High spatial ability is necessary in many fields, particularly in the visual and performing arts and in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). "Serving Visual-Spatial Learners" seeks to offer teachers, parents, and others who work with pre-K–grade 12 students a variety of means by which they can offer a spatially focused education and better address the needs of students with visual-spatial ability. The book seeks to answer the question: Can spatial ability be improved in educational settings, and, if so, how?

Scale In Conscious Experience

This volume is the result of the third Appalachian Conference on Behavioral Neurodynamics which focused on the problem of scale in conscious experience. Set against the philosophical view of "eliminative materialism," the purpose of this conference was to facilitate communication among investigators who approach the study of consciousness and conscious phenomena from a variety of analytical levels. One speculative outcome of the conference is that the columnar arrangement within primary sensory cortices may provide the local isolation necessary for nonlocal interactions to occur. In addition, the relationship between unit activity and field potentials within a circumscribed region of cortex may provide the other enigmatic aspect of neurophysiological nonlocality, namely, the common context in the macro scale. So instead of a problem looking for a solution, scale becomes a solution to a problem. Only further research will determine the utility of the ideas expressed here.

Literatuuropgave : p. 314-337 Met samenv. in het Nederlands Centraal staat de empirische fundering van de instrumentele en kunstintrinsieke doelen van kunstzinnige vorming, dat wil zeggen de vraag in welke mate het bereiken van de gewenste effecten empirisch is aangetoond. Na een inventariserend overzicht van onderzoek naar effecten van kunstzinnige vorming spitst de studie zich toe op een belangrijk doel van de beeldende vakken: de ontwikkeling van de visuele waarneming, of het 'leren zien'. Eerder verricht onderzoek naar de effecten van beeldende vakke n wordt met behulp van twee meta-analyses kwantitatief samengevat.

In my estimation Giftedness 101 ranks high among authoritative texts devoted to this particular population of children. It not only offers thorough experience and knowledge-based insights to those who are already or are contemplating serving the social emotional needs of these children in the future, but also those who profess to educate future teachers, those who would venture out into classrooms charged with the teaching and many others besides. It should be required reading for politicians - especially those who shape educational policy."--Gifted and Talented International "Linda Silverman is an articulate, insightful, authoritative, and extremely "gifted" international expert in the assessment of giftedness...[She] has created a gem with Giftedness 101. The fields of psychology and education should welcome this vibrant book with open arms." Alan S. Kaufman, PhD Yale Child Study Center School of Medicine "This is a really terrific book! I'm really impressed at how much information has been packed into it, how accessible it is (without talking down to the audience), and how well the author has parsed the many key issues in the world of giftedness. Parents and mental health professionals with find this book incredibly useful. I look forward to sharing it far and wide. I think it is a book that was badly needed and will really fill a niche." Corin Goodwin CEO & Executive Director, Gifted Homeschoolers Forum This is the most thorough history, explanation, and call to action for gifted advocates you will find."--Laughing at Chaos Blog What is giftedness? Is it the potential for success or is it the experience of being an "outsider"? This book addresses the unique psychological needs of gifted children, which are often manifested as "feeling different," and examines special issues such as gifted children with learning disabilities, gender considerations, implications of socio-economic status, and more. Giftedness 101 dispels common myths about giftedness and challenges the view that eminence is the true signifier of giftedness. It offers specific guidelines to psychologists, parents, and teachers; describes comprehensive assessment of the gifted; provides support for the twice exceptional; and focuses on the complex inner world of the gifted. The book defines giftedness as a psychological reality with powerful ramifications throughout the lifespan. Giftedness 101 will be a valuable, eye-opening resource for psychologists, educators, and other professionals who work with the gifted, as well as gifted individuals and their families. Key Features: Provides a concise, accessible overview of one of the most important and challenging topics in psychology and education Examines the concept of giftedness across the lifespan Covers both the intellectual assessment and development of gifted individuals as well as the psychological well-being issues of this population Written by a prominent expert in the field of the psychology of giftedness
