The People’s Guide to Spatial Thinking

The People’s Guide to Spatial Thinking | beelddenkers & opvolgen van acties | Scoop.it

"One of our colleagues and leaders in spatial thinking in education, Dr. Diana Stuart Sinton, has written a book entitled The People’s Guide to Spatial Thinking, along with colleagues Sarah Bednarz, Phil Gersmehl, Robert Kolvoord, and David Uttal.  As the name implies, the book provides an accessible and readable way for students, educators, and even the general public to understand what spatial thinking is and why it matters.  It “help[s] us think across the geographies of our life spaces, physical and social spaces, and intellectual space.”  Dr. Sinton pulls selections from the NRC’s Learning to Think Spatially report and ties them to everyday life.  In so doing, she also provides ways for us in the educational community to think about teaching these concepts and skills in a variety of courses.   Indeed, as she points out, spatial thinking is particularly essential within science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, as well as geography."  - See more at: ESRI's GIS Education Community blog.

When it comes to implementing creativity, taking that next step can be challenging.

If State content standards were designed to be the floor beneath which no child would fall;  how then did they become the aspiration

 for so many districts?  And where  between the floor and ceiling do the new standards-- the so called 'Common Core' stack up? And where do creativity, collaboration, compassion and problem solving enter in to the curriculum conversation? --just askin' --Lou

 

Excerpt: "....In a recent interview with NPR, Margo Figgins, the founder of the Young Writers Workshop of the University of Virginia, called creativity “the orphan of today’s rush to standardization.” Sir Ken Robinson echoes this in one of the most widely viewed TED Talks of all time, “How Schools Kill Creativity.”

But contrary to what the standards prescribe, they aren’t meant to dictate classroom instruction, says Alane Starko in her EL article, “Creativity on the Brink?” They’re “intended to be the floor of learning, not the ceiling. So when dealing with the standards, let your mantra be ‘Take the next step.’”

When it comes to implementing creativity, taking that next step can be challenging. “Creativity is often associated with fun, fluff, and frills,” say Ronald Beghetto and James Kaufman in “Fundamentals of Creativity.” As such, creative students are often considered “daydreamy, distracted, or disruptive: traditionally negative attributes in the classroom,” adds Jessica Roake in “The Creativity Imperative” from the October issue of Education Update...."

ADHD...And Gifted? Learn to recognize Twice-Exceptional Students by Lynne Ticknor

ADHD...And Gifted? Learn to recognize Twice-Exceptional Students by Lynne Ticknor | beelddenkers & opvolgen van acties | Scoop.it
A child with attention deficit and comorbid learning disabilities can also be a gifted student, or 2e. Do you know how to spot a twice-gifted student and help him reach his full potential?

Clear and concise review of the issues relevant to understanding twice exceptional kids.--Lou

 

Excerpt: "....Many parents and teachers don’t realize that a child can be gifted and have learning disabilities, a combination called “twice exceptional,” or 2e. Debra Hori, an education therapist, didn’t. Her son, Ben, was diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADD/ADHD) at age eight, but it took three years to learn that his verbal skills and IQ were well above average. “He was tested, and he scored in the gifted range,” says Hori. “I decided to enroll him in a different school that accommodated all of his needs,” she explains. “It made a world of difference.”

Intellectually gifted children with special needs often have a rough time in school. Their gifts mask their special needs, and their special needs hide their academic ability. As a result, they are usually labeled “lazy,” “unmotivated,” or “slackers.”

Several factors contribute to the delayed diagnosis of gifted students. Inattention and other ADD/ADHD symptoms may result in lower scores on tests used to determine eligibility for gifted programs. Also, teachers are less likely to notice ADD/ADHD symptoms in students who are not disruptive. Parents are likely to be skeptical of an ADD/ADHD diagnosis when they know their child is bright. Remember, though, that a high IQ alone is not enough to be successful in school. Working memory, say experts, is a better predictor than any test result....."

The Importance of Spatial Thinking Now

The Importance of Spatial Thinking Now | beelddenkers & opvolgen van acties | Scoop.it

spatial thinking, visualization, contemporary cartography, and the other core competencies of geographic education have never been more relevant or necessary. As this forum has made clear, data visualization is an emerging, important discipline, and spatial thinking—geography—is a fundamental skill for good data visualization.

Please teacher, more games!

Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 2014 8:19 AM

Self explanatory visual on the benefits of gaming as a means of learning. Outlined are the rewards, mastery, engagement, intensity, exercise, readiness, and competitiveness. These types of graphics need to be displayed in the classroom. There's always parents who are unsure of how gaming qualifies as teaching. Can't they just sit their kid in front of an iPad all day at home? Well, in the appropriate setting, with the right direction and guidance, games are certainly good for learning. Some people just don't know that from experience yet.
