Technology stimulates minds in ways that make a profound and lasting difference, especially in the classroom. It can be used to adapt curriculum to diverse learners or to express material in ways not possible prior to the creation of new technologies. Learning Tools and Teaching Applications through ICT Advancements provides research regarding introducing, collaborating, analyzing, synthesizing, and evaluating innovative contributions to the theory, practice, and research of technology education applicable to K-12 education, higher education, and corporate and proprietary education. It grows this body of research, proposing new applications of technology for teaching and learning, and documenting those practices that contribute irrefutable verification of information technology education as a discipline.

A Color Solution to Your Child's Light-based Reading Difficulties
Author: Rhonda Stone
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
Category: Family & Relationships
The Light Barrier: One family's journey to understand a barrier to reading that may affect millions of children and adults worldwide. Countless children with Irlen syndrome, involving sensitivity to aspects of light, have been misunderstood as lazy, slow, inattentive, dyslexic, ADHD, or just plain "troubled," when, in fact, what they suffer from is a correctable problem. Rhonda Stone's daughter Katie was struggling at school, despite hours of help each night with homework. She also complained of physical discomfort and constant difficulties with seeing and reading, even though she passed repeated vision exams. By chance, while looking for a solution to help her child, this mother encountered a controversial but scientifically proven solution that has already helped thousands. Her personal story shares with readers the latest information gathered from three continents and shows what can be done about this highly prevalent, commonly overlooked, but readily addressed problem.

Jordan's book is a valuable tool for those who work with and educate individuals with dyslexia. Now in its third edition, Overcoming Dyslexia in Children, Adolescents, and Adults tells the story of dyslexia in a positive, hopeful way. Overcoming Dyslexia leads the reader through simple, clear descriptions of the learning and social patterns of students who are dyslexic. The book summarizes in easy-to-understand language what science knows today about the causes of the different forms of dyslexia. All forms of dyslexia are described in detail. Illustrations of how dyslexia impacts classroom learning, social behavior, emotional maturity, job performance, and personal development are also provided. Chapter 1 summarizes remarkable new information about how genetic codes determine brain development and how differences in brain structure cause dyslexia. Chapter 2 explains the perceptual and emotional nature of dyslexia. Chapter 3 describes the problems of poor central vision for reading and attention deficit disorders that often exist beneath the surface of dyslexia. Chapters 4 through 6 describe the four most common subtypes of this learning difference: visual dyslexia, auditory dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia. Chapter 7 describes the emotions, feelings, and moods that trip up struggling learners with failure and low self-confidence. Chapter 8 tells about the nonverbal learning disabilities and social-emotional learning disabilities that often accompany dyslexia. Chapter 8 also presents strategies for developing effective social skills and learning to live independently. Chapter 9 tells dynamic victory stories of how eight prominent adults overcame dyslexic challenges in their lives. Finally, the appendices provide assessment techniques to help teachers and parents identify types of dyslexia, attention deficits, and other kinds of differences that make classroom learning and social success difficult for 20% of our population.

Overview, Abstracts, and Guide to Books

Researchers have devoted considerable attention to how people learn to read, specifically how they recognise, pronounce, and understand printed words. These studies are helping to illuminate not only the normal process of learning to read but also the problems that may underlie dyslexia, a condition in which people are unable to acquire a high degree of reading skill despite adequate intelligence and training. When reading instruction begins, children (as well as adult learners) already possess large spoken-word vocabularies. Their initial task is to learn how these spoken words correspond to written alphabetic symbols. Impairments in this reading skill are often seen among children who have problems learning in school. Dyslexia is a brain-based type of learning disability that specifically impairs a person's ability to read. These individuals typically read at levels significantly lower than expected despite having normal intelligence. Although the disorder varies from person to person, common characteristics among people with dyslexia are difficulty with phonological processing (the manipulation of sounds) and/or rapid visual-verbal responding.
