My 10 Favorite Educational Mind Maps

My 10 Favorite Educational Mind Maps | Dyslexia, Literacy, and New-Media Literacy | Scoop.it

They may look like jumbled and messy flowcharts for the insane, but mind maps are actually extremely useful and perfect tools for brainstorming. You essentially take a flow of ideas and translate them into interconnected webs designed to help clarify your thinking (or mind, as it were).

 

==========================================

 

Gust MEES

 

You can use mindmaps also when you organize an event, to make sure that you don't forget anything, e.g. http://gustmeesfr.files.wordpress.com/2011/12/vdujwtjyx3uq-ri20vw-tipmindmap17-apr-09-15-171.jpg  It's a mindmap which I used in 2004 already to organize a Theater piece about learning basics of #IT-Security which you can follow here http://gustmeesfr.wordpress.com/2011/12/28/securite-pc-et-internettheatre-interactif-et-pedagogique/

How Technology is Changing the Way Children Think and Focus | Psychology Today

How Technology is Changing the Way Children Think and Focus | Psychology Today | Dyslexia, Literacy, and New-Media Literacy | Scoop.it

 

 By Jim Taylor, Ph. D.

 

"There is...a growing body of research that technology can be both beneficial and harmful to different ways in which children think. Moreover, this influence isn’t just affecting children on the surface of their thinking. Rather, because their brains are still developing and malleable, frequent exposure by so-called digital natives to technology is actually wiring the brain in ways very different than in previous generations. What is clear is that, as with advances throughout history, the technology that is available determines how our brains develops. For example, as the technology writer Nicholas Carr has observed, the emergence of reading encouraged our brains to be focused and imaginative. In contrast, the rise of the Internet is strengthening our ability to scan information rapidly and efficiently.

 

"The effects of technology on children are complicated, with both benefits and costs. Whether technology helps or hurts in the development of your children’s thinking depends on what specific technology is used and how and what frequency it is used. At least early in their lives, the power to dictate your children’s relationship with technology and, as a result, its influence on them, from synaptic activity to conscious thought.

 

"Over the next several weeks, I’m going to focus on the areas in which the latest thinking and research has shown technology to have the greatest influence on how children think: attention, information overload, decision making, and memory/learning. Importantly, all of these areas are ones in which you can have a counteracting influence on how technology affects your children."

The Most Important Education Technology in 200 Years | Dyslexia, Literacy, and New-Media Literacy | Scoop.it

Technology will define where online education goes next. All those millions of students clicking online can have their progress tracked, logged, studied, and probably influenced, too. Talk to Khan or anyone behind the MOOCs (which largely sprang from university departments interested in computer intelligence) and they’ll all say their eventual goal isn’t to stream videos but to perfect education through the scientific use of data. Just imagine, they say, software that maps an individual’s knowledge and offers a lesson plan unique to him or her.

How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators

How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators | Dyslexia, Literacy, and New-Media Literacy | Scoop.it

TWITTER TRANSFORMS EDUCATORS


Before the advent of Twitter, most educators I know had limited opportunities to collaborate with colleagues outside their building. Some subscribed to listservs or participated in online forums, but these outlets lacked critical mass; teachers also networked at in-person conferences and training sessions, but these isolated events didn't provide ongoing support.

 

Enter Twitter. I've heard many educators say that Twitter is the most effective way to collaborate and that they've learned more with Twitter than they have from years of formal professional development.

 

Here are some of the specific ways educators are using Twitter to collaborate:

9 Characteristics Of 21st Century Learning

9 Characteristics Of 21st Century Learning | Dyslexia, Literacy, and New-Media Literacy | Scoop.it
The label of “21st Century learning” is vague, and is an idea that we here at TeachThought like to take a swing at as often as possible, including:

 

 –weighing the magic of technology with its incredible cost and complexity

 

–underscoring the potential for well thought-out instructional design

 

–considering the considerable potential of social media platforms against its apparent divergence from academic learning

 

Some educators seek out the ideal of a 21st century learning environment constantly, while others prefer that we lose the phrase altogether, insisting that learning hasn’t changed, and good learning looks the same whether it’s the 12th or 21st century.

 

At TeachThought, we tend towards the tech-infused model, but do spend time exploring the limits and challenges of technology, the impact of rapid technology change, and carefully considering important questions before diving in head-first. 

 

The following take on 21st century learning developed by TeachThought is notable here because of the absence of technology. There is very little about iPads, social media, 1:10 laptops, or other tech-implementation. In that way, it is closer to the “classic” approach to “good learning” than it is the full-on digital fare we often explore.

 

The size of the circles on the map are intended to convey priority.
