Great cartoon--thoughtful blog--Lou

 

Excerpt:

"..But why do we limit our understanding of bigotry to groups? Aren’t individuals who deviate from the norm, who learn differently, think differently, and act differently, also mistreated by large segments of society? Isn’t mistreating and bullying a "quirky" individual such as Jeremy every bit as insidious as mistreating a member of a group? Doesn’t the victim suffer just as much and need the same level of protection? It’s time that we recognize cruelty against individuals who are different as a form of bigotry. Indeed, with astounding progress in gay rights in the past decade, overcoming bigotry toward individuals may well be the next big social project.."

A New Way to Test IQ - This Video Test Will Assess How Intelligent You Are

A New Way to Test IQ - This Video Test Will Assess How Intelligent You Are | Intelligence (Theories and IQ tests) | Scoop.it

Superachievers have an incredible way of focusing on their goal and avoiding distractions. 

But does that mean there’s a connection between IQ...But does that mean there’s a connection between IQ and a superhuman ability to stay focused? 

 

Yes, according to researchers from the University of Rochester, who in a recent experiment asked 53 participants to watch short video clips of black and white bars, with the sole task of identifying whether the bars were pointing toward the left or right. The bars included in the videos were either large and take up the entire screen or smaller and only take up the centre of the screen.

 

The participants were also asked to take a standardized IQ test. The findings, published this month in the journal Biology, show that people with higher IQs had difficulty perceiving movement in larger images, but were quicker to notice movement in the smaller bars. 

 

Why do researchers think that the inability to notice the larger bars might play a role in intelligence?

Triarchic theory of intelligence - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Triarchic theory of intelligence

The triarchic theory of intelligence was formulated by Robert J. Sternberg, a prominent figure in the research of human intelligence. The theory by itself was groundbreaking in that it was among the first to go against the psychometric approach to intelligence and take a more cognitive approach.

Excellence for All--Robert J. Sternberg

Excellence for All--Robert J. Sternberg | Intelligence (Theories and IQ tests) | Scoop.it

Robert J. Sternberg

There's more to excellence than reading, writing, and arithmetic.

What does it mean for a school to be “excellent”? Is it excellent if no one fails but no one does terrifically well either? Is it excellent if the best, but only the best, do superbly? This question is important because the way we define excellence dictates the way we achieve it.

Common Models of Excellence

Let's look at four models of excellence that operate in our schools today. The following portraits are based on real schools  Read more here: http://www.ascd.org/publications/educational-leadership/oct08/vol66/num02/Excellence-for-All.aspx
