learning and retaining information No one brain is the same size learning styles smaller class sizes multiple methods to be used in the classroom: verbal, hands-on, and visual Brain Rule #3 When surgeons do a brain operation they start off by mapping out the surrounding areas. They have the patient answer questions, point out an object from a picture, or have the patient say what comes to mind when the nurse says a person’s name. This reinforces the theory that each brain is different. Teaching in the Classroom Brain Rules #7 Brain Rules #7 SLEEP WELL, THINK WELL Regularly took naps

It is frequently severe and usually exhibits as an ascending paralysis noted by weakness in the legs that spreads to the upper limbs and the face along with complete loss of deep tendon reflexes.
Guillain–Barré is one of the leading causes of non-trauma-induced paralysis in the world. an autoimmune disorder affecting the peripheral nervous system, usually triggered by an acute infectious process. During my eigth grade school year I was hospitalized for this syndrome. I spent over three months in three different hospitals. I was basically like a baby again, learning to do everything from the beginning. According to Vygotsky socio-cultural learning occurs. Being cooped up in the hospital made me want to do all of my school work as fast as I was able to in order to be caught up when I was released, so I could go back to attending my classes instead of being behind. Being cooped up in the hospital made me want to do all of my school work as fast as I was able to in order to be caught up when I was released, so I could go back to attending my classes instead of being behind. while being in the hospital the environment effected the way I was learning. There was a room in the hospital set aside for schoolwork where a teacher helps those patients. Socio-cultural learning occurred when I was required to write out my answers. I had to learn to hold a pencil as well as re-learning how to write inside the lines in both cursive and print. The learning environment made me want to re-learn all of my abilities so I could get out of there. While the hospital environment was clean and supported my basic needs all it really made me want was to go home. I did all that was asked of me and more during my therapy sessions so I could go home sooner than later. Piaget Assimilation I had to use new tools and techniques in order to even hold a pencil. I moved these techniques and tools into my existing schema on how to write. During my hospital visit I had to incorporate new concepts into my existing schemas. When learning to hold a pencil and write again I had to start over from the beginning. Accomodation My hospital days involved me having a roommate at all times. I went through a few of them as they were released. I had to accommodate my personal space for others. Sometimes my time with the teacher on staff involved having another student in the room. I made sure that i allowed both of us to get time with the teacher but not allowing my own learning to slip. After a month or so in the hospital the staff thought I was strong enough to try walking again. I had to use accommodations to walk. Instead of starting off walking on my own I used a multitude of tools. Using these accommodations made me realize that it was not going to be an easy process. Tools:
Two handed walker
Four pegged cane
One pegged cane
Adaptation The braces were an adaptation I used until I was strong enough. Adaptation occurred when I had to use ankle braces so I could walk. I needed them to support my weak ankles so I could put my full body weight on them. They also helped to keep my ankles at a ninety-degree angle, which my therapists both required. Roy C. Buley Community Center The Buley Commnity Center is a place for children to go after school gets out. They get help with school work as well as have some fun. This semester my class worked with the cener to get them more up to date with their computers and their systems. We spent multiple days going through their computer to see what they had and what they did not have. We talked abut in depth what the centers employees wanted in terms of electronics. My class ended up upgrading their systems as well as adding new programs for the students. There was a binder with paper copies to help with directions on using the software. My class also made digital copies of the directions.
I had a very enjoyable time working with those at the Buley Center. Part One: Each individual learns differently. Every environment envoles learning through the five sences and stimulation. People learn by example or some people have to physically do. The brain consists of short-term and long-term memory. Short-term meory is everyday things whie long-term memory is somehting you will remember years later. Certain environmetns can trigger along-term memory through one of the five senses, whether the memory is a good one or bad one. Everyone learns and develops at their own pace. You cannot except to give a group of people the same information and have them all learn it the same way or in the same time frame.
When working with the Buley Center my themes and topics of understanding learning and development have been reinforced. Watching all of the different children as well as the adults learn the new computers sytems we put in place reaffirmed my thoughts on learning. Everyone learns differently. Some of the adults already new a little about what was shown to them, others had no idea and other still did not want to learn.
Educational institutions (universities, K12 schools) and educators (teachers, professors, corporate
trainers) shoud make considerations when developing instructional opportunities. They need to make sure that they plan on teaching the material in multiple ways so that all of the students get a fai chance to learn the way they do best. Students need to be involved in attention getting projects. Students should be able to have opportunitites to get helpwith school work and studying. Teachers should use different techniques.
Part Two: Emerging technologies provide students and teachers with new opportunities to learn and teach. New computer software that comes out all of the time lets Digital Natives and nondigital natives have new ways to teach informtion. Students will be able to have new technology and new techniques to learn the same information. E-readers, google and chat connections will allow studnets to collaborate with each on assignments. This gives them the opportunity to explore all of the sides of their personality as well as to make friends. Open sources software allows the same information to be learned with different techniques which keeps things less boring and more informative.
As time goes on and technology changes so do our dossiers and identities. Everything we do ges recorded and updated. As we learn so do our identities change. All opportunitites and exchanges and interactions change a persona dn the way they think. The chnage may not be catastrophic but a subtle one. The internet has so muh available that everyone can find something to their liking. There is so much information out there and available for use. People and populations shopuld be taken into account when thinking about technologies. There are people that have no access to computers to those that have had limited access to them as well as those that have computer access daily.
Considerations should be taken into account by institutions, educators, and policy makers and how they think about in order to effectively use emerging
technologies. They need to realize that students learn differently and that some software will work for some while it will not work for others. They need to take into account that as time changes and goes on that they need to be prepared that some of the policies may not be appropriate and need to be changed accordingly. Part Three: I enjoyed participating in class this semester. I attended class all but one time. I did not however get to attend the after class Buley Center meetings because of my work schedule. I participated in group discussions pretty frequently. Other itmes I just enjoyed listening to the conversation that was going on. I intereacted wth other studets on a daily basis. I enjoyed talking to the other students in the class. I had a good time interacting with others on the Buley Project. It was fun trying to figure out how we should proceed with teaching the adults at the Center. I worked on facbook and the google account for the center. I also did a few screen casts regarding facbook. I also tyoed up the whole list of user names and passwords for all of our changes. I participated in discussions regarding what exactly we were going to do, what was a good idea that they might use in the long run. I could have improved my participation in being ale to go to the center after class to teach the employees as well as to update the computers. I worked with miranda on the facebok account and the cambells soup labels. I learned about myself this semester that I generally work well with strangers. I like taking on new projects and seeing what ideas I can come up with. These insights will help me in my future career as a teacher. I need to be able to improvise and get used to working with strangers as well as those that have more experience then I do. This will impac how i work with my collegues and students. Part Four: Quite honestly i enjoyed the class just the way it was. I liked it when we got out of the classroom to have our group discussions. I think incorporating more activities and less long lectures would be a good thing. The Buley Center Project was a good idea and worked very well to incorporate everything we were learing through Brain Rules and the other books.
