Predicting Dyslexia — Even Before Children Learn to Read

Predicting Dyslexia — Even Before Children Learn to Read | Teacher's corner | Scoop.it
New research shows it’s possible to pick up some of the signs of dyslexia in the brain even before kids learn to read. And this earlier identification may start to substantially influence how parents, educators and clinicians tackle the disorder.
Suvi Salo's insight:

"One of the key goals of early identification, Gabrieli says, is to help kids avoid the stigma of dyslexia."

We use science to support what we want and ignore it in teaching and learning. This would help many teachers and students work together so students can read and write effectively.

Emeric Nectoux's curator insight, May 22, 12:32 AM

What prevents individuals and organizations from innovating is their mindset.

Being innovative requires a deep understanding of the world we live in. Innovators should not fall into traps such as thinking that "everybody loves innovation" or "innovation is easy"... This article gives the 2 side of the coin, when it comes to innovation, for the innovators and the non-innovators.

Need to Remember Something? Try Drawing It

Need to Remember Something? Try Drawing It | Teacher's corner | Scoop.it
“ Researchers at the University of Waterloo have found that drawing pictures of information that needs to be remembered is a strong and reliable strategy to enhance memory. “We pitted drawing against a number of other known encoding strategies, but drawing always came out on top,” said the study’s lead author, Jeffrey Wammes, PhD candidate in the Department of Psychology. “We believe that the benefit arises because drawing helps to create a more cohesive memory trace that better integrates visual, motor and semantic information.””

TeachThought: A Diagram Of Pedagogy in the 21st Century -

TeachThought: A Diagram Of Pedagogy in the 21st Century - | Teacher's corner | Scoop.it
We know that thinking in the 21st century seems different. What about teaching? Aside from the presence of dizzying technologies, added pressure for data-based improvements, and a persistent call for innovation, how is teaching different in 2016 than it was in, say, 1984?

Here are a few ideas as a kind of quick overview, with general summaries for each. I’ve added “tags” for each domain so that we can begin to see how existing and emerging initiatives (e.g., personalized learning), trends (e.g., the flipped classroom), and buzz words (e.g., digital footprint) might fit into each.

19 Big and Small Classroom Management Strategies

19 Big and Small Classroom Management Strategies | Teacher's corner | Scoop.it
The year I started teaching seventh- to twelfth-grade English in Minneapolis, Prince launched his song about urban ruin, "Sign o' the Times." That song was an apt musical backdrop for the lives of my students, most of whom lived in poverty and challenged me daily. That year also afforded me the opportunity to be assaulted with a stone, two chairs, a Rambo knife, a seventh-grade girl's weak jab, and dozens of creative swear words. Fortunately, classroom order improved when I learned that successful classroom management depends on conscientiously executing a few big strategies and a lot of little ones

Wow, I have just started my first teaching prac and have gone into a school where the focus is more on behaviour management and less on learning.
I loved some of these tips, and some of these are used already in the school I am at. The next step is actually engaging students in learning. At my school, it's more on behaviour targets, teacher directed learning and explicit instruction focussed. So, how to make my teaching more student directed???
I suspect I will have to follow these suggestions before I get to taste student directed teaching :)
