Visual Thinking: Where Learning Meets Design - Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE:

Visual Thinking: Where Learning Meets Design - Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: | ELA Pedagogy in Motion:Common Core:Education:Leadership | Scoop.it

What is "the value of illustrative lessons and design-based investigations...using one's visual imagination to approach educational problems (whether historical, literary, mathamatical, or scientific) can yield tremendous dividents in student collaboration and engagement."

This post explores visual thinking with an excellent video by Sean Kelly called "Visual Thinking: Writing with Pictures" (which is worth the 3 minutes it will take to watch it). As always there are great resources, in this case looking at mind mapping. And to show both sides of this story you will also find a link to an article 'Data Visualization: It's Pretty, But Is It Useful?'

A great post to gather ideas about visual thinking!

Teaching Your Students How to Have a Conversation

Teaching Your Students How to Have a Conversation | ELA Pedagogy in Motion:Common Core:Education:Leadership | Scoop.it

While it is impossible to know all of the reasons, there is no doubt that learning to listen and talk is an extremely important way to broaden knowledge, enhance understanding and build community. Perhaps this is why the core standards in English-language arts include an important emphasis on developing speaking and listening, the basic tools for conversation. This eight tips can be used regularly to help students learn good conversational skills.

Audrey's curator insight, November 18, 2013 4:32 PM

The tips are: Imitate good conversations; encourage non-verbal behaviour as it shows interest; challenge hurtful comments; ask open-ended questions; Do not accept , 'I dont'know'. Ask, 'What do you think?; Ask students informal questions, e.g. about their other classes; make eye contact.  This shows you are listening; encourage turn-taking.

How Our Minds Mislead Us: The Marvels and Flaws of Our Intuition

How Our Minds Mislead Us: The Marvels and Flaws of Our Intuition | ELA Pedagogy in Motion:Common Core:Education:Leadership | Scoop.it

"Every year, intellectual impresario and Edge editor John Brockman summons some of our era’s greatest thinkers and unleashes them on one provocative question, whether it’s the single most elegant theory of how the world works orthe best way to enhance our cognitive toolkit. This year, he sets out on the most ambitious quest yet, a meta-exploration of thought itself:Thinking: The New Science of Decision-Making, Problem-Solving, and Prediction (public library) collects short essays and lecture adaptations from such celebrated and wide-ranging (though not in gender) minds as Daniel Dennett, Jonathan Haidt, Dan Gilbert, and Timothy Wilson, covering subjects as diverse as morality, essentialism, and the adolescent brain.

One of the most provocative contributions comes from Nobel-winning psychologist Daniel Kahneman — author of the indispensable Thinking, Fast and Slow, one of the best psychology books of 2012 — who examines “the marvels and the flaws of intuitive thinking.”
