Dynamisons la scolarité des élèves à haut potentiel !
Le cerveau surdoué
April 5, 2017
Les neurosciences commencent à percer les mystères du fonctionnement du cerveau. Un organisme américain, Gifted Research and Outreach (GRO) a publié un article qui recueille les premiers résultats de ces travaux concernant la spécificité des personnes à haut potentiel.
L'article pointe notamment les particularités suivantes :
des zones cérébrales plus volumineuses,
une plus grande connexion entre zone cérébrales,
un cerveau qui fonctionne plus efficacement,
des zones cérébrales étendues dédiées à l’intelligence émotionnelle,
des zones cérébrales étendues qui répondent activement au défi.
Dans le cadre de la préparation de la thèse, j'ai fait une traduction de cet article et je l'ai soumise aux auteurs : ils l'ont fortement appréciée et m'ont autorisé à la diffuser sur le site de l'ALFRED.
We are so happy you reached out to us, and are honored that you would like to publish the GRO article on your website. Our mission is to get this information out to the world and your efforts help that tremendously.
We sincerely appreciate you sending the translated version to us as well. Because this information is new, we are pretty particular about how it is worded. Accordingly, we had a translator who works with us look at the article as you sent it. I am very happy to say, she thought you did a fabulous job (and she is very particular). Thank you for all the work you did. The only change we would request is actually just a single word. In the very beginning, the paragraph that describes how Kyle behaves in the classroom, the article notes that the teacher is relieved because he is being put on medication. In your translation, you used the word "traitement" (treatment). We would greatly prefer that the word "medicament" (medication) be used here instead. The reason for this request is that one of the things we wanted to highlight in this particular example is the tendency for professionals to incorrectly prescribe medicine to the gifted population. I do not believe that this is as much of a problem in your country as it is in the U.S. (you are fortunate!), but here in the U.S. it is almost shameful how often medication is used as a first option.
If that one word change is acceptable to you, then by all means you have our permission to post the article on your website, and please once again accept our appreciation. With YOUR permission, we will advertise your efforts on our Facebook page and provide a link to your website as well.
