Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 30, 2015 9:51 AM

Gifted education often talks about the twice-exceptional learner - one whose intellectual gifts are coupled and often masked by a learning disability.  There is also a phenomena of the gifted student who lives in a state of poverty.  Often trapped in a high poverty school that focuses on remediation and intervention.  Poverty schools must embrace a growth mindset about students, believing that every student can develop their gifts and talents.  They must differentiate the learning experiences that provide pathways for students to access deeper learning with complex thinking within the content.  This is a tall order for teachers who are burdened with learning gaps, behavior problems, and social issues...but with over 50% of our students living in poverty, we cannot afford to miss the development of the gifts and talents that lie buried under poverty.

This article shares the idea on how all learners are not the same, we need to strive to teach to all their styles as best possible.

Kiruthika Ragupathi's curator insight, February 4, 2016 4:01 AM

How do we develop the "Growth mindset" in us -- to see intelligence as something that can be cultivated: the more learning we do, the smarter we become

Stat-heavy article from MIT and Harvard.  They claim the MOOCs are still sustainable despite some trends showing downward interest.  Could still have good stats for final presentation, though.

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, March 22, 2015 1:37 PM

I don't think we can blame terrible writing skills on Twitter. Twitter was founded in 2006 and student writing was terrible LONG before that. Twitter might have made the battle for decent writing skills more difficult, but it is not the sole contributor to the problem. More coming in a blog and not just because I need well over 140 characters.

Nicholas C. Rossis's curator insight, March 24, 2015 11:09 AM

Interesting facts.  I agree that social media have led us to use abbreviations and forget how to write in a more ... traditional way. This could be a niche market!

WEAC's curator insight, April 1, 2015 10:13 AM

"How can students who have essentially made a lifestyle of short, segmented, slang-ridden writing conform to the formal communication still expected in the real world? It starts with teachers who set high standards and do not waver."
