetsons-style future, the days of robots in our lives isn’t far off.


The purpose of robots is to work together with humans to do a better job or to automate tasks that:

     * take humans too long to do, 

     * are too tedious, 

     * or are impossible for us to do. 


For certain jobs, like manufacturing cars and cleaning carpets, robots are already becoming commonplace and they will only become increasingly integrated into our lives. 


 Here are just some ways we are experimenting with robots now, and what it means for our future."

If Your Friends Ever Say They Have ADHD, Just Show Them This.

If Your Friends Ever Say They Have ADHD, Just Show Them This. | Oh The Places | Scoop.it
Click To Enlarge
iCoachP's insight:

This article could be renamed, "All About James Puliatte" and perfectly describes what I could never articulate to people about myself. If you know me then you can probably read some of it and say, "Oh yeah he does that." However, I am not posting this as a cry for help or to complain. ADHD has molded me into the person I have grown up to be and has contributed to my successes. Yeah some parts are annoying, like when you're putting away your laundry and decide to completely reorganize your closet (happened last week*)

But the part that reads, "The exception to this is a thing we get called hyper focus. Occasionally, when something just clicks with us, we can get ridiculously deeply drawn into it, and NOTHING can distract us. We've locked our metaphorical office door, and we're not coming out for anything short of a tornado."

For me basketball is that thing that "clicks", it always has and always will. When I am working on basketball or when I am coaching, I am always in hyper focused mode.

My friends should love the fact that I have ADHD. It is ADHD that allows me to drop everything when they need help with something, hyper focus on their problem, and come up with a solution, then go right back to what I was doing. This also helps me in my job.

Nothing in life is perfect, you have to take the pros and the cons. For me, I'd rather "suffer" from ADHD then even think of the alternative.
