See on Scoop.it - Psychology Matters



“Abnormal brain development in high-risk infants who develop autism may be detected as early as age 6 months — before the appearance of autism symptoms.

Autism is typically diagnosed around the age of 2 or 3. Research suggests that the symptoms of autism — problems with communication, social interaction and behavior — can improve with early intervention.”

Distance Education for Teacher Professional Development

See on Scoop.it - Studying Teaching and Learning



“In the future, we may all learn via the Internet, with seamless on- and off-line learning opportunities, and distance education, unlike face-to-face learning, offers opportunities for scale. Before we reach this shimmering future, we should ask three vital questions about our current reality:

  1. Is distance education a viable solution to attain the kind of high quality teachers students need?
  2. If so, how can we develop, deploy, and measure distance education for teachers and how do we define and measure impact?
  3. Can distance education achieve both quality and scale or are they mutually exclusive?”
