Disabilities vs Differing abilities

Posted on September 14, 2012 at 8:01pm 0 Comments

As I have been travelling internationally speaking on assistive technology, I have been tuning into the fact that we tend to use the idea of disabilities incorrectly.  We tend to use it as a category where we can place children or adults who have issues causing them to be outside of the "norm."  The more I meet these people, the more I see that they have differing abilities from us, but still have a voice (figuratively) and a story to be told.  Do they lack certain abilities that we have,…

Why do we need Social Media in schools today? Facts versus Truths.

Posted on August 14, 2012 at 4:06pm 0 Comments

Musing on Education moving from local to global to universal

Before moving into my current role of consulting, I always looked forward to the summer months as a time for reflection and further growth. I was one of those teachers who enjoyed teaching and taking classes in the summer, along with picking up a part-time job to make sure I could make ends meet. The summer permitted lots of time for good reflection on my own personal teaching and on education as a whole. I still like to take some time each summer and review the overall state of education and… Continue
