What do we and don't we know about the brain? It used to be that we thought we knew it all. Well, maybe not all. But, over the last couple decades new research reveals and debunks some of our previ...

Η γνωστική ψυχολογία και οι νευροεπιστήμες έχουν αναδείξει τη σημασία των γνωστικών και μεταγνωστικών δεξιοτήτων  που λαμβάνουν μέρος στην μνήμη εργασίας, στην πορεία για τη  μάθηση.

This is part of the post on infographics as well, but is interesting enough to have a link just in its own.

Infographic: A Beautiful Calendar Designed Around 12 Different Types Of Measurement

Infographic: A Beautiful Calendar Designed Around 12 Different Types Of Measurement | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

Calendars come in all sorts of forms, from the purely functional apps on our smartphones to the propped-up desktop ones that are mostly just a means of delivering a new Far Side joke every day. The Units of Measure Calendar Poster, as its name suggests, isn’t the most straightforward one to categorize. Or even one that’s easy to recognize as a calendar at all.


It doesn’t leave any room for you to jot down appointments, though it does include all 365 days, which you can notch off one by one. Mostly, it’s just an exquisite graphical compilation of 12 different units of measurement, a tightly packed collection of diagrams and conversion tables and other neat looking things of the sort.

Three Ways To Look At The World As A Village | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

"A couple of days ago I read an article by Ryann Warlickabout an infographic displaying the world as 100 people. I've seen infographics like this before and you probably have too. Ryann used the infographic as the basis for helping students think about identifying people that they can help. I encourage you to read the short article."

Richard Byrne provides three infographics that look at how one might view the world as 100 people. Why choose three infographics? We have many different learners in our classrooms and what works for one may not work for another...thus three infographics. You might use them to launch a discussion on how we perceive information or use them when teaching students about infographics and have them consider which they find best illustrates the information and discuss why it does.

A Detailed History Of Social Media - Infographic

A Detailed History Of Social Media - Infographic | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

Do you know the history of social media? Think we'll remember Facebook in 20 years? This detailed timeline is a must-see.


Social media began decades before the Facebook era. It started, more or less, with CompuServe and Arpanet back in 1969. A couple years later, the first-ever email was sent.

It has evolved over the past few decades into a powerful tool, as seen in this social media history timeline. With so much that’s happened over the past few decades, we can only guess what’s coming next for social media.
