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.

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.

"Whether you’re practicing flipped or blended learning in your classroom, set the occasional video assignment, or have just observed that your students are part of the Netflix generation, you’ve likely seen what a powerful tool video can be for teaching and learning. And, while there’s certainly a wealth of great educational content available online, sometimes you — and your students — will want to create your own.

Best of all, you probably have most of the tools you need sitting on your desk right now. In this guide we’ll cover everything you need to know to produce educational and instructional videos using your PC and webcam. Why create your own video content?"

Step by Step: Designing Personalized Learning Experiences For Students

Step by Step: Designing Personalized Learning Experiences For Students | Visual*~*Revolution | Scoop.it

As with most education jargon, the phrase isn’t fixed, but it usually connects to the idea that not all students need the same thing at the same time. It implies choice, multiple pathways to learning, many ways to demonstrate competency and resists the notion that all students learn the same way.
