How online education benefits introverted students (essay)

How online education benefits introverted students (essay) | Individual and Special Needs Examiner | Scoop.it
Joe told me that after his high school graduation, he’d put off college because of his fears of the classroom environment. He’d decided to enroll in this, one class at his local community college, because he had the option to take his courses online. Joe loved the online environment, and rather than feeling like it was his second-best option or that he was a second-best learner, he was empowered and eager. I imagined him pursuing his degree while maturity had a chance to do its job, gaining confidence in his ideas in written form first so that he could begin to take more extroverted baby steps in the future.

Interesting read. There are pros and cons to everything, but in this case, I agree that extraversion gets more respect than its due.

A Beginner's Guide to Station-Based Learning - STEM JOBS

A Beginner's Guide to Station-Based Learning - STEM JOBS | Individual and Special Needs Examiner | Scoop.it

"Innovative classrooms are introducing station-based learning to better engage students and provide more helpful feedback for teachers.

Station-based learning is true to its name: it allows students to rotate through stations, learning in smaller groups adaptable to each student’s individual needs. Khan Academy offers a more thorough definition in a video explaining the model:

"In a Station Rotation, within a given course or subject (such as math) students rotate at fixed points in time – that is, on a fixed schedule or at the teacher’s discretion – between different learning stations, at least one of which is an online learning station. Other stations might include activities such as small-group or full-class instruction, group projects, individual tutoring, and pencil-and-paper assignments. Some implementations involve the entire class alternating among activities together, whereas others divide the class into small-group rotations. In the Station Rotation model, students rotate through all of the stations."

Imagine for a moment that all human beings had the same IQ, but that some of us knew how to tap into it better than others. How would we approach education differently?

tout le problème est de l'intégrer dans les cours. 

Nick van Breda's curator insight, October 22, 2014 11:58 AM

Interesting article. Reflections…. Self worth and achievement seem to be linked together in most of Western Society. We personalise events in our life and then begin to live from our memories, gaining a false sense of identity instead of seeing it simply as a series of skills to learn. 

Takeaways: 

"people who think about their own learning, make a habit of asking questions, use what they’ve learned, teach what they’ve learned to others, and enjoy the learning process on an intrinsic level all become better learners"

"these are all strategies and habits that can be adopted through practice… The smartest, most successful people in the world wouldn’t be where they are today if they weren’t skilled learners. So let’s examine which strategies we should be perfecting and how they can serve us in the long run."

Innovate My School - Why Art is a vital part of education

Innovate My School - Why Art is a vital part of education | Individual and Special Needs Examiner | Scoop.it
Schools are doing more to extend the parameters of the learning experience, and frequently see lessons taking place in assembly halls, school fields and playgrounds, kitchens and music rooms. “Schools are doing more to extend the parameters of the learning experience.”Arts subjects are often the catalyst for taking a class further afield, and provide children with opportunities to break the mold of the regular classroom setting, and of what constitutes academic work. Infant- and junior-school age children can see particular benefit from expanding the possibilities of school in this way.


Arts subjects hold much more promise than simply getting children out of the classroom. They can help young children develop their skills and competencies in interesting ways, in a relaxed and pressure-free environment. These are some of the ways in which your children can grow and learn through art.
