A nice videoscribe  about the difference between fast and slow thinking.  Theres a useful reference to the concept of "priming" which operates out of conscious awareness.  Graphic and visual coaching creates the space for the client to do some slow thinking and resolve challenges that fast thinking hasn't reolved.

In fact,30 percent of new teachers quit before three years and almost 50 percent quit before five years.

 

The biggest reason for leaving? Nope, not pay. It's a little more complex than that. The biggest reason for leaving was the culture.

 

It was satisfaction with working conditions, which included relationships with colleagues, quality of professional development, quality of the curriculum, building conditions, etc.

Lou Salza's curator insight, May 16, 2013 8:53 AM

I have been using text to speech almost exclusively for reading articles on the web, newspapers, and courese reading for a course in Leadership I am taking at Case Western Reserve University. I love the e-readers ( Read and Write Gold; Kindle, and Audio books)  because I can jack up the speed and read with my ears as fast as non dyslexics who are fluent readers read with their eyes. We need to understand the 'cost' of eye reading to dyslexic students even when they "graduate" from OG or Wilson: the burden of phonological processing is too high in terms of fatigue. If we don't make the technology more available and acceptable in schools we will deny intelligent students with print challenges the opportunity to study in college, graduate or professional schools. 

I still read paper books.  Right now I am reading  A light in August by Faulkner. It is on my night stand and it is a wonderful if slow experience for me. For some, print will never 'fall away' and allow for effortless decoding and pholonological recoding.--Lou  

 

Excerpt:

"Understanding how reading on paper is different from reading on screens requires some explanation of how the brain interprets written language. We often think of reading as a cerebral activity concerned with the abstract—with thoughts and ideas, tone and themes, metaphors and motifs. As far as our brains are concerned, however, text is a tangible part of the physical world we inhabit. In fact, the brain essentially regards letters as physical objects because it does not really have another way of understanding them. As Wolf explains in her book Proust and the Squid, we are not born with brain circuits dedicated to reading. After all, we did not invent writing until relatively recently in our evolutionary history, around the fourth millennium B.C. So the human brain improvises a brand-new circuit for reading by weaving together various regions of neural tissue devoted to other abilities, such as spoken language, motor coordination and vision..."

How To Combat Student Plagiarism - Edudemic

How To Combat Student Plagiarism - Edudemic | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it

As teachers, when we assign a research project, we often focus on the end product: the research essay, presentation, etc. However, students (especially young students) do not automatically know how to conduct meaningful research. Our modern students are used to Googling answers. They have grown accustomed to information being readily available. However, as academics, we know that research isn’t a  fast process. It’s slow and deliberate. As a teacher, I need to intentionally slow my students down during this exercise. I do this by breaking down a larger project into more manageable chunks and focusing on the process.

The Hyperconnected Life [Infographic]

The Hyperconnected Life [Infographic] | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it

Life before the internet? Today's teens and young adults only know about the  digitally connected world. But how is their hyperconnecting affecting them?

 

To find out, Pew  Internet & American Life Project did some research then published its  findings in the Teens and Technology 2013 report. That information was used  to create the following infographic by InternetProvider.

 

Among the research findings...

80% of teens own a computer.78% of teens own a cellphone.37% of teens own a smartphone.

So, how is hyperconnectivity affecting the younger generation?

The technology experts and shareholders surveyed were divided evenly in their  opinion regarding whether being hyperconnectivity was a positive or a  negative.

 

The positives for being hyperconnected include...

    Being adept at finding answers to deep questions efficiently.Becoming quick-acting multitaskers.Learning more information quickly.

The negatives for being hyperconnected include...

    Developing a need for instant gratification.Lacking deep-thinking capabilities.Lacking face-to-face social skills.

To find out more about the research findings, check out the following  infographic.
