Why attitude is important

Why my attitude is so important? Well because it affects my actions which are behaviours and words.

Personalized learning – a data revolution

Who doesn’t want a world in which everything they interact with is tailored personally to them?The advent of big data and machine learning has moved us towards a place where this vision is being realized at an incredibly rapid pace, fueled by our ability to capture and store everything about ourselves – from the keystrokes on our computers to our genetic sequences and DNA.

How Social is Social Media?

Better technology, faster and omnipresent internet connection, and the existence of social networking sites have changed the way we communicate with each other and what we share about ourselves. If you – like me – have a Facebook account you may have shared information with people that you haven’t seen in years and that you probably will not ever encounter face-to-face for a coffee or an old-fashioned chat in your life again. At the same time, you possibly are a constant consumer of pieces and bits of other people’s lives that they decide to share on Facebook. People are spending ...

Understanding, Diagnosing, and Coping with Slow Processing Speed

It's not unusual for gifted students to have slow processing speed. Of itself, slow processing speed is not a formal learning disability, but having it can frustrate students, teachers, and parents. As a clinical child psychologist specializing in assessing and treating students with attention deficit disorders and other learning problems, I often hear parents tell me their very bright child isn't finishing her classwork or that homework takes hours and hours to complete. Through observation or formal assessment of their child, these parents have been told that the child has slow processing speed.Understanding the role of slow ...

How Audiobooks Can Help Kids Who Struggle with Reading

School librarian Mary Ann Scheuer remembers a second grader who couldn’t keep up with the class during reading time. The child was a grade-level behind in reading, and while the rest of the class could sit quietly for 30 minutes, engrossed in Horrible Harry, this child began to act out after ten frustrating minutes with the book. On Scheuer’s recommendation, the teacher introduced the student to the same story via an audiobook; he listened to the story, and then sat alone with the book to read on his own.

A Few Strategies to Help Slow-Working Students

A parent recently asked me for advice about her son. Although his academic skills are strong, he feels the need to complete every task to absolute perfection; this means he finishes his work long, long after the rest of his peers. Not only are his teachers frustrated by the time it takes him to complete assignments, he doesn’t especially enjoy spending hours every night making all of his work just right.It’s easy enough to say we want all our students to work at their own pace, and in most classrooms, some flexibility is built in to allow ...
