Great to see more people sharing their dyslexia stories, how they found what they really had a passion for, and grew in confidence.

Why it is important to bear these issues in mind when technologies are used to deliver learning and teaching. These student can learn just like anyone else, they just need to have their difficulties understood.

5 Scholarships for Students With Learning Disabilities

5 Scholarships for Students With Learning Disabilities | Reading Enrichment And Development | Scoop.it

"Getting into, paying for, and navigating through college is rarely easy. For students who have been diagnosed with learning disabilities (LD), that struggle can take on even more dimensions.

Learning-related issues such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) often lead to difficulties in traditional classrooms and on standardized tests; if scholarship applications look foremost at test scores and GPAs, it can mean that LD students lose out. Fortunately, there are resources and scholarships out there that can help."

So what is close reading?

So what is close reading? | Reading Enrichment And Development | Scoop.it

"If you came into our classes and asked our students what close reading is, what they’d probably describe is something that can be boiled down to this: the careful interpretation of a text wherein which readers pay close attention to the way ideas unfold as they read. Often, this involves annotating texts for the sake of slowing ourselves down and recording our thinking so that we can do cool stuff with what you read."

Listen up: Abnormality in auditory processing underlies dyslexia

Listen up: Abnormality in auditory processing underlies dyslexia | Reading Enrichment And Development | Scoop.it

People with dyslexia often struggle with the ability to accurately decode and identify what they read. Although disrupted processing of speech sounds has been implicated in the underlying pathology of dyslexia, the basis of this disruption and how it interferes with reading comprehension has not been fully explained. Now, new research finds that a specific abnormality in the processing of auditory signals accounts for the main symptoms of dyslexia.

Dyslexia at Work: Strengths and Implications for Education

Dyslexia at Work: Strengths and Implications for Education | Reading Enrichment And Development | Scoop.it

Look at our survey of skills and strengths that were reported by adult dyslexics in the workplace. The top 4: 

 

- seeing from multiple perspectives

- ability to visualize

- problem solving, reasoning

- able to to see the 'big picture' and what happens next

 

These are a fantastic set of strengths that would cross all disciplines and fields - from science and engineering, to art and multimedia, humanities and entrepreneurship. 

 

But this gifts and talents are not even on the radar for most students. They don't easily fall into one of the 'multiple intelligences' or most gifted checklists. And these are strengths better suited to real life beyond the K-12 classroom.

 

Shouldn't we make sure that the educational process for dyslexic students is helping expand these strengths and abilities?

BYOD School Tells Students, "Buy a Calculator Because You Can Cheat with Your iPads!"

BYOD School Tells Students, "Buy a Calculator Because You Can Cheat with Your iPads!" | Reading Enrichment And Development | Scoop.it

Can you believe this? 

 

My daughter goes to a 20th century school that mistakingly thinks it embraces 21st century learning simply because it allows students to bring their own device. This is particularly frustrating to me since I speak on this very subject at schools and conferences around the country. 

 

"Daddy, I need to buy a scientific calculator for math class!" I respond, "Oh sweetie, you're so cute. No one with a brand new iPad mini needs to buy a physical calculator any more. Just tell me what functions you need it to do and I'll help you find the right app." To which she says, "No. We're not allowed to use our iPads or phones. The teacher says we can cheat that way by texting, IMing, or emailing answers to each other." *facepalm*

 

I would like to crowdsource here and ask for comments as to how to best deliver my email to this school's academic director.

 

Thanks in advance!

Jo Blannin - Innovative Learning's comment, May 7, 2013 10:56 PM
totally disagree! teach them to source information from wherever - where does 'cheating' actually fit these days? Isn't crowd sourcing your answer a good strategy - just like you're doing?!?!?
Leslie Hays's comment, May 10, 2013 11:01 AM
The teacher could think about creating an assignment that involves much more than crunching numbers, and requires analysis, hypothesis proposal and other key scientific research skills that make using a Sci Calculator out of date - the whole notion of cheating is outdated.
