Learner-based Teaching

Shelagh Robinson Teacher, Dawson College

In an earlier Profweb story, Simple Technologies Transform Our Brains, Shelagh Robinson related her fascination with mirror reading, and its usefulness illustrating the plurality between the right and left hemispheres of the brain. The title alluded to the fact that one of the most useful tools for presenting mirror reading was a simple overhead projector, and transparencies to reverse images.
