20 Terrific Presentation Tech Tools for Kids | Learning to Educate | Scoop.it

"I put together a Google Doc form and asked educators to contribute their ideas. Over 80 suggestions were submitted, but I've distilled them down to the 20 terrific tools listed below. I didn't have room in this blog post to include all of the wonderful recommendations, so be sure to download the complete 10-page freebie from my TeachersPayTeachers store. You'll find links to each of these tech tools in that document."

Can Exercise Improve IQ In People With Down Syndrome? - Disability Scoop

Can Exercise Improve IQ In People With Down Syndrome? - Disability Scoop | Learning to Educate | Scoop.it
The key to improving cognition in those with Down syndrome could be as simple as stepping onto a bike, researchers say. (Can Exercise Improve IQ In People With Down Syndrome?
Liz Kean's insight:
I think that this study sounds interesting, but there were two immediate problems I found with the article- 1. It seems to me that most research on exercise shows the more active you are the better you physical health, mental health, concentration, levels of tiredness etc. So I'm not sure if this should be put forward as a Down syndrome specific therapy. 2. There is a real focus on improving IQ and pushing children with Down syndrome to interact on 'societies' grounds. Teaching disability like this puts the focus on chromosome differences as the problem rather than societies barriers to people, it makes it easy to forget that all students are different, and I think that is a major problem in classrooms. If you can see anything else/ disagree with me I would be interested to hear your comments.

This is a free interactive resource supporting teachers and students learning about diversity.
Teachers can access videos, cross-curriculum learning modules, forums and other resources that are linked to the Australian Curriculum. These resources are appropriate for Years 3-10.
Thanh Nguyen's comment, March 17, 2013 5:23 PM
This is a very interesting interactive resource about diversity. Teachers can use the ideas for their classroom activities.
