This is a great video to watch that defines what learning disabilities are.  It is important to note that students with learning disabilities do have average intelligence, they just have a "glitch" or two in the learning process!

Mind or Concept Mapping: Differences and Similarities

Mind or Concept Mapping: Differences and Similarities | Easy to Use Resources for Special Education Students! | Scoop.it

Concept mapping and mind mapping are powerful graphic organizers, strategies for organizing and representing knowledge. They were developed during the seventies.The terms may seem to be interchangeable, but there are some differences in the way they are created and used.

Baiba Svenca's curator insight, April 10, 2013 11:19 AM

For some people mind mapping and concept mapping may represent the same technique, however, there are some differences. This article compares these two terms and lists their similarities and differences in a simple mind map (or a concept map?).

Veenaga Bhushan's curator insight, April 10, 2013 7:42 PM

While discussing, it is logic, the psycology, the better half. Once you decided to start with it is the best half, to go with the Science the proven subject, which needs some more reaserch for the betterment of the society. From this point the Science and Phylosophy go to gether, no body is not sure of the output. Respect each other and make the points to be solved and tobe promoted. No love, no fear, makes way for justice.

Educators and teachers often require the use of feature rich applications to create presentations,diagrams, mind maps, etc. Having tools like Microsoft PowerPoint is always handy for teaching a class, however sometimes the requirements of a teacher may be more complex than the use of a simple presentation software like PowerPoint.

Inspiring

Julie Newman's curator insight, November 15, 2013 8:43 AM

I found this article very inspirational because it describes a teacher, Jane Good, who did not give up on her special needs students, as the school system was prior to her arrival. Before she came to her current school, her special needs students were placed in broken-down classrooms where they were given no attention and very low expectations. Good was able to guide her students in overcoming these obstacles with the help of a technology grant she received allowing her to supply everyone of her students with an iPad. These iPads allowed students to accomplish goals no one ever thought was possible for them. For example, one student who had never written before due to his lack of fine motor skills wrote his first word on the iPad. Similarly, three other students were able to learn to read though the iPad's stimulating and interactive features. After reading this article, I found that the iPad and other technologies truly helped children with special needs step outside the limitations previously established for them by the school system and make progress no one ever believed could be made. This alone shows me how powerful this tool can be in a special needs classroom. These students need to be stimulated through interactive learning and the iPad provides just that. I have found a lot of research that agrees with this article and proves that technology is a necessity in the special needs classroom.
