El autismo es un mundo, conocelo [Megapost] 2 de Abril Día Internacional de Concientización del Autismo ¡Informate!

No existen -al momento- sistemas públicos o privados de escuelas inclusivas en nuestro país ni planes para favorecer su creación. ¿Qué es el Autismo?

6 ways to teach like an artist Note from 11-8-2013: I wrote this post at the end of summer. I've been developing the idea both in writing and by trying to live it out. After three months of that, I wrote a related article here: Five Benefits of Teaching Like an Artist “I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. "I am an artist.... -Emile Zola We've probably all seen the websites and books that encourage us to teach like different things--pirates, rockstars, champions. I like the idea of teaching like an artist, though, because it allows for passion, personality and maybe even some insanity. Artists dream and bring the dreams to life. It's fun to hang out with artists. Our students would have a great time hanging out with people like that day after day. To me, art is love expressed freely. Almost everyone falls in love with another person. School needs more of these people! I could go on, but for now, here's the list: 6 Ways to Teach Like an Artist 1) Think of a new way. 2) Share your work. 5) Risk failure.

METH.ORG The Neuroscience Of Learning: 41 Terms Every Teacher Should Know - TeachThought The Neuroscience Of Learning: 41 Terms Every Teacher Should Know by Judy Willis M.D., M.Ed., As education continues to evolve, adding in new trends, technologies, standards, and 21st century thinking habits, there is one constant that doesn’t change. The human brain. But neuroscience isn’t exactly accessible to most educators, rarely published, and when it is, it’s often full of odd phrasing and intimidating jargon.

THE GELB CENTER Scotland - Brainsmart ENNEAGRAM Copyright © Ewald Berkers The Enneagram system The Enneagram is a personality typing system that consists of nine different types. Everyone is considered to be one single type, although one can have traits belonging to other ones. While it's uncertain whether this type is genetically determined, many believe it is already in place at birth. The nine types (or "enneatypes", "ennea" means "nine") are universally identified by the numbers 1 to 9. People of a particular type have several characteristics in common, but they can be quite different nevertheless. Wings Usually one has characteristics of one of the types that lie adjacent to one's own that are more prominent. To find out which Enneagram type you are, see which description fits you most, or do the free Enneagram Test on this site. Enneagram type descriptions Type 1 - The Reformer Perfectionists, responsible, fixated on improvement Ones are essentially looking to make things better, as they think nothing is ever quite good enough.
