This Is What Happens When A Kid Leaves Traditional Education

This Is What Happens When A Kid Leaves Traditional Education

Logan Laplante is a 13 year-old boy who was taken out of the education system to be home schooled instead. Not only was he home schooled, but Logan had the ability to tailor his education to his interests and also his style of learning, something traditional education does not offer. As Logan has mentioned, when he grows up he wants to be happy and healthy. At a TEDx talk in 2013, he discussed how hacking his education is helping him achieve that goal.

School & Experts Put Genius Boy In Special Ed. Now He’s Free & On Track For Nobel Prize

A young genius whose IQ is said said to be  higher than Albert Einstein, is on his way to possibly winning a Nobel Prize after dropping out of elementary school and his special ed programs. From a young age, Jacob Barnett was very interested in Math and Physics. Numbers were his passion and he was getting bored of early grades of elementary school as they did not come close to challenging him. Finally, his parents made the decision to take him out of public school and special ed programs regardless of the fact doctors had diagnosed him with ASD.
 “For a parent, it’s terrifying to fly against the advice of the professionals. But I knew in my heart that if Jake stayed in special ed, he would slip away.” Jacob’s mother.

38 Effective Strategies for Classroom Management

How to Motivate Your Students and Get Them to Listen to You 

(38 Effective Strategies for Classroom Management) -

This article gives 38 effective strategies for classroom management. These 

strategies may not be what you are used to and may require changes on your 

part. While there is no perfect method for eliminating all challenging 

behaviors, these are the strategies that I endorse and believe in as being the 

most effective for creating a positive classroom climate, based on my own 

experiences and research. Some of these strategies are more practical for 

elementary age classrooms, but many of these strategies can be used for all 

students from preschool to high school.

If you cannot get a student to follow rules, complete work, or be kind to 

other students after you have consistently implemented the strategies in this 

article, talk to your school team (administrators, guidance counselor, etc.) to 

determine what else can be done to help this student. The school team may 

need to meet with the child’s parents and additional strategies may need to 

be put in place like an individualized behavior plan and/or support from 

professionals like the guidance counselor, school psychologist, or principal.

Pupil playing sports
Gifted and talented learners need and enjoy variety and challenge. This requires that lessons be variously differentiated by:
  • outcome (learning objective)
  • task
  • process (the method of teaching)
  • pupil grouping
  • tailoring the content of the lesson for the individual (personalised learning agenda)
  • provision (access to specialists)
  • choice and self-direction
  • learning style.
These enrichment activities may be delivered by the school, by experts or be extra curricular. It is important however, to make them worthwhile and to include content and experiences that sufficiently stretch learners.

Master Your Memory

Master Your Memory


This course is for YOU if:
    ·You want to effortlessly memorize and recall information.
    ·You want to cut down the time you study or prepare for something.
    ·You want to have your mind work for you instead of you for it.
    ·You want to be more organized.
    ·You want to improve your relationships in your life.
    ·You want to create success in school, career, or business.
The difference with this program:
The difference between this course and other memory courses out there is that most courses only focus on giving you memory techniques (which we DO give you in this courses). Knowing memory techniques is great, however they are of limited help if you don’t truly know how your brain works and, specifically, how take in information and recall it. By knowing how to master your memory you will be able to more easily apply these techniques and take control of your mind at a deeper level.

Allow them to reach their potential....


Jodi was lucky enough to get into one of the few schools available to help her reach her potential.



Katy Perry and Jodi DiPiazza sang "Firework" at the Beacon Theater in New York on Oct 13. 
"Night of Too Many Stars: America Comes Together for Autism Programs" is hosted by Jon Stewart and raises money with NYCA (New York Collaborates for Autism) to support and create autism programs, schools, and services all over the country. Programs covering everything from the intensive education kids with autism need at a young age to social training for adults who want to contribute in the workplace. We've even created a "Teach the Teachers" program that helps train more teachers to work in the public school systems, for the many kids with autism who can't get into the few quality schools that can help them. 1 in 88 kids are now diagnosed on the Autistic spectrum. Many great organizations support research to unravel the mystery behind this condition. Night of Too Many Stars is working to help people who live with autism now.

Paintings in 3D_ what technology can do?

Italian experimental artist and animator Rino Stefano Tagliafierro has brought paintings to life in animated GIFs. Using Adobe After Effects animation software, he takes paintings (largely from the Renaissance era) and modifies them slightly to make them appear as if they are moving.
