    She is indeed talking about the exceptions, although I do doubt how deep her understanding to gifted-ness is. BTW I agree your assertion that a genius will not call another genius "genius". Giftedness can be a curse more than a blessing.

    Balance and Math

    "The interdisciplinary project »Schne- cke – Bildung braucht Gesundheit I« (Cochlea – education needs health I), a cross-sectional study with hearing, sight and balance tests involving around 8,000 pupils of all school types and ages in Hessen, Germany, showed, that around two thirds of all pupils show at least slight abnormalities in balance tests, demonstrating a clear correlation with school performance in German, mathematics and physical education." taken from: http://www.bildung-kommt-ins-gleichg.../Snail_3_1.pdf

    They said in the german magazine for health that if you are good at spatial orientation you are good with abstract range of numbers. They go on saying good at spatial orientation= very good balance/poise ...

    Also interesting: http://ganesha.uoregon.edu/images/3/...et_al_2000.pdf

    Geometry does have a lot to do with space. And you (body) are the first tool ever that you (mind) use and the one you use most. I would say a brush is just a modified extension of the finger.

    Did u watch the movie "Akeelah and the Bee"? The girl is learning for the spelling bee contest she uses her hands to tap rhythmically against her leg and remembers the words much better. Thats what people do to orient themselves, like blind people.
    Balance to me has a lot to do with rhythm.
    Btw what was Akeelah doing unconsciously?

    Thats why music is so popular (space, rhythm and emotion)

    "general intelligence" I believe that. What would it be in your case?

    Organizing Information

    I mean you have a lot of books, documents, notebooks, magazines and papers..
    and to be able to get back at them at any time or hour (effectively! make it as easy as possible) how does one do that? Do you print out the summaries, add to every different one another color and so on ?)
    Because I collect so much information but I don't use it because I hate searching (min 3hours) for it. I want it quick. Should I reduce the information to like some sentences but then in the future I don't get what the hell I meant. Does anybody have the same problem?

    How good am I?

    How do I know how good the other person really that i am comparing abilities to is?
    Thats why there are competitions.. xD
    My dream then was to be an artist.
    I had an art teacher in the 7th grade and she told me I was really good technically but not artistically. Now I don't draw anymore...But I am going to master something and I wish to be the one who determines how good I am by my scale and work and reflection with that scale.
    Is it the awards, is it the title, is it the feeling, is it the experience? Is it everything all together?

    Knowing, believing and being sure is hard work!

    Hey Ikso! You are so cool. Today an article said if you good with orientation, Balance, estimation of distance (bodily) you are also good in maths. This May not be true for everyone But probably the majority who r naturally good at maths. Thats how the egyptians started measuring land. With their Arms and steps. What do you think? And to generalize.. is it that we have to first have a bodily spacial super awareness to be good at abstraction ? And .... How do you organize the big Information data you collect? How do you know how good you are? I User this to understand where i am at : "blooms taxonomy" if u are interested in thinking processes ready the book "thinking fast, thinking slow" greetz

    That was my question, too. Something the kids are all watching on the Youtunes, I guess.

    Any advice for someone newly entering the world of education? I'm not a natural teacher, but want to get better.

    Thank you for pointing that out. I am so sensitive to environmental stimuli.

    My use of the word "personalized" was somewhat tongue-in-cheek. I used it because it seems to be one of those eduspeak words of the moment. It seems to be showing up where "differentiation" used to live. One of the ideas I like to push is that all students need IEPs. One of the questions I have is "do all students need to acquire all skills?" Are standards like the CCSS the ones we really should be aiming towards or are there other standards that are more needed that address things like compassion or community?

    Perhaps I read into your statement about a focus on student learning producing better outcomes than a focus on teaching but it seems to imply a critique of both a stringent focus on pedagogical methods AND the content of what needs to be taught. If we focus on student learning we focus on where they are at, what they lack, as you have pointed out, in most cases, but also what they are interested in (if they are interested in anything at all - some students need help finding their interests). Should teachers provide a push or pull? or both?

    Personally, I have always been an independent learner and for that reason see it as an ideal but I realize, partially through MBTI and other psychological instruments and theories, that my ideal isn't ideal for everyone. Even so, I think it is a good model.

    treistmanjy commented on Why Do I Keep Getting Banned?
    I don't know about the rest of this thread but I made note of "And yes, I am better than most teachers in terms of student learning outcomes, however, this was most definitely not always the case, especially in my earlier years when I focused on teaching instead of student learning" which I find to be a very insightful thought in regards to teaching. I've been reviewing some of my exchanges with forum members over the past year with the goal of finding other teachers. I'm a 10 year veteran second career educator (I was in tbe food and wine biz for 23 years), now a school librarian lookijng to branch into consulting and this idea that you've posted is at the heart of what I would like to offer "personalized" learning and life long learning. So, hey hey!

    Yes I'm trying to teach myself math, python programming, and another language. Math becomes intuitive but there are still rules to remember. For programming I want to memorize the spelling of key words and basically the syntax since I keep having problems which are syntax based. For another language.. yeah I literally want to add as much words a day to my vocabulary as possible. I want to master the concepts of mathematics so I can recall them verbatim as well as the syntax while programming. I don't need to master everything though. For the language I just want to understand what the words mean upon hearing them.

    Hello I spoke to you before about memory and recall. I just wanted to know if you have any links to information about that?

    I am a psychologist (forensic), and what happens in asia do happen anywhere else. But some people tend to mask lots of things just to prove their lives are way more contented than everyone else on this planet. I notice that you are into cognitive psychology. Then you would understand that kind of behaviour. I don't want to write its term here.

    it has nothing to do with the country/community he's living in. he's just one of those rare lucky people who have everything good going on for him. I am in that part of region where he's living too, but I have witnessed the worst parts of people's attitude,. so either he is just so fortunate or we all are the unfortunate ones

    Can I check out some of your art sometime if you got any up? It'd be fun. So rare too. I don't know anyone with any real interest in it.

    You won't let anyone see your work, so everything you say here matters not, since it's just your personal bias.

    I can express far more than my technical ability allows me to - because my technical ability does not control my expression. this is what you are unable to conceive.

    It's not as constrained as you'd like it to be either. You're very technically-minded, I get that. I don't think you really understand expression though, and how it transcends technicality. This is probably because you are not a very expressive person, and while that's not a fault, it is a limiting quality in its own right artistically.
