I have the power to change what I believe.

I recognize the impact my beliefs have on how I feel and behave. Believing something about a situation determines how events progress. What I think and feel about another person affects how I relate to that person. My beliefs in myself determine how I perform.



However, I can choose what I believe. If I want to see a situation differently, I have the power to do so.

The Evolution of Special Education

Graham Bell and Einstein are two brilliant minds of science who struggled due to learning disabilities.  Learning disabilities don’t necessarily affect aptitude, yet how students are taught and directed impacts social and educational achievements.  Today’s minds are the brilliant scientists, teachers, and mothers of the future.  Proper schooling and social adjustment within warrants the attention of those doctoring and administering laws regarding the trajectory of special education.…

An Evolution of Learning: Have the Tools of Science Superceded "Hands-On" Exploration and Education?

It is acknowledged that tools help with the "perception" of knowledge. The magnifying glass, the telescope, and the microscope were objects that opened up an entirely new world. It is also acknowledged that people's fingers are too big to examine an amoeba, and people can't just walk up to the moon.



The other biggie in the knowledge game was "the drawing", the recording of information, but further to this was the "sequential" recording of data, which led…

STEM to STEAM

RSID's (Rhode Island School Of Design) participation in promoting STEAM, is only part of a greater groundswell of the appreciation of a balanced, project based learning platform.

 

Art and science ALSO encompasses the humanities. I have spoken to this in terms of the process of creating animation (Animating STEM) regarding the idea of knowledge being relayed through story AND the subtext of metaphor. When one sees the multiple levels of learning, complementing and resonating between…
