Makerology-DO-ing Changes YOU!

Makerology-DO-ing Changes YOU! | Visual*~*Revolution | Scoop.it

Technology is just like anything else. Cooking, Oil Painting, Fixing a Car Engine, and Building IKEA Furniture.  Some things come natural to us and some don’t.   So if we are really going to help others learn something, it won’t start with a set of instructions or a training session. It will start with a conversation, empathy, and the time to figure out how to best deliver the help.  Relationships. This might only take a few minutes, but it will be worth more than any of the other time spent.

HBO: The Big Picture Rethinking Dyslexia

The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia provides personal and uplifting accounts of the dyslexic experience from children, experts and iconic leaders, such as Sir Richard Branson and financier Charles Schwab. Directed by James Redford, the film not only clears up the misconceptions about the condition, but also paints a picture of hope for all who struggle with it. Proving that dyslexia is a neurological issue and not a character flaw, The Big Picture beautifully illustrates that while the condition is an obstacle, it also carries some unique advantages.
