Teaching Children With ADHD: Classroom Strategies To Engage The Easily Distracted

Teaching Children With ADHD: Classroom Strategies To Engage The Easily Distracted | Educational Topics | Scoop.it

There seems to be one in almost every classroom. That student that just can’t get it together. Maybe it’s the homework that never gets turned in or the desk that resembles a pigpen. Possibly the student is disruptive, blurting out inappropriate remarks or just can’t stop tapping her pencil even when you have asked her a million times to stop.

Maybe Gifted Underachievers Are More Creative - The Creative Mind

Maybe Gifted Underachievers Are More Creative - The Creative Mind | Educational Topics | Scoop.it

“Einstein is a classic example of a highly creative and highly gifted individual that did not do well in traditional school environments.”

 

That is a quote in a research paper by Kyung Hee Kim, PhD, Associate Professor of Educational Psychology at The College of William and Mary.

 

She thinks “the cause of the underachievement of many gifted and talented students may be their creativity, which tends to clash with traditional school environments."

Haley Bugos's curator insight, September 18, 2017 3:03 PM
Using technology to engage students? This is perfect for science education and for grasping student attention. Technology can help for students to become creative and make the most out of their learning but using innovative technology. As the modern science field grows, it is important for the expanse of the classroom in order for students to harbor scientific reasonings.

I agree, Haley--the use of technology is also one of the ways we can allow gifted students continue to learn when the rest of the class is focused on something they already know!

Module 1: Gifted Education and Talent Development Today  
I agreed with the article that technology has some positives and negatives to it. I am wondering if we will ever get to the point where kids are tired of using technology and nothing is new to them. It makes me curious as to what is going to become the next big thing. My school has very spotting internet which has made it complicated to plan for because I am end up coming up with two different lessons in case the internet does not work.
