A great collection of data visualisation tools, categorised by the characteristics of the data you want to show.

Rappresentare: raccontare la realtà in modo tale da attrarre in modo efficace l'attenzione del nostro interlocutore/lettore. In una società iperconnessa e dialogica, fondamentale competenza.

The Data Visualization Catalogue is a powerful tool to guide selection of data visualization methodologies. I am looking forward to incorporating this resource into my courses wherever possible.

TeachThought.com has a series of posts about self-directed learning by Terry Heick and the staff, well worth a read! “

 

“Learning is most effective when it’s personalised; it means something to the learner. That happens when people feel they are participants and investors in their own learning, shaping what and how they learn, and able to articulate its value to them.” — Leadbeater, Charles

It is interesting how few classroom teachers and administrators are aware of what self-directed learning is. SDL is an imperative for our children.

My Thoughts:

You can't teach someone how to learn. You can give them helpful tips and advice, but a single structure for education is not going to work for everyone. It's so much harder for people to learn their true potential, to reach their goals, when they're only shown a single path to them. You show them the path through the forest, but what if there's a rock face nearby that also leads up to where they want to go, and what if they happen to be a fantastic rock climber? It just makes more sense to show someone a map if you can, instead of directing them towards only one path.

Test and Assess – be a curator!

Test and Assess – be a curator! | E-Learning Suggestions, Ideas, and Tips | Scoop.it
A key component to this process, which is tied directly into active assessment strategies, is synthesizing or making sense of the information gathered. Sense making can be writing a blog post using the links (like this post) or summarizing the key points in a presentation. Gathering and collecting specific content points is the beginning, and creating the theme is where an individual demonstrates their analysis and evaluation of the content included in a post or presentation shared. Kanter wrote, “Content curation is not about collecting links or being an information pack rat, it is more about putting them into a context with organization, annotation, and presentation.”

This article will help you understand how curating relates to both Bloom's taxonomy and the Engagement Pyramid proposed by Charlene Li and Jeremiah Owyang.


For those who must plan to standards, this article will give you great theoretical backing for teaching and using curation in your classroom. 


Bronwyn Desjardins's curator insight, December 27, 2012 5:19 PM

I agree. Education used to be about finding the information. With potential access to everything now, the focus should be on making sense of it and finding connections, drawing correlations and making conclusions - to become thinkers.
